Seared Scallops, Truffled Celery Root Purée, Brussels Sprouts and Wild Mushrooms featuring Melissa’s Produce – $6.00
Like we said in the Coastal Eats review: Disney knows scallops, and they know them well. These seared scallops are no exception to that rule. A few small scallops adorn the top of a truffled celery root puree with a generous portion of mushrooms on the side. It’s a rather large and filling dish, especially for the price. Both entrees at Wine & Dine are rather heavy and hearty, great in their own way but certainly not best for an ultra-hot day outside.
Butternut Squash Ravioli with Brown Butter Vinaigrette, Parmesan Cheese and Pumpkin Seeds (V) – $4.50
Two expertly prepared butternut squash ravioli adorn this plate. There’s a few pumpkin seeds and slices of Parmesan cheese on top. Over $2 a ravioli seems a bit hard to swallow, but these are really spectacular and taste like a true fall dish. We couldn’t think of another booth at Food & Wine that could pull these off this well. Maybe not the best option in 90+ degree weather, but moving towards late September/October, these will be wonderful.
Artist Palette of Wine and Cheese (Trio of Artisan Cheese paired with Trio of Wines) – $11.25
This is a festival favorite pairing two of the greatest things on earth: Cheese and Wine. More importantly wine. The cheese is masterfully paired with the wines, making each bite and sip compliment each other. There’s also great value to be found ordering the cheese and wine together because you get this really great tray to hold everything on. While nothing here is particularly exciting, your Instagram friends will love seeing your literal palette of booze and dairy.
