THE CHEW – “The Chew” celebrates the 20th Epcot International Food and Wine Festival from Walt Disney World, airing October 12-16, 2015.

Recently I shared some of the upcoming highlights from the 2016 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.  Now I’m happy to share that for the second consecutive year the popular co-hosts of ABC’s “The Chew” are returning to Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.  Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and Daphne will be taping a week’s worth of shows October 5-7 at the Walt Disney World Resort as they explore the festival and beyond.  (The taped shows will air on ABC October 10-14 at 1 p.m. EST, 12 p.m. PT — check local listings).  They will share the highlights and recipes from the Food and Wine Festival, as well as the food from around Walt Disney World.

“We had a fantastic time filming our show last year at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival and sharing the magic with Park guests and our home viewers. It’s the perfect pairing!” said Mark Schneider, executive producer of “The Chew” “We look forward to returning for even more fun and great food with our fans and celebrity guests. For us, it’s a terrific way to kick off our new season.”

During the entirety of the Food and Wine Festival you will be able to visit The Chew Collective marketplace in the Next Eats area of future world.  There they will have dishes that are inspired by the popular talk show.  Check them out, they sound delicious…

  • Grilled Beef Skewer with Romaine, Apricots and Feta Cheese
  • Ricotta and Zucchini Ravioli with Rustic Tomato Sauce
  • Peanut Butter and White Chocolate Mousse with a Caramel Drizzle
  • also the festival exclusive Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon will served there

Mmmm, is it Food and Wine time yet?? 😉

And at the Festival Center, guests can watch screenings of “The Chew” show highlights, cooking and entertaining tips, and same-day episodes of “The Chew” Monday through Friday at 1 p.m.  If you would like ticket to the taping shows they will be announced at a later date.  Keep checking throughout the summer for more details.

Also if you want to prepare yourself for what to eat during your visit to this year’s Food and Wine Festival, you can watch re-broadcasts of last year’s episodes of “The Chew”, the week of July 25th.  Go ahead and do your home work!! 🙂 Check the network’s summer programming lineup for your area.

I can’t wait for this year’s 2016 Food and Wine Festival and to see the hosts of “The Chew” share their insight with us.  It’s going to be a great Fall.  Keep tuned with Ziggy Knows Disney for more upcoming info on the 2016 Food and Wine Festival, I’ll be sharing lots of yummy treats with you!
