The ABC lifestyle TV show “The Chew” is returning to Walt Disney World Resort this fall to to tape five shows from the 21st Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. “The Chew” shows features co-hosts Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and Daphne Oz and will record at Epcot Oct. 5-7 against the park’s iconic Spaceship Earth backdrop. The episodes will later air on the ABC Television Network Oct. 10-14, 2016, at 1 p.m. EST, 12 pm PT (check local listings).
Last years taping showcased lots of exciting events from the Epcot Food and Wine Festival but also segments highlighting food and beverages from “around the world” of Walt Disney World Resort and its four theme parks and Disney Springs.
Fans of “The Chew” and the annual Epcot festival can savor bites inspired by the popular talk show at The Chew Collective in the Next Eats festival area of Future World. Three delicious dishes – Grilled Beef Skewer with Romaine, Apricots and Feta Cheese; Ricotta and Zucchini Ravioli with Rustic Tomato Sauce and Peanut Butter and White Chocolate Mousse with a Caramel Drizzle – will be the stars of the menu. Festival guests also can sip this year’s exclusive new Festival Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon at The Chew Collective. Last year marked a historic first when festival marketplaces expanded into the park’s Future World area.
Epcot vice president Melissa Valiquette said this year’s return of “The Chew” promises plenty of “foodie fun” for festival guests. “We’re delighted that ‘The Chew’ will return this fall to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival,” Valiquette said. “Our festival fans are also fans of ‘The Chew,’ and we welcome this powerhouse of a daytime show that dishes up foodie fun with its own unique brand of culinary magic to our ever-evolving festival.”
At the Festival Center, guests can watch screenings of “The Chew” show highlights, cooking and entertaining tips, and same-day episodes of “The Chew” Monday through Friday at 1 p.m. Instructions on how to obtain show taping tickets will be announced at a later date.
