The Trowel and Trellis kitchen is a new booth at Flower & Garden this year. You'll find it in Showcase Plaza near Disney Traders – and you'll smell it (in the best possible way) long before you get there. Also worth mentioning – it's hosted by ImpossibleTM Foods – whose burgers I've raved about on more than one occasion…so suffice to say I was excited to try this place out.
They offer three food items – two savory and one sweet – along with a long list of drinks.
- Grilled Street Corn on the Cob with Savory Garlic Spread (gluten free, vegetarian, kid friendly) ($5.50)
I feel like this corn is quickly becoming one of the iconic food items at the Flower and Garden Festival this year. And for good reason. My kids love it. I love it. My husband loves it. I don't know anyone who doesn't love it. It's as fresh as it gets, just off the grill, and smothered in buttery garlic. You need it in your life.
- Farmhouse Meatball with Lentil Bread, Spinach, Marinated Vegetables, Creamy Herb Dressing (vegetarian) ($5.50)
This is delicious. You'd never know it was vegetarian. The lentil bread is chewy and warm, you'd never know the meatball wasn't meat, and it's loaded with crisp spinach and veggies and then hit lightly with creamy herb dressing. Just a really nice, light option that's packed with flavor.
- Chocolate Pudding Terrarium with Avocado Cream, Matcha Crumb, Pomegranate and Baby Herbs (gluten free, vegetarian) ($5.00)
This thing is gorgeous but don't be misled by the “chocolate pudding” description. I think it's delicious but it's not overly sweet at all. The chocolate is potent and covered in chia seeds (famous for their energy-giving powers) that add a really cool texture. Definitely a cool thing to try – and it's presented beautifully. Just don't go in expecting it to taste like a pudding cup.
- Bloomin’ Blueberry Lemon and Ginger Tea featuring Twinings of London® with Tito’s Handmade Vodka served in a Mason Jar ($15.00)
How pretty is this?? This is such a light and delicious drink. The $15 price tag is a bit insane and I do wish that the mason jar was glass instead of plastic, but I suppose I can understand the liability concerns in passing out glass alcohol containers for people to walk with at Epcot. And it's one of the rare serving pieces that's come home from a Festival with me, even if it is plastic.
In any case, this thing is huge by Festival standards and the Tito's vodka, which is one of my faves, makes for a heck of a smooth (and photogenic) drink. It will definitely be in my top 5 for the season.
I've already been more than once and I'm sure I'll be back. But for now?
