A Glimpse of Food & Wine ’18?

What time of the year is it, folks?  Well, here are some hints … July 30, 2013.  July 24, 2014.  July 16, 2015.  July 11, 2016.  July 12, 2017.  Huh?  What?

My friends, those are the Food & Wine menu release dates for the past five years.  What’s the big deal, you ask?  July 15, 2018.  This year’s menus have to be very close!

In the meantime, here’s a glimpse of some new things coming to this year’s party!  Bon appetit!

  • New Brunswick Slider.  Imagine Slow-braised Beef Brisket “Pot Roast Style” with Horseradish Cream, Crispy Fried Onions on a Potato Roll.  There’ll be pickled vegetables served on the side.  This little gem will be found at the Hops & Barley Marketplace!
  • Butternut Squash Ravioli with Brown Butter Vinaigrette, Parmesan Cheese, and Pumpkin Seeds.  A vegetarian item, it will be served by the Wine & Dine Studio.
  • Charred Chimichurri Skirt Steak.  Accompanied by a Smoked Corn Cake and Pickled Vegetable Slaw, Flavors from Fire will sell this delight!

“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!
