<<A Taste of the
2014 Food and Wine Marketplaces with Hammer>>
Cast: Christine (aka Hammer,
INTERCOT Dining Staff) and Cheryl (Christine’s Sister)
We broke up our sampling of
the Food and Wine marketplaces over 2 days. We split all food
offerings between the 2 of us, but got our own glasses of wine. We
did skip a few kiosks where the offerings had not changed from last
year, since we had one less person this year to split food
offerings, so we did not go to Ireland, Belgium and Poland. We also
do not like kimchi, so we skip South Korea. We mostly had champagne
drinks for beverages, and they were served in full sized flutes,
unlike the wine samples which were 1 to 2 ounce pours. Though we did
not have any, beer was served in 6 ounce pours.
We enjoyed almost all of the
food offerings this year. Here are the top 3 standout stars! Seared
Sea Scallop with spinach-cheddar gratin and crispy bacon was our
favorite offering from this year’s festival. Beautiful diver scallop
cooked perfectly and worked well with the gratin and bacon. Then
again, very few things aren’t improved by the inclusion of bacon!
Another favorite was the gratin de crozet de savoie: wheat pasta
gratin with mushrooms and Gruyere cheese. . Great flavor and the
mushrooms were fresh mushrooms, not canned. Seared Rainbow Trout
with Bacon, Frisee and Maple Minus 8 Vinaigrette from Canada was
also a favorite. Really liked how the different flavors blend
On the other end, we found the
Spicy Shrimp roll from Morocco and the Griddled cheese in Greece to
be quite greasy this year, though it tasted fine. The lobster
alfredo was the biggest disappointment of the festival. We should
know by now that the lobster is never good, no matter how they
prepare it. It was rubbery and flavorless.
Once again, we enjoyed our
yearly trip to the Festival and cannot wait for next year!
Guests at the Magic Kingdom can
now shop in a store with wall-to-wall creeps, and hot & cold running
chills. Memento Mori, the new retail location replacing Yankee
Trader, officially opened on October 6, 2014. Besides a large array
of Haunted Mansion merchandise, the retail location offers Guests
the option to make a "changing portrait" of themselves. The
holographic image morphs from the Guest's "corruptible mortal state"
to a more ghoulish demeanor. The store has undergone a small
refurbishment on the interior adding themed details in some of the
woodwork, wallpaper, and other fixtures. Cast have advised Guests to
look for "spirits to materialize" in a mirror prominently displayed
in the store.
