My phone is full of pictures I have taken of chocolate items I have eaten that have never made it onto this blog. I always intend to post them, but life happens and I forget. All I can ever do is apologize and promise to try in the future. And so…I am sorry, I will try to do better in the future.
Last week, Disney released the menus for this years EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. I was there last year (and for Flower and Garden this year and last), and of course I took pictures that never were posted, and by now I have forgotten most of what things tasted like. I should really take notes.
I will be at Food and Wine for a few days in October (I am going for my birthday weekend), so I thought I would share what chocolate items I am most excited for, and hopefully that will give me incentive to post them once I have had them.
The Chocolate Studio
Liquid Nitro Chocolate-Almond Truffle with Warm Whiskey-Caramel
Sweet Dark Chocolate Raspberry Tar with Whipped Cream
I had both of these last year, and I remember thinking I liked one more than the other, but for the life of me I cannot remember which. For punishment, I must try them both again. Poor me.
Flavors from Fire
Another one I tried last year, and while I cannot remember all of the items I tried, but this one was unforgettable. I am hoping to acquire the recipe for this one, it is amazing.
Warm Chocolate Pudding with Irish Cream Liqueur
Again, I had this one last year, but I cannot remember it. Time to try it again.
The Chocolate Experience hosted by Ghirardelli
Ghirardelli Drinking Chocolate
I think this may have been there before, but I did not know. In Italy, when you order hot chocolate at a cafe, you basically receive a cup of hot melted chocolate and a packet of sugar. It was amazing. I am hoping this will be similar, but I have no idea what to expect.
Shimmering Sips Mimosa Bar
The item itself does not sound earth shattering, but the Pavilion is new, so I am keeping an eye on this one, at least until photos surface so that I can see what it looks like.
Croissant Donut with Chocolate and Marshmallows
I believe this item is new as well, that or it was not so advertised last yar. There is a Chocolate Hazelnut one as well, I might change my decision once I see pictures.
Here are a few items I am not so excited about.
Belgian Waffle with Warm Chocolate Ganache and Whipped Cream
I really want to be wowed by Belgium, but I remember this one just falling short. Too much waffle, not enough chocolate. I would really like to see Belgium do more with chocolate in the future, as the country is already so known for it.
Much like Belgium, too much baklava, not enough chocolate, but at least I do not think chocolate when I think of Morocco, so the offense is less here.
There are other non-Food and Wine items I am excited to try as well, on this trip or the next (I am going again in November) but perhaps I will make another post with those.
