In 2013, the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival introduced Outdoor Kitchens, where guests could enjoy fresh ingredients were the highlight. On its third year, the festival will feature a new Outdoor Kitchen – Botanas Botánico. It will be located between France and Morocco and will feature menu items, such as Cachapas with Farmer’s Cheese, a sweet yellow corn pancake, and Seafood Ceviche with shrimp, scallops and grouper with mango and avocado.
