Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014 – Buttercup Cottage Pork & Apple Sausage Roll

Now, I was a bit more keen to try this than Nick was… Partly because I loved the sausage rolls that Sandy bought for a picnic in the park in Gateshead England…

This was meaty and well balanced with the dough. Now it was a bit difficult to eat because the filling had separated from the crust (ring of crust and disk of pork and apple sausage). The apple wasn’t very prevalent. Regardless, Nick said that he’d take this pork offering over the pulled pork from The Smokehouse (uh oh) and I agree that this is more flavorful… I think this has made it to our “need to have again” list.

I thought it was weak and mild, not too interesting. Nick liked it more than I did, he liked the mustard seeds, the crispness of most of the vegetables (excepting the cauliflower, which he said was smaller than Chef Ryan’s cauliflower at bluezoo), and the green beans. I was expected something more akin to chow-chow, the piccalilli I grew up with from my eastern NC relatives was more like chow-chow.
