2015 marks the 20th Anniversary of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, and this year’s cookbook is celebrating that fact, according to the Disney Parks Blog (be sure to visit the site for the recipe for this year’s Pepper Bacon Mac and Cheese from the Farm Fresh Marketplace!).
This year’s cookbook is going to be heftier than previous recipe collections, as it also includes 50 pages of history, photos, and memories from the past 20 years. Recipes date back to 1996 and feature dishes that represent the festival since then. Epcot Executive Chef Gregg Hannon is bringing back some classic dishes to the menus, including pao de queijo (Brazilian cheese puffs), apple strudel in Germany, spicy chicken sausage with polenta in Canada and the lobster roll at Hops & Barley, all of which will be featured in the book. You’ll also find Canadian Cheddar Cheese soup, Belgian waffles with berry compote, and bo ssam from South Korea.
The festival runs for 53 days, from September 25-November 16, and you can visit Epcotfoodfestival.com for more official information.
