The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival officially kicks off today and runs through Nov. 13.
My husband and I were lucky enough to attend the First Bites opening reception dinner last night, which was an indoor preview of the sights, sounds and tastes that will be at this year’s festival. We dined on some amazing international dishes, attended a beverage seminar by Banfi Wines, and spotted HGTV’s Vern Yip at a meet and greet.
The dinner was amazing, and I surely found some new favorites that I’ll revisit at the festival over the next few weeks, including Shrimp and the Barbie with Pepper Berry Citrus Glaze (Australia), Kalua Pork Sliders with Sweet and Sour Dole Pineapple Chutney (Hawai’i, pictured above), and Seared Filet of Beef with Sweet Potatoes and Braai Sauce (South Africa).
What are you most looking forward to at this year’s festival?
