“Food” & Garden ’18 Flash Report: Pulled Pig Slider – THE SMOKEHOUSE: Barbecue and Brews (American Adventure)

An annual favorite of most, this dish made a huge comeback this year.  How so, you ask?  Well, in its first years as a “Food” & Garden offering, this Pulled Pig Slider was presented with a solid amount of pork on a full size “burger” bun.

In 2017, Epcot dialed the bun – and meat – back to “slider size”.  It was quite a disappointment, to be honest.  Well, I’m happy to report that, although 2018’s version still sports a true slider bun, the portion of pork was very delicious and quite generous!  Score, Smokehouse!

“Food” & Garden ’18 Flash Report: Toasted Pretzel Bread with Ham and Melted Gruyère Cheese – Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market (Germany)

Germany’s Toasted Pretzel Bread with Ham and Melted Gruyère Cheese was less impressive than I had hoped.  In fact, to my surprise, I found Bauernmarkt’s potato pancakes to be much more enjoyable.

Imagine a miniature pretzel roll that is squashed flat.  Toast it with a slice of ham and some cheese and you have this dish.  Although the meat and cheese were tasty, I found the roll to be a bit too dry and chewy.  Go with the pancakes, folks.

“Food” & Garden ’18 Flash Report: Fried Cauliflower with Chili Ranch Sauce – Taste of Marrakesh (Morocco)

I know.  Fried Cauliflower with Chili Ranch Sauce.  It sounds like an incredibly mundane and simple dish, doesn’t it?  Well, it was.  It was also pretty darn good!  The coating was pleasantly crispy.  The cauliflower was quite tender.  Very good with or without the sauce, folks!
