Food and Wine Time! by guest author Brent
Once a year foodies gather together in Epcot to
celebrate Food and Wine. It's a special celebration for anyone who
loves to put their adventurous taste buds to the test and try food
from all corners of the globe (Antarctica not included).
Unfortunately, I am not an adventurous eater. In
fact, I'm barely an eater. I am possibly one of the pickiest eaters
you will ever meet. I like the basic food groups: chicken, pizza,
burgers, ice cream, and cookies. Let's face it, you at these five
things you are guaranteed a long and happy life. Being a Disney fan
I always try to get excited for Food and Wine, but due to my
pickiness it is often difficult.
This year I've decided to try things differently. I
have decided to just dive on in and attempt to hit all 30 booths
around World Showcase Lagoon. I know that along the way there will
be foods I hate. And I also know that there will be several
(practically all) foods that I am not even interested in trying.
However, it is my promise to myself to go where no Brent has gone
before. So far I have attempted 10 booths and have lived to give my
quick summary of each item. Below are my extremely professional
critiques of the ten items I have had which are ranked from yucky to
yummy (highly sophisticated).
Australia: Grilled Lamb Chop with Mint Pesto and
Potato Crunchies: Yummy
Mexico: Taco de Rib-Eye with Salsa de Chipotle:
Pretty Yummy, but spicy
China: Chicken Potstickers: Yummy, but the sauce is
Italy: Ravioli de Formaggio all'Emilana: Very Yummy
Florida Local: Florida Grass Fed Beef Slider with
Monterey Jack and Sweet and Hot Pickles: Best of the Best!
France: Escargots Persillade en Brioche: DISGUSTING
Canada: Le Cellier Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon
with Truffle Butter Sauce: Yummy
Germany: Roast Bratwurst in Pretzel Roll: Yummy
Greece: Chicken Gyro with Tzatziki Sauce: Leaning
towards yummy, but nothing amazing
Desserts and Champagne: Frozen S'mores: DISGUSTING
So there you have it. My extremely sophisticated way
of ranking food at this year's Food and Wine so far! Now off to try
the final 20!
