This nearly perfect dish is a returning favorite. The smoked corned beef is flavorful, tender, and has a great slathering of sauce on it. There’s plenty of chips to help pick-up the meat and fondue, all three together a match made in heaven. It’s a must do item, even if it’s a return. Honestly, everything at Flavors from Fire is worth doing. It is a bit difficult to eat on the chip, even with a fork, and this dish was slightly messy as well.

This item replaced one of our favorites from the Flavors from Fire booth when it debuted, but that’s okay, because it’s just as amazing. There’s an underlying spiciness to the skirt steak that’s rather intense for an EPCOT festival, but it’s everything we absolutely adore. The coleslaw on top helps to cut back the spice and the aïoli rounds out the flavor profile. The smoked corn cake below helps hold everything together, making this an absolute winner.

The pie itself was light and fluffy, exactly what it should be. It wasn’t overly flavorful. The marshmallow was fluffy and had a fun texture. It was caramelized on the outside. The graham cracker was a standard out-of-the-box graham. The chocolate sauce was like hot fudge. It was rich, decadent, and very chocolaty. Overall, this was a tasty dessert with a nice balance of flavors. You should definitely have something to drink with you though, you’ll need it!

*NEW* Saugatuck Brewing Company Bonfire Beer, Douglas, MI (5.5% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 o.z., $9.00 for 12 o.z.

Saugatuck Brewing Company describes their beer, also known as Bonfire Brown Ale: “This classic American Brown Ale is a perfect example of tradition; from it’s malty, rich body to the touch of light smoke in the finish.”

*NEW* Four Virtues Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel, California ($25/bottle) – $6.00

Rutherford Ranch describes this wine as “intense and full-bodied with red fruit, blackberry and spice,” having “soft, subtle tannins and a lingering smoky finish.”

Swine Brine featuring Jim Beam Bourbon ($15/bottle) – $11.00

Swine Brine featuring Jim Beam Bourbon – $11.00

In 2017, this surprisingly good drink was made with Evan Williams bourbon. In recent years, they’ve switched to the more well-known Jim Beam bourbon, but no matter – it’s still good! The Swine Brine is definitely one of the most unique cocktails offered this year at the festival, and many were surprised at just how good (read: weird) this ended up being. It’s a combination of apple juice, lemon juice, bourbon, and mustard, which sounds pretty terrible. Needless to say, everyone in our group grimaced before they tried it, but they ended up enjoying it more than expected. WARNING: It may not be for everyone. Also, don’t dip the pork in.
