8 Must-Try Treats at This Year’s EPCOT Flower And Garden Festival
If you’ve been following along with MickeyBlog, you’ll know that last week Disney unveiled the menus for the Outdoor Kitchens at this year’s Flower & Garden Festival at EPCOT! One of my favorite ways to get excited about my first Festival visit is to highlight several must-try treats to sample during my day. Not only does this give me a bit of an action plan during my visit but it also means I don’t miss out on things I’d hoped to try but forgotten about on the day!
With that in mind, here are 8 of my must-try favorites for 2021! If you like what you see, you may want to add these to your list too!
NEW! Avocado Toast- EPCOT Sunshine Griddle
You’ll find Sunshine Griddle at Future World East where you can order up this culinary work of art! This dish elevates your morning Avocado Toast to the next level with Marinated Toybox Tomatoes and Fresh Goat Cheese on a Toasted Ciabatta
NEW! Beignet Caramélisé, Fourré Crème Vanille, Glacé au Caramel Fleur de Sel- Fleur de Lys (France)
Noone does dessert quite like the French and sweet treat is a perfect example. New for 2021, dish translates into Caramelized Beignet filled wtih Vanilla Cream. The creation is then glazed with a Caramel Fleur de Sel. Talk about decadent!
NEW Off The “Beet”en Path – EPCOT Farmers Feast (World Showplace)
One of my favorite things about the Outdoor Kitchens at EPCOT is the opportunity to eat outside of your comfort zone! This is a dish that I may not normally order but its just so pretty it has to be tried! This vibrant entree is made up of Profiteroles with Red Beet Mousse, Golden Beet Pastry Cream, Whipped Goat Cheese Cream, and Candied Walnuts. You’ll find it at Farmers Feast in the World Showplace!
Popsicle Trio:- Refreshment Port
The thing I love about Orlando is that it can be HOT even in March. With that in mind it’s always good to have some cool and refreshing treats lined up! Look no further than this colorful trio of popsicles at the Refreshment Port in Showcase Plaza. The flavors are Honeydew, Raspberry-Mint and Coconut-Lime. Best of all, these treats are gluten & wheat friendly!
NEW! Tupelo Honey and Sweet Corn Spoon Bread – The Honey Bee-stro Hosted by National Honey Board
I LOVE honey which is why The Honey Bee-stro will be one of my first EPCOT Flower & Garden stops. Here’s you’ll find an array of delicious treats at this location in World Showplace hosted by the National Honey Board. The one dish that caught my eye for 2021 is this Spoon Bread with Jalapenos, Bacon and a house-made Whipped Honey Butter – YUM!
Mini Funnel Cake – American Adventure
It wouldn’t be a visit to EPCOT without a funnel cake from the American Adventure pavilion. This year’s Flower & Garden creation features a Mini Funnel Cake topped with Lemon Cheesecake Ice Cream, Blueberries and Powdered Sugar.
Soy-Glazed Pork Shank – Hanami
Head over to the Japan Pavilion for this savory treat! It features a Soy-glazed Pork Shank with Truffle Mashed Potatoes, Crispy Lotus Flower, Garlic Chips and Green Onion!
Bubbly Brew – Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea
When you’re at the Flower & Garden Festival DO NOT overlock the Joffrey’s Coffee Kiosks! Every EPCOT fest you’ll find that Joffrey’s offers a whole menu brimming with exclusive treats to try. Case in point is the Bubbly Brew which you’ll find at their coffee kiosk in the American Adventure. Recently, we here at MickeyBlog wrote about Coffee Coke being all the rage. If you’re curious about trying it out for yourself then order up this libation which is made of Jameson Cold Brew Whiskey, Coffee and a splash of Coke!
