The Outdoor Kitchens are returning to the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival this year, and our friends at the Disney Food Blog have the inside scoop on the just-released menus.
The kiosks are similar to what guests find at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, serving small plates and delicious beverages.
New for 2014 is the Urban Farm Eats kiosk which will be serving produce grown in Epcot’s Living with the Land gardens in addition to farm-raised fish.
Menu items at this kiosk include Land-grown eggplant scallp with romesco sauce and spaghetti squash, ghost pepper dusted tilapia with winter melon slaw, pickled beet salad with goat cheese cream, and more. Guests can also sip on The Vegan Vine Chardonnay and The Vegan Bine Cabernet Sauvignon.
At the Festival Center guests will find Intermissions Café serving fruit and cheese plates, vegan trio, southwest chicken wrap, tuna salad with pita, caprese push pop, Martini Prosecco, and more.
Returning for a second year is the popular Pineapple Promenade kiosk where guests can snack on a Dole Whip topped with Myer’s Dark Rum or Parrot Bay Coconut Rum. Of course, guests can still get a “plain” Dole Whip in addition to other items such as sweet potato cinnamon waffle with Dole Whip.
The Buttercup Cottage kiosk will be serving items including field greens with Plant City strawberries, toasted almonds, and farmstead Stilton, pork and apple sausage roll, fresh baked lemon scones, along with beverages including several varieties of teas.
At the Fleur de Lys kiosk guests will find dishes inspired by French cuisine and fresh produce including Gnocchi Parisien à la Provençal, Confit de Canard, and Macaron à la Fleur d’ Oranger.
Other Outdoor Kitchens include: Taste of Marrakesh, Hanami (home of the Frushi in 2013), The Smokehouse Barbecue and Brew, Primavera Kitchen, Lotus House, Jardin de Fiestas, and Florida Fresh.
