My wife is back from her second trip to the EPCOT Food & Wine festival. That’s two more than me, so I’m pretty jealous. She keeps gluten-free due to allergies, and while the regular Disney dining is very accommodating, every year at the festival is a bit of a challenge.
Last year some one provided a great list of which foods were Gluten-Free, so we tried to find that again this year. Alas, Disney was playing coy, and our mileage varied when we asked the festival managers.
We were finally able to get a couple cooperative chefs. Combine that with my wife’s detective work and here is the final list. Please remember to ask for a Chef at each booth so they are aware of your allergy needs.
Australia: Shrimp on the Barbie, Grilled Lamp Chop
Brazil: Seared Mahi Mahi (hold the sauce)
Argentina: Grilled Beef Skewer with Chimichurri Sauce (my wife’s favorite)
Caribbean: Ropa Vieja (hold the mango salsa)
South Korea: Lettuce Wrap with Roast Pork and Kimchi Slaw
Cheese: Cheese Plate
Germany: Goulash Soup
Hops & Barley: Linda Bean’s Lobster Claw Cuddler
Singapore: Beef Rendang
New Zealand: Seared Sea Scallop with Jumar-Red Curry
Portugal: Linguica Sausage, Calmari Salad
Ireland: Warm Choclate Lava Cake (is flourless)
Canada: Chicken Chipotle Sausage with Sweet Corn Polenta
It would be very nice if Disney would provide this list before the festival begins, instead of us having to compile it on our own.
