Taste of Marrakesh at Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

Located across from the Morocco pavilion is Taste of Marrakesh. The sampling for Epcot Flower and Garden Festival were very different from the Food and Wine Festival. The highlight here is harissa, a popular condiment made with red peppers, garlic, lemons and olive oil; the red peppers are the key ingredient giving it a spicy kick.

The chicken drumette is season with harissa and lemon confit and served with chermoula and cucumber salad. The drumette was moist and not overcooked (which sometimes happens during the Food and Wine Festival with chicken). We loved the harissa and lemon confit! It added a freshness and light spice to the chicken. The slaw just added to the lightness of the dish.

The Banghrir is part of the TRYit! selections offered. We found this to be a really light dessert dish, which we had anticipate it being heavier. The orange zest as a wonderful fresh component to the pancake. We think kids will love this!
