The days I spent sampling the offerings was amazing along with alot of the normal park fun. Now going it solo was a mammoth tast on the tummy, but one that I had to try and manage...I did rather well.. Let's just say I got a passport stamp for at least one dish (if not two!) at each country kiosk! No mean feat! it did take a few days...
So where to start? First Day?
New Zealand - Seared Sea Scallop with Vegetable Slaw and Lemon OilWine - Villa Maria Private Bin Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
I was surprised by this stick of meat! The Pork was fairly tender but the dusting of farofa was different. Saw dust texture with hints of salt and spice. Farofa is widely used in Brazil and is made of a flour mixture with salt, spice and sometimes meat...it is used in many forms (see here)
Nothing better than a frozen alcohol treat to cool you down on a hot day!
The roast pork was a little dry and the kimchi slaw and a definite spicy kick to it!
Coming up....Part 2 of my first day of the Food and Wine Festival
