Roasted Irish Sausage with Colcannon Potatoes and Onion Gravy – $5.50
Do you love Jimmy Dean breakfast sausages? Well then we have a treat for you! Spend over five dollars and get TWO of those amazing breakfast sausages with a bunch of onions to push to the side. Yeah, it’s par for the course for a standard Epcot Festival dish and we wish they didn’t bring this one back for 2019. Anyway, the sausage is well cooked to give a plump bite each time and the potatoes help soak-up the onion gravy. Overall it’s just pretty mediocre and certainly not worth the price tag.
Warm Irish Cheddar Cheese and Stout Dip with Irish Brown Bread (V) – $5.00
Yeah, that’s a cheese dip. A cheese dip mixed with a stout. It’s really unique and different, if you closed your eyes you wouldn’t be able to tell the color was different from a regular cheese dip. Our only real complaint here is that we need more bread. The last half of the cheese dip ends up being spooned out instead of soaked-up with bread. Just another piece would be excellent.
Warm Chocolate Pudding with Irish Cream Liqueur Custard – $4.25
Another festival staple, this year increasing cost by a quarter. It’s an incredibly creamy custard on top of a warm molten chocolate pudding that rivals Chili’s molten lava cake. We would rather have this one though, even if it is small. You get a few bites of one of the reasons why the Food & Wine Festival returns year after year. Recommended.
Bunratty Winery describes their meade: “Bunratty Mead is a traditional wine, produced from an ancient Irish recipe of pure honey, fruit of the vine and natural herbs. It’s a medium sweet wine, with a wide taste appeal, and suitable for all important occasions.”
Guinness Bailey’s Shake – $11.00
Bailey’s will run you about $18/bottle at your local liquor store, but good luck being able to mix a Guinness and Bailey’s shake at home like this. Fortunately Epcot takes the mixing pain away and provides the end result: a smooth, rich, and creamy shake that’s simply to die for. There’s a hint of the Bailey’s cream liquor and an underlying flavor of the Guinness beer. A few chocolate flakes on top help bring this mixture together into one perfect drink. Plus you get a souvenir plastic cup to take home (somehow a rarity at this event), what’s not to love?
