Poland – EPCOT Food and Wine Festival
During the Food & Wine Festival at EPCOT the Poland stand was one that I was excited to stop by. The offerings of Kielbasa & Potato Pierogi with Caramelized Onions & Sour Cream sounded great. I was not disappointed.
The Kiebasa had flavors that are not available in the normal supermarket and was a treat. The Potato with Caramelized Onions went very well with the Kiebasa and rounded out the flavors of Poland.
The other dish was Zapiekanki (Toasted Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions & Cheese Bread with House Made Ketchup) was not what I was expecting. I love mushrooms and thought this would be one of my favorites however the flavors did not go together with the Home-Made Ketchup and ended up tasting much like a pizza. Poland should stick to the sausage and stay clear of trying to reinvent the pizza.
The drink of choice at this stop was Temptation Zinfandel. This was a red zinfandel that I had not encountered before and not being a fan of red wines was not that impressed by the bold oak flavors. To me a zinfandel should be a fruity wine and not a bold spicy red.
