Happy Monday. I have SO many posts lined up that I’ve wanted to post but I have no time to edit the photos, edit the posts themselves, etc. Ugh, I feel like a horrible blogger but I’m trying my best. I’m trying to come up with a better schedule so I can put more time into blogging because it is and always will be a passion of mine.
Since I recently got back from Disney World I thought today would be a good day to do a little recap of this years Epcot International Festival of the Arts. (I guess the other posts I have planned will be pushed back yet again).
Here’s how I would rate the food at the 2022 Epcot International Festival of the Arts:
Before I get into the ratings, I have to talk about this years festival passport. It might be one of my favorite Epcot festival passports to due. It’s super simple but cute and I’m a huge Figment fan!
Speaking of Figment, by the time I visited the Festival of the Arts all of the Figment popcorn buckets were sadly sold out. (And I visited within the first week of the festival!). BUT as of today, February 14th, the Figment buckets re back!
The one positive thing about the figment popcorn bucket being sold is was the fact there wasn’t a 7(?!) hour line at the Pop Eats booth.
I’m so glad I only had to wait 5 minutes for my grilled cheeses and tomato soup!
5/5 |Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese: Ionic, amazing, I haven’t been the same sense trying it. Seriously though it might sound like a simple snack but that tomato soup was EVERYTHING! I may or may not have had this at least four times throughout my stay at Disney World.
2/5 | Tomato Soup with Bacon, Apple, and Brie Grilled Cheese: I know I just raved about the tomato soup and grilled cheese BUT I wasn’t a huge fan of this version. I love brie so I assumed I’d love it but something about the apple and bacon just didn’t mesh well. But that might have to do with the fact that I hate bacon.
Oh France, you’ll always have a special place in my heart.
3/5 | Crème de Brie en Petit Pain: A warm creamy brie in a house-made bread bowl. If you’ve checked out some of my old Festival of the Arts posts you’d know this is one of my favorite dishes. However, this year it just didn’t hit the same The brie was kind of too thick and cold? It’s hard to describe but I definitely preferred it more at previous festivals.
3/5 | Croissant à la Truffe Noire d’Hiver: Black winter truffle croissant served warm. This dessert was new to the Festival of the Arts and honestly it was okay. It was good but nothing to write home about.
4/5 | Red Wine-braised Beef Short Rib: This delicious treat is also served with parsnip purée, broccolini, baby tomatoes, and aged balsamic. Another festival favorite, however, the potatoes were a little too sweet this time around.
Like 90% of the population, I am obsessed with Encanto so I was super excited to try out this themed booth!
3.5/5 | Spicy Ajiaco Soup: This soup consists of guajillo and árbol chili-spiced chicken, potato, avocado, corn, and crème fraîch. It was very spicy and very good!
3.5/5 | House-made Chorizo and Potato Empanada: Fun fact, I LOVE empanadas, especially steak ones! I am not the biggest of chorizo (I don’t like anything pork really) but this was actually very yummy! I think I liked this was much because I LOVE potatoes.
It’s not an Epcot festival without desserts!
4/5 | Vanilla Donut: This yummy doughnut is served with strawberry sugar, strawberry ice cream, fresh strawberries, and strawberry gele.
2.5/5 | Inside Out Donut: Vanilla donut with Bavarian cream. This donut was pretty looking but taste wise…it was a little too sweet for me. The donut was about 80% icing and I just don’t have a big sweet tooth so it was a much bit for me.
Another amazing Festival of the Arts for the books!
