Can't Make it to Epcot Food & Wine Fest? Try Orlando Food & Wine Weekends

I love Epcot's Food & Wine Festival held every year from September 28 - November 12, but it is also great that two of Orlando's finest hotels are offering a delicious, alternative international event.

Orlando Food & Wine Weekends, held from September 28 through October 5 at Waldorf Astoria Orlando and Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, include several fun tasting events. "A Taste of Waldorf Astoria" on Friday and Saturday evenings, features tasting menus and wine pairings presented by visiting chefs from Waldorf Astoria restaurants around the world. For example, chefs will prepare menus from the Trianon Palace Versailles and the Waldorf Astoria Berlin. 

Bar du Chocolat treats
Meanwhile, the hotels' Bar du Chocolat and Champagne tasting event will feature a signature selection of chocolate treats from Waldorf Astoria's pastry chefs along with fine champagnes from Perrier-Jouet. The event is held every Friday and Saturday night. "Noche Latina" at the Waldorf Astoria is another fun event, with a mojito bar, cigar roller, flamenco dancers, tapas, and new world Spanish wines, all held by the Waldorf Astoria's pool on Saturday evenings.
