A closer look at the Tartelette aux escargots

This year the Escargots Persillade en Brioche has been replaced by the tartelette aux escargots. It’s a tart filled with escargot, garlic, spinach and parmesan; then topped with crispy bacon crumbles. It sounds fantastic, but were were disappointed in this dish. The escargot dishes offered in the past were so much better. You hardly noticed the escargot… maybe that was the point. We do hope to see the return of the Escargots Persillade en Brioche.

Gratin de crozet de savoie at 2014 Epcot Food and Wine Festival

Gratin de crozet de savoie: Wheat pasta gratin with mushrooms and Gruyere cheese

The gratin de crozet de savoie is very cheesy

If you love cheese, you have to get the gratin de crozet de savoie. It’s very cheesy, as you can see. The mushrooms add a nice flavor to the dish without having a strong mushroom flavor. Even those who don’t like mushrooms, but love cheese, will enjoy this dish. We definitely could have had seconds of this dish!

Boeuf bourguignon at the 2014 Epcot Food and Wine Festival

The boeuf bourguignon has returned

We had to try the recommended pairing – boeuf bourguignon and Château Bonnet Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s a perfect pairing because you can really taste the flavor of the cabernet that the beef was cooked in. It’s the only item that is returning from previous years and if you’ve had it, you know why. The dish is delicious! The meat just falls apart.

Crème brûlée caramel fleur de sel - 2014 Epcot Food and Wine Festival

Crème brûlée caramel fleur de sel: Sea salt caramel crème brûlée topped with caramelized sugar

The crème brûlée caramel fleur de sel had a strong taste of caramel. It’s perfect for those who like crème brûlée and love caramel.
