New Epcot Cookbook Coming This September

Great news from the Disney Parks Blog! During the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, a cookbook is released in tandem with the event. It features recipes from the Festival from the current year as well as favorites from the past, and even recipes from other special events. This year, however, they’re upping the ante and also sharing recipes from Holidays Around the World and the International Flower & Garden Festival! I’ve definitely said many times in the past how I’d LOVE a Flower & Garden cookbook, so this cookbook will definitely be making its way into my collection! :D

Here’s the official word from the Disney Parks Blog:

“You can’t buy a copy until September, but we wanted to give blog readers a sneak peek at the new Epcot cookbook that debuts just in time for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival (September 19-November 10). Instead of an annual cookbook just for that festival, the new book – even the title is still in the working stages – will feature, for the first time ever, recipes from Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, winter’s Holidays Around the World and the springtime Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.

Here’s a picture of Disney photographer Matt Stroshane and stylist Laurel Ainley as they shot the new food photos for the book. Long days and lots of prep create pretty dishes we hope will make you hungry.”

New Epcot Cookbook to Feature All Three Festivals

They also share photos from the cookbook as well as a recipe for Grilled Verlasso Salmon with Quinoa Salad and Arugula Chimichurri, which will be served at this year’s Food & Wine Festival.
