INSIDE LOOK: Candy Sushi Culinary Workshop at 2018 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

in Disney, Entertainment, Walt Disney World

Take a look at the Candy Sushi Culinary Workshop, presented by Skittles, one of the newest offerings at 2018 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival at Walt Disney World.

Foodies beware, Epcot has brought a super-sweet twist to the traditional Asian sushi dish in this all-new Candy Sushi Culinary Workshop, a complimentary experience found at 2018 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

In this new experience, guests get to learn how to roll a sushi-inspired confectionary creation with real Disney chefs.

Found at Sunshine Seasons in The Land pavilion, this experience invites guests of all ages to sharpen their itamae skills in this family-friendly culinary workshop. You’ll be taught how to turn your favorite classic sweets like dummies, fruit strips and crisped rice into masterful maki- or nigiri-style sushi rolls.

The Experience

The class begins with all guests taking their seats around a special seating area roped off in the dining area of Sunshine Seasons restaurant. Sitting in front of each guest is a bundle of sweets including two sheets of crisped rice, two Fruit Roll-Ups, a small package of M&M’s, a set of two Twix bars and a package of Swedish Fish.

Next to the sweet bundles are sushi rolling mats, a folding chef hat, and three sushi recipe cards. Each card gives step-by-step instructions for the creation of the Candy Sushi each guest is about to make.

The next sushi roll we created during the workshop was the Candy ForYa Roll.

Guests were instructed to cut the second crisped rice sheet into four pieces, which we were then told to roll into four individual balls.

Next came the unraveling and the cutting up of our second Fruit Roll-Up into four separate strips.

Then came placing the Swedish Fish on top of our four crisped rice balls, which we were to wrap in our cut up Fruit Roll-Ups.
