This dining experience took place on Friday, October 17, 2014

We visited bluezoo lounge and Shula’s on a recent Friday night. We were both crazy hungry but trying to pace our tummies, so we started with a side order that we’ve never tried before…

Chickpea Panisse

They look like big french fries,

Cib’s Pasta Making Class at Swan & Dolphin Food & Wine Classic 2014

this event took place on Saturday, November 1, 2014

We attended this event in 2013 with Kris and Kevin (K2) and had a blast, we had arrived right before the event was to begin and discovered a generous spread of charcuterie, cheeses, vegetables, and breads. So this year, we knew to get here

Lunch at Tokyo Dining, Japan Pavilion, Epcot

This dining experience was an impromptu lunch at Tokyo Dining on August 22, 2014

There were some items that were new to us and with encouragement from Garin (the manager) and our server (Minori)- we decided to have the calamari. You know by now that we love calamari and mourn the loss of

breakfast at Les Halles in France with our niece

This experience took place on September 28, 2014 – sorry for the photo quality

Just a quick rundown…

We rarely stop at Les Halle Boulangerie Patissiere in the France Pavilion at Epcot. Not sure why, maybe because pastries and sandwiches aren’t our usual choices for breakfast. However, Nevie hadn’t eaten here yet and when

bluezoo (for more lamb)

This dining experience took place on September 26, 2014

We continued on our quest for lamb at bluezoo. Nevie had never been, we started going to bluezoo a few years after her last visit. Again, most of the evening was spent just enjoying our dinner and the company – so no copious notes

Lunch with an Animal Specialist at Sanaa, Animal Kingdom Lodge

This experience took place on September 27, 2014

This has become a favorite of ours – typically the Animal Specialists are enthusiastic about their work at Animal Kingdom Lodge and the food is very good (a wonderful way to get a great sampling of the food at Sanaa). Since Nevie is now a

Spice Road Table for more lamb!

This dining experience took place on September 26, 2014

If you remember Nevie’s lamb story (here), you’ll understand why Nick tried to think of all the places we could easily get lamb during her visit (other than the marketplace booths during Food & Wine, we hit those up early in the visit). Of

Spice Road Table – Stuffed Grape Leaves v2

this experience took place on Sunday, May 4, 2014

On Latifa’s suggestion, we ordered the Stuffed Grape Leaves with extra capers and raisins…

These were so much better. The fried capers were a wonderful new taste experience (now we want fried capers on EVERYTHING). The pine nuts added a little bit of crunch
