The booth offers three food items this year and several wine options. So…how do they measure up?
- Seared Scallops, Truffled Celery Root Purée, Brussels Sprouts, and Wild Mushrooms (DDP snack credit eligible) ($6.25)
This is again one of the big winners at Food & Wine. The scallops themselves are loaded with flavor and cooked perfectly. The brussels sprouts and wild mushrooms add great texture. And the choice to put it on (truffled!) celery root purée instead of something heavier like a mashed potato brings it all home. This will again be a repeat item at the Festival.
- Butternut Squash Ravioli with Brown Butter Vinaigrette, Parmesan Cheese, and Pumpkin Seeds (vegetarian, kid-approved, DDP snack credit eligible) ($4.50)
Disney has mastered the butternut squash ravioli – you’ll find it around property at places like 1900 Park Fare. But the Wine & Dine Studio at Food & Wine again takes it to an entirely new level with the addition of parmesan cheese and pumpkin seeds. At $4.50 this is a lovely little value.
- Trio of Artisan Cheese (V) – (vegetarian, DDP snack credit eligible) ($5.50) (also available with wine pairings for $11.25)
- Gorgonzola with Cow and Sheep’s Milk
- Artigiano Aged Balsamic & Cipolline Onion
This is some good cheese and accompaniments and, with the wine pairings, is a great value. I generally like this offering even more than the cheeses at the Cheese Studio, so we tend to grab it whenever we're otherwise here – especially since my older son never met a good cheese he didn't like. (Kvelling.)
I'll definitely be back to this booth for a number of reasons.
But until then?
