The Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is in less than a month. The 23rd festival will take place March 2 – May 30, 2016… 90 days, with two new Outdoor Kitchens.
Many of your favorite Outdoor Kitchens will be returning, but there are also two new ones – La Isla Fresca and Cider House. La Isla Fresca will feature authentic Caribbean dishes, such as Jamaican braised beef with pigeon peas and rice; spicy jerk chicken or grouper with mango salsa; and a Tres Leches cake with guava puree. To drink, try Red Stripe Jamaican-style lager, or frozen Simply Tropical juice drink (those 21 and up can order it with rum).
The Cider House will highlight the United Kingdom with dishes with a twist. Some of the offerings include a field greens salad (the greens are from The Land Pavilion), heirloom apples, Stilton cheese and dried blueberries; and a pear cider-brined shredded corned beef, braised cabbage and pears with Branston dressing. Guests will be able to pair their dishes with four hard, including a blueberry ciders made in Plant City, FL, plus Cigar City Tampa-Style Lager.
Other Outdoor Kitchens include Urban Farm Eats (with a new seared pork tenderloin), Pineapple Promenade, Fleur de Lys, Florida Fresh, Taste of Marrakesh, Hanami, THE SMOKEHOUSE: Barbecue and Brews, Primavera Kitchen, Lotus House, Bauernmarkt (with the addition of German currywurst sausage), and Jardin de Fiestas. That makes a total of 13 Outdoor Kitchens to enjoy as you stroll along the World Showcase promenade.
