Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – The Smokehouse Turkey Rib

We recently stopped at The Smokehouse for a morning snack…

yes, they use real wood

Since we were both pretty hungry, we got two orders of the Smoked Turkey “Rib” and a Maduro (Cigar City Brewing).

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Revisiting Urban Farm Eats (Tilapia and Beet Salad)

On April 7, we went back to Urban Farm Eats to have two items again (we skipped the Eggplant Scallop for a redo, we eat eggplant and spaghetti squash on a regular basis but not tilapia or beets)… Our main goals were (1) we liked them the first time around and we were hungry and

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Urban Farm Eats Ghost Pepper Dusted Tilapia

We were rather hesitant to try this offering from Urban Farm Eats… Biggest reason, we typically don’t like tilapia (no taste or it tastes like mud).

However, we’d been very pleased with the pickled beet salad and the eggplant scallop, so we were a bit more willing to try the

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Urban Farm Eats Beet Salad

All of the savories at the Urban Farm Eats Outdoor Kitchen seem interesting to us… We start with the Beet Salad…

Pickled Beet Salad with Goat Cheese Cream, Mizuna and Pistachios

Our concerns with this dish echo what some other Disney World Food Bloggers have said…

All of the goat cheese cream was at the

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Urban Farm Eats Eggplant Scallop

Okay, we’d heard that the eggplant was “slimy” and that the spaghetti squash was “flavorless” – so of course, we had to give it a try. First of all, we eat roasted eggplant a few times a week (in our frittata for breakfast); and secondly, we eat spaghetti squash once a week when Nick makes

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Buttercup Cottage Pork & Apple Sausage Roll

Now, I was a bit more keen to try this than Nick was… Partly because I loved the sausage rolls that Sandy bought for a picnic in the park in Gateshead England…

I don’t remember seeing any fantastic, orgasmic, OMG gotta have it blog posts from the first days of the Flower and Garden Festival…

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Buttercup Cottage Lemon Scones

We were eager to have the lemon scones from the Buttercup Cottage – a couple of reasons, (1) the offerings from the Cottage last year were quite good and (2) the scent of these lemon scones accosted us every time we walked past, just begging our taste buds to enjoy them.

When I saw photos

Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival 2014 – The Smokehouse Beef Brisket and Pulled Pork

Smoked Beef Brisket and Pulled Pig Slider

We liked the Beef Brisket and the Pulled Pork quite a bit last year when they debuted at the Flower and Garden Festival; so much so that we’ve talked about them to each other and anyone else who’d listen.

Smoked Beef Brisket and Pulled Pig Slider

First off, let me point out that the

Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival 2014 – The Smokehouse Beer Flight

The four beers in this flight proved to be better overall than the beer in the Florida Fresh flight.

They are presented left to right, top to bottom…

A quick stop at Katsura Grill, Japan Pavilion, Epcot

Katsura Grill in the Japan Pavilion at Epcot has long been a favorite of ours – especially back before we moved to the Lake Buena Vista area… back then, it was pretty much an “always do” when we’d vacation at Walt Disney World. The udon is consistently good and the beer is consistently cold.
