The final countdown is on to the official kick off of the 2019 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
Today Walt Disney World hosted members of the media at a preview tasting for this iconic event.
A brand new vegan as-is dish will make its debut at the Africa Marketplace in between China and Germany in 2019.
Spicy Kenyan Vegan Githeri at the 2019 Epcot Food and Wine Festival
It’s called Spicy Kenyan Vegan Githeri.
Githeri is a traditional Kenyan dish of corn and beans.
This one stays true to its roots and is composed of white beans, pigeon peas, corn, curry rice pilaf and kachumbari slaw. The crispy slaw was a nice contrast to the hearty beans and rice it’s served atop. I can see myself ordering this dish on every visit to Epcot this festival season. It’s that good.
As with most Disney dishes labeled “spicy”, I didn’t find it to be too spicy.
Sadly, the delicious, vegan Spicy Ethiopian Red Lentil Stew is not returning to the festival this year.
The 2019 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival runs August 29th through November 23rd, 2019.
