2010 Disney Food & Wine Festival
It's been a while since I've blogged so this post is a little delayed. Rich and I celebrated our 15-year wedding anniversary back in October while we were at Disney World with family. We had a great trip and Mom and Dad took the kids for a day so we could enjoy the Food & Wine festival in EPCOT. Coincidentally it was also the festival's 15th wedding anniversary, so we got a picture of us taken in front of a "15" sign. Not my best photo, but the only one we have. :-)
So the Food & Wine Festival takes place in the World's Showcase part of the park, where many countries from around the world are featured. Each country had a kiosk or two with appetizer-size portions of food from that region. In the photo above, we were between Mexico and Norway. We sat near a display of Viking relics while sipping a giant Margarita and listening to a mariachi band. Interesting mix.
We didn't actually eat any of the festival food since we dove the EPCOT aquarium at dinner and needed a substantial meal to carry us through. Instead, we enjoyed lunch at the Chefs de France, our favorite EPCOT restaurant. We started the meal with champagne and escargot. Typical of me, I ate it faster than I could remember to take a photo. Scrumptious. Then I had a vegetable lasagna made with crepes while Rich had their gooey baked macaroni and cheese. We ended the meal with creme brulee and profiteroles. Yumm. Great way to celebrate 15 years and highly recommend it to anyone else.
