In the midst of the ever-popular Epcot Food and Wine Festival, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel will host its fourth annual Food & Wine Classic, Oct. 18 – 19. The event presents opportunities to savor the flavor of culinary innovation during a two-night outdoor evening festival.
Numerous food and wine stations, education seminars, and live entertainment make it a uniquely enticing event.
This year’s dishes include a short rib Oscar, marrying beef, Maryland blue crab, asparagus and hollandaise, a Chinese-inspired vegetarian bao – a handcrafted convergence of bacon, black-eyed pea puree and maple – and raspberry s’mores and a milk chocolate mousse dome with a center of caramel cream and hazelnut dacquoise sponge cake.
New to the educational lineup is a pasta-making seminar hosted by hotel executive chef Robert Ciborowski. Guests will learn to make pasta dough from scratch and assist with the creation of specialty pastas. The wine education tract will feature a new Italian wine class, where guests will learn the history of Italian wine and its influence on culture and cuisine. Returning beverage seminars include modern mixology, sake, beer, wine-blending, champagne, Riesling and Spanish wines. The seminars are led by the hotel’s certified culinary and beverage experts.
Guests also can meet and greet with celebrity chef Todd English, world-renowned restaurateur who has gained national acclaim through his line of restaurants and cookbooks, and his countless other food-related enterprises. His concept, Todd English’s bluezoo, is a AAA four-diamond restaurant and one of the signature restaurants of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel.
