We are only 3-days into the amazing Epcot International Festival of the Holidays at Walt Disney World and already we can’t stop thinking about the 15 amazing Holiday Kitchens open this season. If you plan on visiting Epcot in the weeks ahead you’ll definitely want to save some room in your budgets and your tummies to sample some of the festive treats on offer. To give you just a taste of the amazing dishes you’ll find there. Here’s our list of 7 Holiday Kitchen treats worth trying.
1. Cookies, Cookies and More Cookies – The Cookie Nook – (pictured) Nothing says the holidays like Christmas cookies fresh out of the oven. In that respect, this festive food booth definitely delivers. We recommend you start with the Gingersnap Cookie which is topped with cream cheese icing and cranberry jam. Or for those with heartier appetites give the warm apple fritter a try. Its topped with cinnamon ice cream and caramel sauce.
2. Seared Pork Tenderloin – American Holiday Table – Back by popular demand, this hearty Christmas dinner with the trimmings is perfect for those looking for some home-cooking. The pork tenderloin comes with a green bean casserole, roasted sweet potato wedges and a Champagne demi-glace.
3. Chocolate Apple Shake – American Holiday Table – If we had to pick a favorite Disney food-trend of 2017, it would definitely be the boozy milkshake and this one has to be one of our favorites. The shake features Twinings Winter Spice Tea and butterscotch schnapps.
4. Stollen Holiday Fruit Cake – Bavaria Holiday Kitchen – Whether you are a fruitcake lover or hater, you have to admit, that it is definitely a Christmastime staple and we find the one being served up at Bavaria Holiday Kitchen to be quite lovely. These delectable slices bring the fruity and nutty taste of the season without being overpowering.
5. Maple Bûche de Noël – Yukon Holiday Kitchen – Thank you Canada for once again bringing the culinary goodness to Epcot. One of the highlights of the festival food booths this season has to be this delicious treat. Its comprised of a maple mousse rolled in gingerbread chiffon cake and topped with a cranberry sauce and a pecan crumble.
6. Three Kings Bread – Feast of the Three Kings – This is another treat at the Holiday Kitchens that we are happy to see back for another year. These tasty king cakes, are sweet, buttery and have just the right mix of holiday spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. They’re topped with candied fruit and a sweet icing making it the perfect accompaniment to your coffee or hot cocoa.
7. Strawberry Nigori Sake Cocktail – Hokkaido Holiday Kitchen – Toast the Holiday Season with this Japanese cocktail. Its made up of semi-sweet unfiltered sake and pureed strawberry and it will have you feeling the warm fuzzies in no time.
