This was cooked to a nice medium temperature. The red wine demi-glace was tasty and helped keep the beef from drying out. We didn’t get or see the prosciutto on the plate. Overall, it was a yummy dish.

Pan-Seared Scallop with Chorizo, Roasted Red Pepper Coulis and a Parmesan Crisp – $7.00

If there’s one thing Disney chefs do really well every festival, it’s scallops. Food & Wine has given us a really amazing scallop, and Flower & Garden also graced us with a great take on the seafood. Festival of the Arts is no exception, expect a scallop that isn’t chewy and done perfectly. Absolutely recommended.

Artist Palette Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookie – $5.50

REVIEW: "Decadent Delights" Food Studio - Epcot International Festival of the Arts 2017
Artist Palette Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookie – $5.50

I was thoroughly surprised by how good this cookie was, but also the time that went into making it is impressive. When we got the cookie, the “paint puddles” were not all dripping down the cookie, but carefully placed by a chef at the booth upon ordering. Every item at this festival requires some time to prepare for perfect presentation, and even this jumbo chocolate chip cookie is no exception. If you are in the mood for a chocolate chip cookie, this will hit the spot.

Sipping Chocolate Flight: White, Milk and Dark – $8.25

Sipping Chocolate Flight: White, Milk and Dark – $

This trio of drinking chocolate is unbelievably rich in flavor and so much so that it felt like we were drinking chocolate syrup out of the bottle. While I have enjoyed versions of these drinks from Amorette’s Patisserie and Ghirardelli, I didn’t think that these were nearly as good. The portion sizes are large enough to share between 2-3 people (simply because I can’t imagine that anyone could possibly have more than a few sips of such a thick and rich chocolate flavor).

Saugatuck Brewing Co. Neapolitan Milk Stout, Douglas, MI (6% ABV) – $4.50 for 6 o.z., $8.50 for 12 o.z.

Saugatuck Brewing Co. describes this beer as “a creamy Milk Stout with all the brilliant flavors of Neapolitan Ice Cream in one glass. Taste the rich flavors of chocolate, vanilla and strawberry in this unique beer.”

Lexington Brewing Company Kentucky Vanilla Barrel Cream Ale, Lexington, KY (5.5% ABV) – $4.50 for 6 o.z., $8.50 for 12 o.z.

Lexington Brewing Company describes: “We took a cold-conditioned cream ale, brewed with a hint of flaked corn and bourbon vanilla beans, and aged it in freshly decanted bourbon barrels for at least six weeks.”

Lindemans Framboise Lambic, Belgium (2.5% ABV) – $4.50 for 6 o.z., $8.50 for 12 o.z.

Lindemans describes their beer: “Magnificent aroma, delicate palate of raspberries with undertones of fruity acidity; elegant, sparkling clean taste, with inviting raspberry supported by lambic complexity. Deep reddish-purple color with pink head.”

Âme du Vin Côtes de Provence Rosé, Côtes de Provence, France ($17/bottle) – $6.00

From Âme du Vin: “Expressive notes of fresh apricot, citrus and jasmine flower delight the senses, yielding an exceptional rosé with balance and length.”

*NEW* Writer’s Block Pinot Noir, Lake County, CA ($15/bottle) – $7.00

Steele Wines offers these tasting notes: “The oak is light and the tannins soft, this wine shows with aromas and flavors of dark cherries, ripe red raspberry, finishing with notes of brown sugar.”

Symphony in Chocolate Flight: Mozart Cream Liqueurs paired with Sipping Chocolates – $13.00

One of the more interesting new offerings are these hot, alcoholic sipping chocolates. Despite its heavy liquor taste, the white chocolate seems to be the one that works the best. The others just felt very heavy and with no reward in flavor. While Festival of the Arts runs in January and February, we get some warm days in Orlando at this time, and the first day of the festival was just that. A hot, heavy chocolate drink like this isn’t what you want when its above 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
