L’Art de la Cuisine Francaise Menu, Prices, & Review (2024 Festival of the Arts)

The food booths in France often have long lines at every Epcot festival. L’Art de la Cuisine Francaise food studio is no exception. While other food studios have either a sweet or savory focus, this one has both. You can grab warm brie in a house-made bread bowl and pair it with a frozen martini to indulge in while people watching. Don’t mind if we do.

All items from L'Art de la Cuisine Francaise booth

While we did NOT enjoy the salmon here, the cake and brie were delicious, and both the Frozen French Martini, Charles Lafitte Brut Rosè were a hit!

If you are interested in stopping here, we recommend rope dropping it (get in line about 10:30-10:45 am) OR just be prepared for it to take a little while. Maybe even grab yourself a drink from somewhere nearby and sip on that while you wait.

When it comes to our reviews and ratings, we thought it would be helpful if you had a better understanding of our personal preferences (what we like and don’t like), along with if there are any dietary restrictions.

Here’s a breakdown of not only who is doing the reviews, but a little more information about what each of us likes and doesn’t like food and drink-wise.

Shannon (Founder)

  • Likes: Almost everything
  • Dislikes: Beers that taste “stinky,” anything too salty
  • Dietary Restrictions: None

Heather (Editor)

  • Likes: Strong flavors, anything made out of potatoes, white wines, all beers (especially stouts and wheat beers), doesn’t mind sweet (plain fruit is NOT a dessert. Ever.)
  • Dislikes: Things that are too spicy, anything with a bone still in it, cocktails with too much whiskey or tequila (thanks to having too much fun in college), some red wines, most IPAs

Crème de Brie en Petit Pain

Warm Creamy Brie in a House-Made Bread Bowl.

  • Price: $9.95
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Yum yum yum. Felt a bit like eating a cream-filled donut, but with delicious cheese inside.
Heather: I’m at the part of my Festival of the Arts journey where a bowl of pure cheese sounds like a good idea. Too bad I’m lactose intolerant because in about 30 minutes I’m gonna regret this decision. (If you love cheese and bread, you’ll like this! If you need more flavor, skip it.)
Felicia: This tastes perfectly pleasant. But it’s a tiny bread bowl with some soft cheese in it for TEN DOLLARS. And you will likely wait 20 minutes. No, thank you.

Saumon Fumé Mousse et Aspic, Blini et Fromage de Chevre

Salmon Mousse, Smoked Salmon, Dill and Flaxseed Biscuit (served cold).

  • Price: $7.95
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 2.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Fairly good but please note the “served cold” for this item. Was very cold in our case, but great flavors.
Heather: I really wanted to love the salmon – but this is so cold that it hurt my teeth!
Felicia: This had good-ish flavor but is still fishy and was frozen. Like, so so cold. And the texture was weird. Dreaded trying the salmon and my dread was founded.

Vol-au-Vent de Saumon et Epinards, Sauce Chardonnay

Puff Pastry with Salmon and Spinach and a Chardonnay-Shallot Sauce (served warm).

  • Price: $7.95
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 2.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Salmon was cold but supposed to be hot. Would be a much better dish without the salmon completely.
Heather: LIES. This was not warm – and puff pastry with a creamy sauce and salmon served cold is not my jam.
Felicia: This I think has good flavor, but it’s supposed to be warm and was cool and is slightly fishy. I just can’t like it.

Moelleux aux Noisettes, Croustillant Noisettes, Coulis Framboise et Mangue

Molten Valrhona Chocolate Cake, Hazelnut Crunch and Mango-Raspberry Coulis.

  • Price: $9.25
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 4.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Beautiful presentation and great combo of flavors. Not too sweet.
Heather: Delicious-love that it isn’t overly sweet and that it is WARM. Delicious. Yum. More, please.
Felicia: If you want a dessert that is not pure sugar, this is it! Delicious hazelnut flavor, light chocolate, and perfect amount of fruit. It is not a sugar bomb at all. Which I love. It’s beautiful and delicious and I could actually eat the whole thing.

Frozen French Martini

Grey Goose Vodka, Vodka, Chambord Liqueur, Pineapple, Orange and Grape Juices with Lemon-Lime Foam.

  • Price: $15.25
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: France pavilion at Epcot is pretty known for their frozen martinis, and this didn’t disappoint. Foam might surprise you if you aren’t expecting it.
Heather: Very cute drink – just incredibly sweet.
Felicia: This is delightful. Fruity, cold, and refreshing. Can’t taste the alcohol. Not worth the cost for me, but it’s iconic.

Elderflower Liqueur Cocktail

St. Germain Liqueur, Sparkling Wine and Mint.

  • Price: $13.25
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Syrupy sweet. Likes the mint but not the sweetness.
Heather: Not bad – just expensive. I couldn’t taste the mint but I feel very fancy holding the glass. The elderflower is a nice touch.
Felicia: Way too sweet and overpriced. Tastes like sparkling apple or grape juice I used to drink on NYE as a kid.

Charles Lafite, Brut Rosé Prestige, Méthode Traditionnel Champenoise

French Rosé Sparkling Wine.

  • Price: $9.75
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Dry and delicious. Very light.
Heather: Not inexpensive but it makes me feel rich to hold it and sip because the glass is cute.
Felicia: Simple and delicious dry sparkling rose in a cute glass. I like it. Not a bad price either for the size.

Pinot Noir J. de Villebois

A red wine with cherry and raspberry aromas.

  • Price: $12.75
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light red would pair well with any of the foods at this booth but it isn’t special at all.
Heather: Freaking delicious. A lovely red without being pretentious. What does that mean? IDK. But I like this one.
Felicia: 5 for flavor but 2 for price. So sticking to a 4. Smooth and refreshing Pinot. Not dry, not sweet and pairs well with the items here.
