Following the royal coronation of Merida from Pixar’s “Brave” as the 11th Disney Princess, Walt Disney World has revealed that a taste of Scotland will be coming to Epcot later this year.
During the 18th Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, Sept. 27 – Nov. 11, 2013, Disney chefs will debut authentic tastes of Scotland at the 46-day festival.
Traditional flavors will pair with beers, meads and Scotch at the new Scotland Marketplace designed by Walt Disney Imagineering. Scottish officials were so impressed with the hit Disney film, “Brave” that they contacted festival planners about participating in this year’s festival.
Also returning this year is the Brazil Marketplace, but with a new menu following a one-year hiatus.
Hawai’i is back with its flavorful Kalua Pork Slider, and Terra, which debuted last year, returns with vegan favorite Trick’n Chicken Curry.
More than 25 ethnic and specialized marketplaces including Africa, Brazil and Florida Local will fill the World Showcase Promenade while Celebrity chefs like Warren Brown, Paula DaSilva, Gale Gand, Jamie Deen, Robert Irvine, Dean Max, Rock Harper, Jeff Henderson, Art Smith, Buddy Valastro, Allen Susser, “Cake Boy” Eric Lanlard, Duskie Estes and John Stewart, Donald Link, Bryan Voltaggio and Emily Ellyn will host special festival events and demonstrations.
