Food & Wine’s Words of “Wisdom”?

In “yester-year” terms, Epcot’s Wonders of Life Pavilion “was devoted to health and body-related attractions”.

It’s quite fitting, but also somewhat curious, then, that, these days, its main claim to fame is to house Food & Wine’s festival center.

After all, the body can’t maintain health without food.  Right?  Now, wine?  That’s another story.

The festival center is a site for cooking demonstrations and celebrity sightings.  Plus, plenty of merchandise can be found available for purchase.

And, within its bunch of festival-centric goods and products, one can even find “words to live by”!  Well, they’re words to be amused by, at the very least.  See?

The lesson?  Start your Monday with plenty of coffee.  Plenty.  You won’t get a chance to chase it down with a nice big glass of red wine until much later today.

After all, we have to wait until 5 PM to pull the corkscrew out of the kitchen drawer, don’t we?  Have a great week, folks!  Cheers!

Food & Wine ’14 “Flash Report”: Brazilian Cheese Bread

We have a fellow reader to thank for this “Flash Report”.

Mrs. All in WDW and I haven’t, as yet, taken the chance to try Brazil’s Cheese Bread, but, thanks to Elizabeth R., we have a picture!

Cheese Bread

Elizabeth’s review?  “It is my favorite dish so far this year!  It’s worth trying if you go back, Bob.”  Well, as I said, we’ve failed on that mission, so far … but there’s still time!

Thanks for the report, Elizabeth!

Food & Wine ’14 “Flash Report”: Spicy Hand Roll

I know everyone’s tastes are different, but this dish is never spicy enough for me.

Sorry, Japan.  You weren’t “first in show” this year either.

Food & Wine ’14 “Flash Report”: Florida Grass-fed Beef Slider

So, this one didn’t make my original Pre-Festival Top 25 because, last year, the Florida marketplace’s version was dry as dirt.

Unfortunately, Hops & Barley’s recipe, although sporting a unique pimento cheese-loaded taste, was just as overcooked.
