New at the 2014 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is Urban Farm Eats

Urban Farm Eats focuses on aquaponics. Aquaponics is the combination of harvesting fish and hydroponically growing vegetables in a recirculating system. The fish waste supplies nutrients to the plants and the plants filter the water for the fish. Next to Urban Farm Eats was a display set up so you could see aquaponics in action.

Ghost Pepper-dusted Tilapia and The Vegan Vine Chardonnay at Urban Farm Eats

We just had to try the Ghost Pepper-dusted Tilapia! This was one of our favorites. The ghost pepper wasn’t too hot and the crunchy winter melon slaw was a nice contrast in flavor and texture. The Vegan Vine Chardonnay was much better than we expected and we found it to be a nice pairing with the spicy seasoning on the fish. If you haven’t tried it, you definitely should.
