Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Fleur de Lys Confit de Canard

The full description of this is Confit de Canard, Pommes de Terre Sarladaise (Pulled Duck Confit with Garlic and Parsley Potatoes)… The evening we tried this, we also had the Gnocchi Parisien and the Kronenbourg Blanc 1664.

The duck was very rich and the flavor was okay, but not as “ducky” as we prefer

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Fleur de Lys Gnocchi Parisien

The full description is…

Gnocchi Parisien a la Provencal (Parisian Style Dumplings with Vegetables and Mushrooms)

The dumplings weren’t like Italian gnocchi at all in terms of shape or texture. It was more like someone had made a long “snake” of dough, cut it off into equal sections, and called it dumplings.

The vegetables

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Buttercup Cottage Field Greens Salad

I think of this as Buttercup’s Salad, the actual description is a lot longer…

Field Greens with Plant City Strawberries, Toasted Almonds and Farmstead Stilton (sounds good, doesn’t it?)

 

This item was made when Nick ordered it on a Monday evening (in other words, it wasn’t sitting around waiting for someone to come

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Buttercup Cottage Potato & Cheese Biscuit and Smoked Salmon Tartare

We made our way back to the Buttercup Cottage to sample the “Freshly Baked Potato and Cheddar Cheese Biscuit with Smoked Salmon Tartare”

We had this item last year -we couldn’t detect the cheese this year either.

The salmon was VERY lemony, maybe that’s where the strong lemon scent we’ve been smelling is coming

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

We recently stopped at The Smokehouse for a morning snack…

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

Ghost pepper dusted tilapia

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…
