This is the fifth year for the Food & Wine Classic and I’ve attended Chad’s Sake Class every time it’s been offered, Nick’s only missed one (2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013). This is a

Lunch at Tokyo Dining, Japan Pavilion, Epcot

This dining experience was an impromptu lunch at Tokyo Dining on August 22, 2014

There were some items that were new to us and with encouragement from Garin (the manager) and our server (Minori)- we decided to have the calamari. You know by now that we love calamari and mourn the loss of

breakfast at Les Halles in France with our niece

This experience took place on September 28, 2014 – sorry for the photo quality

Just a quick rundown…

We rarely stop at Les Halle Boulangerie Patissiere in the France Pavilion at Epcot. Not sure why, maybe because pastries and sandwiches aren’t our usual choices for breakfast. However, Nevie hadn’t eaten here yet and when

Ireland Marketplace Booth – Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2014

This not-so-much dining experience took place on October 29, 2014

We were at Epcot to attend the Wine Pairing at Spice Road Table; we were a bit hungry and there was still over an hour and a half before seating for the event – so we stopped to get an old favorite. …

bluezoo (for more lamb)

This dining experience took place on September 26, 2014

We continued on our quest for lamb at bluezoo. Nevie had never been, we started going to bluezoo a few years after her last visit. Again, most of the evening was spent just enjoying our dinner and the company – so no copious notes

Lunch with an Animal Specialist at Sanaa, Animal Kingdom Lodge

This experience took place on September 27, 2014

This has become a favorite of ours – typically the Animal Specialists are enthusiastic about their work at Animal Kingdom Lodge and the food is very good (a wonderful way to get a great sampling of the food at Sanaa). Since Nevie is now a

Culinary Demonstration with Emily Ellyn – Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2014

This Epcot Food & Wine Experience took place on Wednesday, October 22, 2014

This was Walter’s first ever Culinary Demonstration. We expected beef but instead discovered that we were going to get chocolate! Again, the protein was changed but this time it morphed into sweets – wow.

Our Celebrity Chef was

UPDATE – South Korea – Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2014

We revisited the South Korea Marketplace with Walter on October 22, 2014

We stopped in for more Kimchi Dogs with Spicy Mustard Sauce. These were even better than the ones we had a while back (here); more slaw and more mustard sauce. These are very tasty!

The Kimchi Dog is paired

Spice Road Table for more lamb!

This dining experience took place on September 26, 2014

If you remember Nevie’s lamb story (here), you’ll understand why Nick tried to think of all the places we could easily get lamb during her visit (other than the marketplace booths during Food & Wine, we hit those up early in the visit). Of
