Taste of Epcot International Festival of the Arts has delighted Disney Parks guests with the Epcot chefs’ culinary creativity. From bold flavors to vibrant colors, the culinary arts are on full display. While the Colorful Walk of Cuisine entices guests with its special completion treat, the must have desserts at this Epcot festival might have you eating desserts all day long.
As the fifth year of this Epcot food festival, the Disney culinary team has pushed the creativity level with all the dishes on the menu. While there are a few classic dishes that have returned, like the Deconstructed Strawberry Cheesecake, many new desserts (and dishes) are celebrated this year.
Since International Festival of the Arts celebrates the culinary arts, these desserts push both the visual and flavors in each bite. While some desserts might almost be too pretty to eat, one bite will make you happy that you put a fork in that work of art.
Here are FoodSided’s picks for the must have desserts from Taste of Epcot International Festival of the Arts.
Mouskoutchou: Mosaic Canteen
The bright orange dessert might have you thinking a citrus filled delight, but the bold color holds a different flavor story. The orange cake is topped with a rich chocolate and cinnamon mousse. Just like a mosaic, the combination of flavors and textures makes for a successful dessert.
Taco de Chocolate: El Artista Hambriento
While many people head to Mexico for margaritas, the new dessert will make all ages asking for a change to their taco Tuesday. The candy taco shell is filled with Mexican Chocolate Mousse and topped with tropical fruit. The hint of spice from the chile makes this dish a must try.
Stone Garden: Goshiki
With this Epcot dessert, everyone is encouraged to play with your food. In some ways, this stone garden will bring a sweet zen to guests. All the components come separately so that you can create your own garden. Remember to take a picture because you will want to eat all the chocolate rocks.
Pistachio Cake: The Painter’s Palate
This Epcot dessert shows how each element of a dessert needs to work on its own as well as work with the other flavors on the plate. The plate invites you to build flavors and try combinations. It even tricks the eye with those cherries.
Passion Fruit Mousse: Vibrante and Vivido Food Studio
Part of the new food marketplace, this dessert is a brightly colored delight. The dragon fruit jam in contrast to the passion fruit mousse is delicious. Even if you don’t often choose tropical fruits, this dessert will help you to expand your palate.
These desserts are just a few of the many delicious food offerings at Taste of Epcot International Festival of the Arts. The event runs till February 22. Theme park admission and reservations are required. All guests must follow Disney Parks health and safety regulations.
