Week Four - More Food and this time Wine

October 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Hello all!  Another week has gone by and the weather is beautiful. Theresa and I ventured back to Epcot for another afternoon at the "Food and Wine Festival"  This time we sampled food from Greece, Japan, Brazil, Canada and the good ole USA.

We really enjoyed sampling some of the wines and a beer flight on this visit.  I'm not much into micro brews and all, I'm pretty much a Bud Light/Coors Light/Carona drinker when it comes to beer.  This beer flight consisted of four beers.  Three of which I could barely stomach and a the fourth I actually liked.  We also sampled a couple of wines, the notable one being a Cabernet Franc from the Canada booth.  It's the first time I've tried a Cab Franc and probably the last, nuff said.

A friend asked me to further explain how the "Food and Wine" festival worked.  Basically they have booths representing different countries scattered around Epcot (Mostly in the "World Showcase").  Each booth will have three or four different food samplings you can purchase.  They also have a few different beverages with at least one "Recommended wine" that pairs with the signature dish.  It's basically like the "Taste of Chicago" with class(LOL).  

So it was another Epcot weekend, but we really enjoy that park and it's the most convenient to us.  We have to return to the festival one more time and we'll get our annual pass holder wine glasses.  Maybe next week.

My "photo of the Week" is one I took at Epcot earlier this year at Epcot's Moroccan Village.  It's part of my Flickr 365 day challenge, but never got posted to Facebook for some reason.  I use the option offered by Flickr to automatically post any new additions to "My Flickr 365 Day Challenge" album to Facebook, but it doesn't always work.

​The thing I really enjoy about Disney World (Epcot mostly) is there are so many little hidden spots tucked away in corners off-the-beaten-path.  As an annual pass holder, I have the opportunity to go to the parks and explore these little photographic nuggets.  The area in this photo is in the Moroccan village, but in the back of the alleyway.  I think most visitors venture into this area in search of the "Restaurant Marrakesh" which I didn't been know existed till I wandered back here.  Did you know about this place/restaurant?  Most folks like to wait till all other people are out of frame to get a good "people free" shot, but I sometimes like to have the human element in the photo.  It would have been nicer if the folks in this shot were wearing Moroccan style clothing, but we aren't in Morocco are we?!

Well thanks for visiting and till next week!!
