Scott Joseph, the Orlando Sentinel’s Chow Hound columnist, reports on his visit to this year’s Epcot Food & Wine Festival.
I’ve sniped about the parsimonious portions in years past, hardly worth the prices that average around $3 per plate. But I have no complaints about value this time, especially when portion and quality have both improved.
And I’m sure many of my fellow park-goers enjoyed the supersized samples, too, seeing as how I had inadvertently chosen Fat Americans Day to visit Epcot. How else could you explain so many of them in one place?
Hey. I resemble that remark. But he’s right. F&W is a mecca for people who love food. So it makes sense that a larger proportion of the attendants are overweight. I tell myself that walking around the World Showcase is enough exercise to burn off all those calories gained through sampling and drinking (Boston Brewing’s Samuel Adams has some great beers at the park this year).
