While The Deconstructed Dish wasn’t our favorite food studio last year during the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, this year, the booth returns with several new items, and we’re excited to give them a second chance.

Deconstructed BLT: Crispy Pork Belly, Soft-Poached Egg, Brioche, Watercress Espuma and Tomato Jam – $7.00

The pork belly was overdone and dry. The egg yolk did help improve the disappointing texture of the pork, but it could only do so much. The tomato jam added a little bit of spice, but it wasn’t enough to save the BLT as the brioche, and watercress espuma added nothing to the generally weak and overdone dish.

*NEW* Deconstructed French Onion Soup: Beef Broth Ravioli, Gruyere Espuma, Onion Bread Pudding and Onion Textures – $6.50

 A strange idea that played out as the weakest dish here. The flavors are too intense, too rich, very pungent. It’s basically a giant ravioli in French onion soup broth.

*NEW* Deconstructed Key Lime Pie: Flexible Key Lime Curd, “Key Lime” Mousse, Graham Cracker Cake and Meringues – $6.25

This was top tier. A perfect balance of tart and sweetness, and the presentation allows you to distribute ingredients as you wish. The cake is moist and flavorful, a highlight for us. You get a nice serving size, and it also takes a great photo.

*NEW* Deconstructed Apple Pie à la Mode: Apple-Cinnamon Gelato, Cinnamon Apple Cider, Apple Pie Filling and Streusel (Non-Alcoholic) – $4.75

As you would guess, this has a prevalent apple flavor. The streusel nicely counters the sweetness with cinnamon. The bottom layer of filling doesn’t distribute when you sip, so grab a spoon to eat the cream and apple chunks. The cup is a nice touch.

*NEW* Short’s Brewing Bellaire Brown Ale, Bellaire, MI (7.0% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 oz., $9.00 for 12 oz.

From Short’s Brewing Company: “A glass of Bellaire Brown will greet you with big notes of chocolate, toasted malt, caramel, and coffee. It is equally full bodied and easy on the palate, dry and unfussy.”
