Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is an annual celebration at Walt Disney World which brings food, beverage and entertainment offerings from around the globe to the Central Florida resort. Today, we have an exclusive look at some of this famous festival’s international offerings.


Beginning with some of the festival’s food offerings, coming to Flavors from Fire is the savory Charred Chimichurri Skirt Steak on a Smoked Corn Cake with Pickled Vegetable Slaw and Cilantro Aioli.

For those who like bites on the go, the Hops & Barley festival booth will be offering the New Brunswick Slider, made with slow-braised beef brisket “Pot Roast Style” with horseradish cream and crispy fried onions. It’s served on a potato roll with pickled vegetables on the side.

A cheesy option from this year’s festival, found at The Wine & Dine Studio, is the Butternut Squash Ravioli. This dish is made with Brown butter vinaigrette, parmesan cheese, and pumpkin seeds.

Coming to Brazil, the Moqueca is a dish that serves up only the best fish from under the sea. The Brazilian seafood stew features scallops, shrimp and white fish with coconut-lime sauce and steamed rice.

A dish that is not only savory but sweet is the Jerk-spiced Chicken Lollipop, made with roasted sweet plantain salad and a mango chutney yogurt. This offering can be found at the Islands of the Caribbean booth.
