REVIEW: Canada at Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2019
Welcome to a Marketplace Booth review for the 2019 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, taking place in the park from August 29 to November 23, 2019. This review will cover the Canada kiosk located in the Canada pavilion in the World Showcase. This is a one-stop shop for Canadian inspired food during the 2019 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. (Note that the menu prices do not include tax!)

Canadian Cheddar Cheese and Bacon Soup served with a Pretzel Roll – $5.25
I guess $5 is the breaking point of what people are willing to pay, but we would be very happy to pay more for a larger portion. As it stands, you get a half-full cup of the cheesiest and best soup ever created and a warm pretzel roll to dip. We can’t justify the price for the portion, even if it is continually one of the best-tasting items at Food & Wine. If you’ve never indulged, you should really give it a shot. You won’t regret it.
Le Cellier Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon with Truffle-Butter Sauce – $8.25
The ever-popular Le Cellier mushroom Beef Filet Mignon is available once again this year. There’s an amazing truffle-butter sauce on top with some mushrooms that make this dish absolutely stellar. There’s a major gamble when ordering the beef filet from Canada though: The cut. We’ve ordered it numerous times where you get not only a small portion but one with a lot of fat, whereas other times we get a large portion that’s virtually no fat whatsoever. It’s worth the gamble, especially if you have Disney Dining Plan snack credits to burn.
From Collective Arts Brewing: “Saint of Circumstance is our go-to, easy drinking, any occasion brew. We started by creating this tasty blonde ale using wheat for its lemony flavour and added Citra, Centennial and Amarillo hops. We took it to a whole new level by adding the zest of seasonal citrus. The result, a remarkably refreshing and balanced citrus blonde ale.”
Château Des Charmes on their Vidal Icewine: “Vidal is the most popular grape variety used to make Icewine. It has been used to make several different styles of Icewine but we like it best straight forward and intense. When you first put your nose into the glass your head is filled with thoughts of honey, apricot and flower gardens in full bloom. It coats your mouth and you feel it well after you swallow. It’s definitely sweet but the balancing acidity is telling of the care that went into its making.”
