Favorite to least favorite...

Hits
Dark Chocolate Mousse with Chili and Salted Caramel –The first one I had was amazing…the second was good, but not great.
Crispy Shrimp Taco with Chipotle Lime Mayo and Cabbage Served on a Flour Tortilla- Perfect!
Kalua Pork Slider with Sweet and Sour Dole Pineapple Chutney and Spicy Mayonnaise-Amazing, the meat was moist and flavorful, complimented well by the chutney and Mayonnaise
White Corn Arepa with Mangalitsa Pork Rilette and Zellwood Sweet Corn Salad-Exceeded expectations
Warm Chocolate Lava Cake with Baileys Irish Cream Ganache-I don’t like cake, so I never wasted the money before. I am kicking myself.
Mongolian Beef in a Steamed Bun-Simple, yet tasty.
Beef Rendang with Jasmine Rice-Wow, what a kick!
Lettuce Wrap with Roast Pork and Kimchi Slaw-Exceeded expectations…different flavor profile for me.
Yogurt Panna Cotta with Orange Cake, Raspberries and Pomegranate-Expected this to be gross…but I really liked it…tasted like a dreamsicle.

Middle of the road…Glad I got, but don’t necessarily need to eat next year!
Taco de Filete with Cascabel Pepper Sauce and Scallions Served on a Flour Tortilla
Seared Filet of Beef with Smashed Sweet Potatoes and Braai Sauce-Not that special, though the meat was well prepared.
Griddled Greek Cheese with Pistachios and Honey-Like the flavor combo…but really hard to due right at a festival. Would get a restaurant where I could get it fresh.
Lamb Meatball with Spicy Tomato Chutney-Loved the chutney, the lamb was fine.
Ropa Vieja (braised beef) with Cilantro Rice-Pretty boring, tastes like the taco seasoning I use at home.
Pork Potstickers –Good, but I can get it anywhere.
Salsiccia e "Papacelli" Napoletani (Sweet Italian Sausage with Peppers and Onions on Ciaibatta Bread)-Sausage was almost cold.
Ravioli Di Formaggia all Emiliana (Baked Cheese Ravioli with Creamy Beef Bolognese Sauce, Parmesean Cheese, and Melted Mozzarella)-Just okay.
Karaage Hand Roll (Crispy Chicken Breast with Sushi Rice and Spicy Mayonnaise-Just Okay

Blek!
Lemon Custard Verrine with Blueberry Compote-I normally like lemon and blueberry…but this was too sour.
Spinach and Paneer Cheese Pocket-The filling had a nice spice but the bread/pocket was not good.
Sukiyaki Beef Pan (Marinated Thinly Sliced Rib Eye with Sauteed Onions and Teriyaki Sauce Served in a Bun)-a mini hot dog bun with fatty beef. Ick.
Pumpkin Mousse with Craisins and Orange Sauce-Orange juice and pumpkin do not go together in my opinion.

My favorite was the mahi mahi with spicy soy-based sauce at Singapore, the one I will never get again is the South Korea mung bean and shrimp pancake.

Let me preface by saying that Food and Wine has lost its charm for me, I had more disappointments than hits! We weren't planning to go but were given a free hotel room so with AP's there we were 2 week-ends ago! My son (16) and I, both foodies, shared these dishes.

Hits:
France - Escargot, tasty, tender and fun in their little edible bowls, My son loved them!
France - Coq au Vin, flavorful but not outstanding.
France - Chocolate Creme Brulee - Yum!
Canada - Filet w/ mushrooms, cooked medium to a little rare. Fabulous!
China - Seasoned beef in a moist bun!
Mexico - White Corn Arepa with Mangalitsa Pork Rilettes. Loved it
Korea - ? Lettuce Wrap with Roast Pork and Kimchi Slaw, I love kimchi.

Not a hit but not a miss category:
New Zealand - Lamb Meatball w/ onion and tomatoes in a pastry cup. The meatball fantastic, moist, terrific flavor. Too much sauce & the pastry was sodden and nasty!
Canada - Cheddar Cheese Soup - Flavor good, needed to cook longer the veg. were still crispy!
Italy - Cheese Ravioli, overcooked. ( In all fairness, I was stuffed at this point, should have passed!)

Misses:
Greece- Spanakopita, filling bland, bottom,soggy, uncooked. Frankly the frozen ones at Costco are better!
Greece- Greek Salad, nice flavor but really limp greens.
Morocco - Mergues in a pita pocket! Had great difficulty finding the 1" piece of mergues in all of that green pepper and onion goo . These should be grilled to showcase their flavor, not steamed and served in a damp pita pocket.
Australia - Lamb Chop, gristly & overcooked! Very Disappointed!
New Zealand - Scallops, the smell alone drove me away! All I could do to wait for my meatball!

As far as drinks, I can't drink when it's hot and early in the day, so fizzy water from France and Italy and a coke from Morocco!

It had been several years since I attended Food and Wine, now I won't miss it when I can't go!

Definitely a good thing to miss. While it didn't make my bottom 3, it was pretty bad. The fondue itself was way overpowering and the bread it was served with was truly awful.

Yeah - I was really shocked at how bad it actually was - almost cold and a curdled consistency - think this must just be hard to do right in a festival type setting.

I didn't get to go this year, but the only really bad thing that I had last year was the cheese fondue.

This year: Very loud, bad language (the "f" bomb every tihird word, it seemed), puking in the bushes and extremely rude comments directed at passing guests.

I don't mind good times but some of what I saw could easily lead to physical altercations if directed at the wrong type of person. I'm not too happy to see that at Epcot.
