Epcot International Food & Wine Festival - Rockin' Burger Block Party

The 21st Epcot International Food and Wine Festival starts this week - September 14th! The festival brings many fun events to Epcot! From cooking demos and live music to delicious food and wine, there are so many reasons for you to experience this year's Festival at Walt Disney World® Resort! Today, we're taking a closer look at one of those tempting opportunities – the Rockin’ Burger Block Party.  If you love burgers - this event is for you!
When you think of burgers, they usually start with beef and a bun – but the rules are different at this event. You might find the beginnings of a traditional sandwich, and then the chefs take the flavor to a whole new level with patties like an Indian-inspired Malai Chicken Mushroom Burger or a pork slider with aji amarillo chile slaw and avocado on brioche.
These are just two of seven impressive burgers at the first party on September 30th at World ShowPlace.  The other two Rockin' Burger Parties will take place on October 14th and November 11th where all-new creations will be featured, with music and plenty of libations adding to the fun. You can even vote for their favorite burger!
The September 30 event features celebrity Chef Maneet Chauhan with that Malai Chicken Mushroom Burger. Here’s some other tasty competitors:

  • STK – their famous “lil BRGs” with Wagyu beef, special sauce and a sesame seed bun
  • Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant – a beer-battered burger topped with garlic aioli, tomato chutney and greens.
  • Disney’s Beaches and Cream – the Sunrise Burger with chorizo, candied Canadian bacon, avocado spread topped with a quail egg and sriracha mayo on an English muffin.
  • D-Luxe Burger – the classic Southern style: a beef burger topped with a friend green tomato, pimento cheese and Applewood-smoked bacon on a soft, sweet Parkerhouse roll.
  • Chef Alex Seidel, a James Beard finalist (with a Colorado blended lamb burger) plus six other local restaurant competitors will participate on October 14. And November 11 stars celebrity Chef Jehangir Mehta (doing a mushroom-blended “Graffiti” burger) along with six others.

All three parties take place from 7-9 p.m. and the cost is $99-$199 plus tax and gratuity.
You can even reserve VIP Nosh Pit seating ($199) if you want a guaranteed table (plus you’ll receive a 15-minute start, a premium bar and a specialty cocktail).  Epcot admission is not included. Book today at Epcotfoodfestival.com or call 407-939-3378.
