2015 Epcot Int Flower & Garden Festival Kitchen Menu Line-up
March 4, 2015
There are so many new delightful food and beverage options at Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival running March 4th through May 17th, 2015.
Some new menu items for this year’s festival include a new kiosk called Botanas Botánico Outdoor Kitchen between France and Morocco pavilions will serve Cachapas with Farmer’s Cheese, a sweet yellow corn pancake, and Seafood Ceviche with shrimp, scallops and grouper with mango and avocado. It will be paired with the new La Tizana, a non-alcoholic punch finished with fresh fruit that can become an adult beverage with a splash of Santa Teresa RHUM Orange Liqueur.
Guests can enjoy free cooking demonstrations at 3 p.m. every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through May 17 at Port of Entry at the entrance to World Showcase. For each 15-minute demo, a Disney chef will prepare a dish that’s featured at one of the festival’s Outdoor Kitchens. You can also pick up a copy of the Taste of Epcot festival cookbook to make these recipes at home.
I can’t wait to hit up the Fleur de Lys kitchen to try the new Macaron Guimauve à la Fraise, a Strawberry Marshmallow Macaron and the Ice Pop Combination of French Peach Iced Tea, Grand Marnier Peach Raspberry Liqueur, and Vodka.
For the third year running, 11 marketplaces offer culinary specialties inspired by the gardens around the World Showcase as well as wines and beers pairings at each marketplace. Here is a complete list of the kiosk food and beverage line-up. Don’t forget to get your Garden Passports stamped as you taste around the World Showcase promenade. Below is our video from last year of the dishes we liked the most. Buon Appetito!
