Here is a bit about my delicious days at Disney!
Donning my chef hat mouse ears, I began two delicious days at Disney Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival! Would the land of Mickey Mouse prove to be a gourmet destination? I was delightfully surprised.
I attended two cooking demonstrations by two Disney Chefs. What fun to sample my first taste of cactus—in an empanada prepared by Chef Javier. Here is a peak at how you prep a cactus!
Chef Dave prepared a Rock Shrimp & Crab BLT. What an intriguing combination! The “B” was baked prosciutto the “L” was Boston Bibb Aioli and the “T” was beautifully prepared tomatoes. Chef Dave shared a great tip to “crunch” the prosciutto: Put the prosciutto on parchment paper in a baking sheet and then cover it with a second baking sheet.
Each cooking demonstration was also paired with a special glass of wine.
During the evening, my dear friend, Dawn Meehan (from Mom 2 My 6 Pack), joined me for a “tour around the world” at Epcot.
We sampled delicacies from China, Brazil, Morocco, Italy, Mexico and pastries from France. It’s only during the Food and Wine Festival that all of the countries have sampling stations where you don’t have to eat a whole meal, but rather a taste of the cuisine. So, Chef Mickey, it’s two ears up for my delicious days at Disney!
