The Greece stall has no griddled halloumi!
|The winning item on this menu - M.I.A.|
|Cheese Bankruptcy - Hoping Germany will bail them out with Munster. (Ha ha ha ha - I'm soooo topical!)|
French champagne lunch teaches me I will never truly understand champagne
|Nicolas Feuillatte - an institution since 1976 - the 3rd largest volume sales of french champagne. Taking champagne to Infinity and Beyond!|
|They poured 4 glasses during lunch and I still didn't understand the appeal. I'll leave this champagne to the expert wine critics.|
Ireland Stall abuses its cheese!
|What a winner of a menu - such promise in every line!|

Discovery of Chocolate discovers stodgy mousse
I sat there patiently watching the famous chef smash away and finally - we are served: Chocolate Mousse!
So it's your once a year food event - you are designing a brand new chocolate event to WOW the crowds - you're wondering "how can we rediscover chocolate? How can we bring a new chocolatey perspective for the anticipating, drooling hoards? I AM THE FAMOUS (in Orlando) CHEF! WHAT MASTERPIECE WILL I GIVE MY ADORING FANS?"
And somehow they decided on the single most unimaginative chocolate dessert possible - and wrecked it.
|Big screen overhead shot - he's following the recipe.|
|$70 for thick, cloying, heavy, airless stodge. Also had that dry skin surface as if it was laid out hours in advance - probably by the Irish Cheese people. Oh Look! Served with - Chocolate Truffle!! YAY!!|
Too bad - buy water!
|Driving? Did that lunch in the Tequila Cave ? .... or perhaps you've been drinking for 10 days in a row.|
If you didn't want wine, it was Dasani Water. Yes ... I know ... WINE festival....and YES - easier to store bottles than make mocktails. I just wonder if there was some foreign sensation yet to tickle my tastebuds. Instead I was standing at the bubbler.
Oh sigh..... fortuntely it was hard to come up with this list.
