Food & Wine 2014 Preview

Anyone that has followed TPR for any length of time probably knows that our absolute FAVORITE event at Walt Disney World is Epcot's Food & Wine Festival. If you're a fan of food (who isn't?), wine (many people are), or beer (if you aren't, you should be), then this is the DO NOT MISS event of the theme park world!

This year, there will be 25 different 'marketplaces' where you can sample food & beverages from all over the world and the offerings are fantastic! To give you an idea of the different food culture, here are just some of the locations involved: Africa, Australia, Brazil, China, Germany, Hawaii, Ireland, Japan, Poland, Singapore, South Korea and much more!

Today we were invited to come taste a few of the items that will be offered at Epcot's Food & Wine 2014 that will run from September 19th - November 10th.

Today we are at Epcot for a preview of the 2014 International Food & Wine Festival - TPR's favorite event at Walt Disney World!

We were invited to the VIP area of The Living Seas for a private taste test!

Here is the menu of what we will be sampling today!

The menu looks fantastic! Can't wait to try some of the new items as well as a few of my past favorites.

Epcot executive chef Jens Dahlmann talks about some of the new items found at Food & Wine this year - Patagonia, which will combine some South American cuisine, the "Farm Fresh" offerings, and also some of the classic dishes from previous years that will be returning again.

So let's start tasting with the Sauerkraut Pierogi with Pork Goulash!

This was amazing! I am actually quite a fan of Pierogi's and the added pork was just wonderful! FUN FACT! The Polish word pierogi is plural; the singular form pieróg is rarely used, as a typical serving consists of several pierogi. (Isn't Wikipedia freakin' AWESOME?!)

I'm sorry, what was that? Did you just say the word "Habanero?"

Oh, why, yes you did! It was spicy and that's JUST how I like it! =)

And it wouldn't be Food & Wine without the beer! And this years selection looks like it's off to a good start!

The "Grass Fed Beef Slider" was one of my favorites and happy to see it's coming back!

This little nugget of beef will make you giddy with excitement!

And dessert fans? STOP RIGHT HERE! This is all you need! The carrot cake was fantastic!

And for the seafood lovers...

...this little pot of joy will give you an affair to remember. (Look, I know it's corny - why don't YOU try writing all my captions next time!) :P

Ok, let's everyone just stop for a second. Sit down. Something important is about to happen.

THIS!!! THIS RIGHT HERE!!! OMG!!!! I cannot even describe it (but I'll try.) I don't think it's a "beer", and it's not really a "wine" - It just tastes like a little bit of South Korean heaven! I don't even like grapefruit and WOW... It might have been one of the most amazing beverages I've tasted. (and yes it has alcohol, and no you can't taste it, and yes that is awesomely dangerous!!!)

Epcot executive chef Jens Dahlmann making some more delicious treats. Seriously, whatever this guy makes, I'll be more than happy to eat! Especially if the results of Food & Wine are anything to show for it!

Side note! (And VERY important!) It's 2.21 miles walking from the parking lot, all the way around Epcot, then back to your car. You'll burn about 275 calories doing this. The more you walk, the more Food & Wine you can have! (I really should be Kickstarting this diet idea!) ;)

See you guys at Epcot Food & Wine! The event runs September 19th to November 10th. We'll be there most days!
