2011 Food & Wine Booths

A couple of weeks ago, someone asked what the prices are for the food and drinks sold at the Food & Wine Festival. The DFB is starting to post pictures of the menus. Keep checking as more pictures will be added.

So, I was a little disappointed with the pork sliders. My favorite boothe ended up being Morocco, and the Beef Kefta Pockets. They were awesome! We went back to that booth twice, and there was usually no line. Folks were totally missing out.

Did you, or anyone in your party, try the Harissa chicken roll at the Morocco booth? I've got that on my list of must-tries.

I went last year. I didn't feel like I got the full experience. Oh how I would love to go back and partake in EVERY booth.

Did you try Argentina? The beef skewer with chimichurri sauce on it, and the beef empanadas were a huge hit with our group. I voted those as the best that I tried.

ZZ - those have always been some of my faves.

I've only gotten to "spot hit" a few booths so far. DH partied while I was running the other nite, and gave hi marks to Singapore and Germany (I concur with Germany from previous years, but haven't done the Singapore stops that I can remember.) I was in Epcot for a couple of hours for an event last night, and managed to hit Ireland for the Lobster and Scallop Fisherman's Pie - excellent! Hot, fresh, like a lobster bisque topped with whipped potatoes. I also had a huge piece of lobster claw meat, and the portion was substantial. High marks. (It's sideways. But you get the gist.)

We'll be back for at least one more trip later on - probably end of month/beginning of Nov. Y'all will have all the deets by then...but if anything jumps out at me, I'll post.

No, we didn't. If it was even half as good as the Kefta though, I'm sure that you'll love it!

That Lobster pie sounds awesome! Can't wait to try it! Singapore is on my list, too, mainly because it's been years since I've had a Singapore Sling. That used to be my favorite drink! awesome

After 2 days, my top 5 would be:

Tuna and Salmon Sensation
Beef Empanada
Brazil's National Dish - Feijoada (a Black Bean and Pork Stew)
Jerk-spiced Chicken Drumstick with Mango Salsa
Kielbasa and Potato Pierogies with Caramelized Onions and Sour Cream

Not far behind:

Kalua Pork Slider with Sweet and Sour Dole Pineapple Chutney and Spicy Mayonnaise
Ropa Vieja (braised beef) with White Rice
Goulash Suppe
Xinjiang Barbecue Chicken Stick

Going back for lunch today, and will be sure to try the kefta pocket and chicken roll in Morocco.

@ SoloFriendly.....tried the Singapore Sling last year. Might be the strongest mixed drink I ever had. Yesterday I heard someone say in passing, "Singapore Sling is pure alcohol", so I don't think they have changed the recipe.

That's probably why it was my favorite! laugh
I'm kind of a lightweight now, though; not sure I can handle it.

JoAnn how many days do you estimate it will take you to go through this list. Just Curious?

Here's my list.

First day:
Australia - Shrimp on the Barbie
Argentina - Beef Empanada
Caribbean - Jerk-spiced Chicken Drumstick
Scandinavia - Swedish Meatballs
China - Black Pepper Shrimp
Japan - Spicy Tuna Roll
Belgium - Steamed Mussels
Morocco - Baklava

Second day:
Hawaii - Tuna Poke
Greece - Chicken Souvlaki
Canada - Maple Glazed Salmon
Morocco - Harissa Chicken Roll
New Zealand - Seared Sea Scallop
Singapore - Shrimp Cake
South Korea - Lettuce Wrap with Roast Pork and Kimchi Slaw
Mexico - Flan

I also have a few other booths on my list, but only if I'm still hungry (or, let's be honest, still not stuffed to the gills) after grazing at the above for most of each day. For the two days I'll be at Epcot, I intend to eat nowhere but Food and Wine booths, with the exception of a granola bar en route to the parks for breakfast.

I'll be at the festival on Friday and Saturday of my trip. I'll Sunday too if needed. I may not get through everything. It makes it easier making the plan of attack.

Since this thread has been moved up, might as well use it.

I've started cooking F&W recipes for poor hubby who had to skip our fall vacation and really regretted missing the festival. So far I've made the black pepper shrimp with sichuan noodles (using store-bought Chinese noodles instead of making noodles from scratch), the Caribbean jerk chicken with mango salsa, and from the 2005 F&W cookbook, the Canadian maple glazed salmon. The black pepper shrimp was as good as I remember; the jerk chicken was good but not quite the same because my mango was unfortunately not quite ripe enough.

Tonight it's chicken chipotle sausage and sweet corn polenta, also Canadian. That was hands-down my favorite dish at the 2011 festival, and I'm really hoping the homemade version is as good as I remember. The recipe calls for store-bought sausage, but I had to make my own because I couldn't find chicken chipotle sausage anywhere.

Anyone else do any cooking from the F&W Fest cookbooks?
