The Epcot International Festival of the Arts is in full swing for its second year, celebrating the visual, performing and culinary arts from around the globe. As a designer and a foodie, this festival is my FAVORITE here at Epcot. Not only are the dishes absolutely delicious, they’re beautifully crafted too! I recently met up with my friend, Sous Chef Julia Thrash, to get a personal tour of everything that’s being cooked up at this year’s festival. Julia is one of many talented chefs who are the masterminds behind the menus at Epcot’s annual festivals. Each year, months of research and planning go into perfecting the Food Studios and the wonderful dishes they offer. While walking around the World Showcase, Julia gave me some amazing insight into the inspiration behind some of this year’s dishes and even let me taste a few of them myself!

If you’re looking for beautiful, delicious cuisine, then come on out to the Epcot International Festival of the Arts before it ends on February 19th.
