Last year the The Cheese Studio, Hosted by Boursin Cheese was brand new and brought some really solid choices to Food and Wine especially the delicious Braised Beef “Stroganoff” and the exquisite Maple Bourbon Cheesecake. They’re back again in 2019 but are they stand-outs like last year??
Let’s find out in my Cheese Studio Review: 2019 Epcot Food and Wine Festival….
The Cheese Studio hosted by Boursin® Cheese Marketplace:
My favorite area of the Food and Wine Festival is Future World West and this stretch of marketplaces tucked into this corner. It’s found on the pathway leading from World Showcase to Future World West, right in between the Wine and Dine Studio and The Chocolate Studio:
This whole area was recently re-built to be wider and more accommodating to guests visiting the marketplaces here. Look at the beautiful eating area, complete with eating counters:
It’s especially nice in the evening when it’s all lit up:
Cheese and wine, the unbeatable combo!
The Cheese Studio Menu:
I’m happy that my two favorite items are back once again in 2019 and I can still indulge in my Braised Beef “Stroganoff” and Maple Bourbon Cheesecake. Both of these were awesome last year and I’m hoping for a similar result again.
There is also an interesting new food item, the Black Pepper Boursin® Soufflé with Fig Marmalade. One of my favorite combos is cheese and figs so I’m really excited to try this!
There is also a great number of wines to pair up with all the cheesy goodness here and the Sparkling Blueberry Wine is always a favorite!

Braised Beef Stroganoff with Tiny Egg Noodles ($5.50):
First we tried out the Beef Stroganoff. This is a holdover from last year, but one that we really loved so we weren’t upset it’s back again! It was exactly as good as I remember it.
The meat was super tender and you could cut it with a fork. I also love the creamy sauce they put over the top. That worked especially well together with the tiny egg noodles which soaked up the sauce.
If you’ve had German spaetzle before then you have a good idea of how these taste. I noticed that these even had a little kick to them which we loved! The sour cream dollop was a great idea too and made everything rich and creamy!
The portion size was huge once again and it’s still a good value and a filling option. Get this now!
Black Pepper Boursin® Soufflé with Fig Marmalade ($5.00):
Maple Bourbon Boursin Cheesecake ($4.50):
While I really liked the first two options at The Cheese Studio, the Maple Bourbon Boursin Cheesecake was by far the highlight of the menu for me! This thing is do light and creamy and just melts in your mouth, no need to even chew!
It was like a flavor explosion in your mouth with the combo of cheese and maple. It had just the right balance between sweet, but not too sweet.
The only slight improvement they could make would be to put in a harder crust underneath, like a graham cracker crust or something, but I’m splitting hairs here.
Besides that, I don’t think they could have improved on this dessert at all and I’m going to keep going back here over and over again for it, and you should too!
Florida Orange Groves Winery Sparkling Blueberry Wine ($10.00):
Of course when you are eating the Cheesecake you also need something good to wash it down, and the Sparkling Blueberry Wine is just that! It is a bit expensive, but the blueberry accents worked incredibly well with the cheesecake and every bite and sip I just kept saying to myself: “Wow!”
This was probably my favorite sparkling wine at Food and Wine this year and a must-try when you come!
Booth Summary and Grade:
Everything we had at The Cheese Studio this year was awesome as usual, especially the Maple Bourbon Boursin Cheesecake which made our list of the Must-Try NEW Items from Food and Wine. Its score was sky-high just like last year, and it’s a must-stop marketplace at Food and Wine where you can be sure of ordering anything and not being disappointed!
If you have to get just one thing:
