#DisneyFamilia: Latin-Inspired Dishes at Epcot International Festival of the Arts

From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Sarah Domenech

During this year’s Epcot International Festival of the Arts, you will be able to enjoy amazing and beautiful Latin-inspired dishes.

You can start by visiting El Artista Hambriento Food Studio near the Mexico pavilion, where they are featuring Sopes de Barbacoa: braised barbacoa beef served on fried Guajillo corn shell with black beans, cotija cheese, Mexican cream and chives; an Agave Pork Belly: pork belly caramelized with Agave atop pumpkin seed pesto lentil salad. To drink, you can’t miss the Frida Banana Daiquiri: a Mexican handcrafted rum, banana puree and applejack (served frozen); a Diego Blackberry Margarita: 100% Agave tequila, blackberry purée, fresh jalapeño-lime juice served with black ant salt rim; and a Mexican White Sangria: white wine, fruit juices, and sweet cinnamon-infused tequila. Todo muy delicioso!

Next, go by Pop Eats, located in Showcase Plaza, and order the Shrimp Ceviche with lime-mint foam. We are sharing the recipe with you below so you can make it at casa!

Paintbrush Churros

Last but not least, time for dessert! Stop by the Refreshment Outpost, located in the African Outpost, where you can find these colorful Paintbrush Churros! These cinnamon-sugar churros are dipped in colorful white chocolate. Una obra de arte!
