Epcot Center & World Showcase Culinary festival


On Thursday day and Saturday night, Mike and I spent some time in Epcot. We had lunch at Les Chefs de France with Chef Remy (from Ratatouille), who was very amusing, though he didn't seem to like that we had cats at home.


The food there was delicious, I had baked Macaroni, a cheese plate with an assortment of amazing cheeses, creme brulee, and a refreshing cocktail of pear vodka and apple juice. Some of the food was split with Mike, but I was still absolutely stuffed afterward!

Mike and I had to, of course, make the most awful faces when Spaceship Earth was taking our pictures for our journey into the future. Aren't we just so attractive?


Apparently in the future, we do a lot of surfing and working from our neato futuristic house. Also, our car drives itself.

After the stomach-settling ride, we went on Mission Space. Man, those G-forces are crazy on that ride. It's quite dizzying. Gary Sinise stars in the video and I always want him to say "I'm not an astronaut, but I've played one in several movies."




For our Saturday night feasting, we went to the Culinary festival in the World Showcase. I tried out mushroom soup from the Vienna booth, Lamington Cake from Australia, mini capellini from Italy, and rounded it off with some Lefse in Norway (not as good as Grandma's, though). Everything is served in small portions so you can walk from booth to booth and get the cross-cultural culinary experience. There was also much wine and beer to be had. It was great fun and everything I tried was surprisingly delicious. They also had a lot of vegetarian options, which was just AWESOME.

I'm a pretty big fan of Epcot, all in all, a rollicking good time.


  1. I've never been to Epoct Center before, it looks fun though! So was Remy animatronic? It's cute that he's set up to interact.
    Lol, nice faces ;)

  2. Meg - yeah, he's a tiny animatronic guy that gets wheeled around on a cart and controlled by a "waiter." He's very cool.

  3. Mmmm, Lefse. ;) I never could quite get used to it, no matter how many times my mom told me it was "part of my heritage."

    One of the cool things about the World Expo that we went to in Germany was something similar - where they had booths with foods from different countries you could sample.

    Mmm, that pear vodka cocktail sounds like it was yummy too!


Comment nicely and with tolerance or be deleted!
