This fall, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin 2018 Food & Wine Classic debuts The Pig and The Poke, a new Hawaiian luau-themed area, and we’ve got a peek at some of the tasty items on the menu.
During the event, which takes place from October 26 – 28, the new area will take guests on a culinary journey to the Pacific. Along with Hawaiian decor, the area features several favorites from the state, including:
- Traditional Earth Baked Kalua Pork with steamed white rice, barrel-aged tamari and Napa cabbage
- Tuna Poke featuring Hawaiian yellowfin tuna, sushi rice, avocado relish and crispy fried wontons
- Finely Shaved Ice in a variety of tropical flavors: guava, pineapple, coconut cream, passion fruit, lychee, kiwi and mango
Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort Executive Chef Robert Ciborowski drew upon his years of living and working in Kapalua, Hawaii as inspiration for the dishes.
The Pig and The Poke joins the event’s returning themed areas, which include Carnival Corner, Chinatown, Bubble Lounge and a Beer Garden. Each area offers specialty cuisine in immersive atmospheres.
The Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic offers guests unlimited tastings at more than 60 stations featuring culinary selections from the hotel’s award-winning restaurants and wine from more than 30 wineries amidst a festive backdrop of live entertainment on the hotel’s scenic causeway. Upgraded ticket options allow guests to enjoy access to a beer garden featuring a wide selection of craft beers and Oktoberfest-inspired cuisine. The event also includes hands-on seminars with the hotel’s chefs and certified beverage experts as well as a Sunday Bubbles Brunch.
