Good morning, my friends! One last festival blast coming your way! Food & Wine never lets go of me!
Actually, I was able to slip in one last trip to World Showcase a week or so back. Previous to that, however, I hadn’t been back to sample Epcot’s festival cuisine since Opening Weekend!
Hey! It has been a busy few months!
Anyway, I learned a couple of things this time around. First … I’m definitely not a fan of smoked salmon. Even if it is Scotland’s Fresh Potato Pancake with Scottish Smoked Salmon.
Oh, I had tried smoked salmon many times in the past. I guess it is the texture of the fish that I don’t like. I’m going to have to stay away in the future.
I also discovered that, as much as I complain about Germany, they always find a way to draw me back in. Take their Roast Bratwurst in a Pretzel Roll, for example.
Yes, folks. I defied my sensibilities and sampled the brat. I’ll never learn my lesson, I guess.
You know what? A tzatziki martini featuring cucumber vodka and yogurt liqueur is very tasty and refreshing. I stopped by Greece to sample this delight.
Finally, New Zealand’s Lamb Meatball is definitely Food & Wine’s “champion” dish.
Not to be cheated out of enjoying my favorite item one last time, and to hold me over until next year, I “doubled-down” on the lamb. Yum!
