For six weekends, the sister resorts have food and wine events aimed to complement EPCOT’s International Food & Wine Festival.
Event highlights include A Taste of Waldorf Astoria, where tasting menus and wine pairings from the master chefs of many Waldorf Astoria brand hotels are served at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando’s Bull & Bear. The multi-course degustation menus include items from the Rome Cavalieri menu Oct. 5 and 6, Trianon Palace Versailles Oct. 12 and 13, and the Waldorf Astoria Berlin Oct. 19 and 20. Chef Stefan Kauth, executive chef of The Roosevelt New Orleans, is visiting the kitchens of Bull & Bear to personally prepare an exclusive tasting menu Oct. 26 and 27.
The Waldorf Astoria Orlando’s Aquamarine outdoor poolside bar and grill is featuring a capirihnas and mojito bar, cigar roller, flamenco dancers, tapas, and New World Spanish wines on Saturdays. Peacock Alley is hosting an Amedei of Tuscany chocolate and champagne tasting from Perrier-Jouët on Friday and Saturday nights.
At the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, located less than one mile from EPCOT, La Luce by Donna Scala is unveiling a new tasting menu and wine pairing featuring chef Scala’s newest recipes each weekend from Oct. 5 to Nov. 3. Scala will be on-site Oct. 12 to 13, to preside over the meal.
Both hotels are offering packages that include a $50 resort/dining credit.
