One of the best parts of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is the fact that you get to see both celebrity chefs and some lesser known, but supremely talented chefs demonstrate their culinary skills while you sample and watch
Starting July 30th, 2015 everyone can call Disney Dining to reserve their place at the demonstration of their choosing. These low cost ($15 per person) seminars are the bargain of the Festival. The chefs spend close to 45 minutes talking to the audience, discussing the dish that they are preparing for all to taste, and answering questions.
Some of the better known chefs for 2015 are:
- Amanda Freitag @ 3:00pm and 5:00pm (seen on Food Network)
- Cat Cora @ 5:00pm on October 17th (former Iron Chef)
- Kevin Dundon @ 100pm on October 19th & October 20th (Raglan Road)
There are many other great chefs to check out. The opportunity to see a chef prepare a dish live and sample it, along with a wine pairing makes this a great way to experience the Festival. We saw Robert Irvine and Gale Gand during the 2014 Festival and certainly were not disappointed.
This is a great opportunity to taste unique dishes and interact with the chefs with a relatively small audience. The chefs appreciate the questions and audience comments regarding the dishes and preparation
