This past weekend I attended the Food Blog Forum at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL. One of the highlights of the trip was the Taste of Disney lunch at Epcot Center. Entering the World Showplace, I felt I had tripped onto the set of Iron Chef. There was a blacklight blue glow to the room, and an abundance of unidentifiable space-age appliances. At the first station a chef was creating Pomegranate Ice using liquid hydrogen. I spotted foams, and schmears, and technical plating. There weren’t any drinks for me to blog about, but there was plenty of alcohol in the desserts…

Now somehow after an introduction on their healthy initiatives, I ended up eating SIX desserts. (Trust me, I’m not complaining). My favorite was the Peruvian Chocolate Cylinder with St. Germain Glaze (shown above). We’re talking chocolate mousse perfection. The spoon shown is holding a Chocolate Ravioli with Cognac - a soft sphere that bursts into an alcoholic delight. Another sweet highlight not shown is the Berry Gateau with Port Wine Foam. I’m not sure if it was the sugar or liquor, but I was feeling pretty giddy after lunch. 

If this sounds like heaven to you, start a food blog and I’ll see you there next year!
