Watch Emily Ellyn at the Food & Wine Festival Cooking Demo on 10/22

Emily_Ellyn Food demo food and wine 2014

Visitors to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival know that there’s amazing food and drink to be had all around the World Showcase and at scores of Marketplace booths. Tasting (and drinking) your way around the globe costs from $3 – $8 per sample and a new culinary sensation is literally a few steps away from the one previous.

In the middle of all the International fun and food (actually at the entrance-way to the World Showcase), is the Festival Welcome Center.  While many guests are content to graze and sip their way through the world, some want to learn how to make some of those amazing dishes or learn new techniques they can take home. Culinary Demonstrations combine the two. Professional chefs demonstrate useful tips and tricks then provide samples of both their food and a perfectly paired beverage. Admission to Epcot is required and not included in these special demonstrations. Show times are 1 p.m., 3 p.m., and 5 p.m. and seats are $15 per guest (tax is included; alcohol will only be served to guests over 21).

Wednesday, October 22, Retro Rad Chef Emily Ellyn (Next Food Network Star finalist, Cupcake Wars winning team member, World Food Championships judge) takes the stage for the 3 and 5 slots. She’ll be making Chocolate Tea Cake Filled with Rose Water Frosting a.k.a. “I’m a Little Tea Cake”, which pairs perfectly with Banfi’s Rosa Regale. Also on “tap,” Zucchini Limoncello Curd and Ricotta “Whey” Tea Sandwiches with Avero Limoncello from Campania, Italy.

Join Emily Ellyn tomorrow, October 22 at either 3 or 5 p.m., for a retro rad cooking demonstration and sumptuous Italian (adult) beverages.
