Planning for Food & Wine is always exciting and at the same time a bit daunting…

How many special events do we want to do? How many special events fit into our schedule (we always seem to have lots of visitors during Food & Wine, and isn’t a given that they want to go to

2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – A Good-Bye and Thank-You to the Festival Center Cast Members

I mentioned earlier that we attended the last Culinary Demonstration of the 2013 Epcot Food & Wine Festival… At the end of our demo, the cast members who had participated in the culinary demos, the wine demos, the cocktail demos, etc… were recognized for another successful Food & Wine. Pam Smith made it a point

2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – South Korea Marketplace – Lettuce Wrap with Roast Pork

So, yesterday I showed you one of the two items from our “must have” or “really want” lists that we were able to get AND I told you that some booths were sold out of some items (excepting Ireland – they only had dessert left)…

We both had the lettuce wrap from South Korea on

2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – Poland Marketplace – Zapiekanki & Okocim O.K. Beer

Okay, the zapiekanki is an example of memory outpacing actual experience.

We both thought that this was one of our hits from 2012 (ha! not so much)… So we had eagerly awaited a cooler evening during the 2013 Festival when we could get this tasty gem and actually enjoy it. So, on the first cool

Dennis DeYoung (formerly of Styx) Eat to the Beat Concert

Okay, I know that the photos taken with my iPhone aren’t that great but this concert was… In fact, we stayed later than we intended to, just to see the last set. A few quick comments

2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – New Zealand Marketplace – Venison Sausage

The day of the huge group tour of food & wine – we split a Lamb Meatball with Spicy Tomato Chutney from the New Zealand Marketplace, it wasn’t any better than last year, and we each had our own Venison Sausage with Pickled Mushrooms, Baby Arugula & Black Currant Reduction, it was good enough to

2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – Germany Marketplace – Schinkennudeln & Riesling Kabinett

I wanted to sample the Schinkennudeln (Pasta Gratin with Ham & Cheese) – Nick didn’t have this as a “must have” on his list…

a digression, not to be confused with digestion

By the way… Have you heard of the new cookbook that’s all over the blogosphere the last few weeks? It’s “Melt: The Art
