The Flower & Garden festival has kicked off. I was the very first guest at The Smokehouse at the American pavilion.

I had the pulled pork slider with cole slaw, followed by the smoked beef brisket with collard greens and jalapeño corn bread. Both were yummy

Is it too early in the day to be enjoying some German beer? I'm over at the Bauernmarket drinking some right now.

We stayed at BCV over Thanksgiving last year. We were on the first floor facing the pool. (our favorite location) It is no longer called the "quiet" pool I cant remember what they are calling it now.

Thanks for the photos from The Smokehouse marketplace. It looks like you get a good sized portion. Based on the link you posted to allears, prices are slightly higher than at last years F&W festival. Probably a sign of things to come for F&W this year.

I think this is a great addition to the Flower & Garden festival!

I stopped at the Florida Fresh booth and had the Shrimp and Stone Ground Grits with Andouille Sausage, Zellwood Corn, Tomatoes and Cilantro. It was good. Sorry for the poor picture, but I was more interested in eating it than taking a photo of it!

I then went to the Hanami booth at the Japan pavilion and had the
Chirashi Hanazushi - Grilled salmon, cooked shrimp, and crab stick served over a bed of fragrant ginger rice with Volcana and Dynamite sauce. It was OK, but not one of my favorites.

Here are some snapshots from the iPhone this morning.

I guess it proves that if you are talented, it doesn't really matter what camera you use!

So I just had coffee this morning to ensure I was hungry, as I planned on sampling several dishes today.

First up, I went to the Primavera Kitchen in Italy. I had the Asparagi con Aragosta all'Ortolana - Green asparagus and lobster with garden cocktail sauce. It was great, but pricey (at $7.75).

Then, I went over to the Bauernmarkt at Germany and had the Potato Pancake with house made Apple Sauce. I liked it.

I headed over to the Lotus House at China and had the Spring Pancake with Grilled Chicken and Green Apple. It was surprisingly good!

Even though it wasn't even Noon yet, I headed over to the Pineapple Promenade and ordered the Dole Whip with Siesta Key Spiced Rum. It was great.

Finally, to finish off a rather large lunch, I walked back to L'Orangerie at France and ordered the Verrine charlotte au péches - Carmelized peaches with rosemary and light vanilla cream. Yummy!

I have both of these on my list so thanks very much for the review and the photos. The peach dish in particular looks good!
