Culinary Demonstration with Emily Ellyn – Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2014

This Epcot Food & Wine Experience took place on Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Our Celebrity Chef was Emily

We have reservations for Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2014!

We were able to get all of the reservations that we wanted, except two…

Dining Through the Decades: A Tribute to Walt Disney – we wanted reserved seating (the only way that doing events in the World Showplace is enjoyable for us), all sold out by the time I got to speak to a live

thoughts and plans for Food & Wine 2014

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 – Let’s wrap this up, final thoughts

We like to look back at each year’s Epcot International Food & Wine Festival before we really charge into Holidays at Disney World – it really helps us when we start planning the next year’s Festival. Our “festival habits” have changed a lot in recent years…

2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – Culinary Demonstration – lobster “yes”, what we expected “no”

Well, this was supposed to be a lobster dish with Ben Sergeant… it wasn’t. It was a lobster dish with a Disney chef (we were trying to avoid the Disney chefs this year, their demos just aren’t as good – we don’t consider Kevin Dundon to be a Disney chef, he’s Ireland’s Chef!)…

2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – Culinary Demonstration with Alisa Malavenda, POSH Salt(tm)

We did the POSH Salt Culinary Demo last year and were really impressed with the products and the presenters, so much so that it was one of our top two culinary demonstrations (the other one in the top two was Kevin Dundon 2012).
