It’s a holly, jolly holiday season at the Disney Parks and Resorts! The time of year where traditions are celebrated and shared with others. One of the best places to learn about other cultures and traditions is at Epcot in Walt Disney World.
Epcot is world famous for their various festivals available during different times of the year, such as the International Festival of the Arts, International Flower and Garden Festival, International Food and Wine Festival, and the Festival of the Holidays. Each with unique themes, inspired food and drink, and seasonal offerings for guests of all ages.
One of the best things about these festivals is the food! Guests get the chance to try foods inspired by nations, cultures, and traditions from around the world.
L’Chaim! Holiday Kitchen is inspired by the Hebrew phrase “L’Chaim” which means “To Life!” usually used in reference to major celebrations such as engagements, birth announcements, and other special events in someones life. L’Chaim!’s Menu is also inspired by the celebration of Hanukkah, a Jewish holiday.
The smaller food and beverage pop up locations, during the festivals, have sample sized foods and usually have 4-8 different food and drink offerings depending on the location. L’Chaim! has 7 food and beverages to chose from. Take a look at these tasty treats!
- Pastrami on Rye
- Potato Knish
- Chicken and Matzo Ball Soup
- Black and White Cookie
- Egg Cream
- Brooklyn Brewery Brooklyn Lager
- Blue Cosmo Cocktail
The menu sounds so delicious we had to go try it for ourselves. Take a closer look at the Pastrami on Rye.
A generous layer of Pastrami spread with Deli Mustard, between two pieces of perfectly spiraled rye bread and topped with a house-made pickle slice. Although this is sample sized, it packs a flavorful punch! After chowing down on this decadent sandwich we needed to satisfy our sweet tooth.
The Black and White Cookie hit the spot. With its glossy finish and surprising thickness we couldn’t wait sink our teeth into this sweet treat. Before we knew it, it was all gone!
We can not wait to try all the other special food and beverage offerings at the 2018 Epcot Festival of the Holidays before they are gone. Stay tuned to Chip & Co. for more sweets and treats!
L’Chaim! can be found between the France and Morocco Pavilions in the World Showcase at Epcot in Walt Disney World Resort this 2018 Holiday Season until December 30, 2018.
