Pastoral Palate Menu, Prices, & Review (2024 Festival of the Arts)

Pastoral Palate Menu, Prices, & Review (2024 Festival of the Arts)

Near many artists’ booths at the 2024 Festival of the Arts is the Pastoral Palate food studio in the Germany pavilion. You can make a whole meal from this studio, as the beef short rib and black forest cake are tasty.

Germany tends to always have a solid booth and this year is no different. In fact, it was one of our top Food Studios of the entire 2024 Festival of the Arts!

All items at Pastoral Palate

If we had to pick our favorite, we’d definitely have to say the Rosé flight. It is not only a fun twist on Rosé, but it is delicious, too!

Read on for more information:


  • Location: In the Germany pavilion
  • Nearby booths: Refreshment Outpost, L’Arte di Mangiare

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Tender enough to cut with a plastic fork. Incredible flavors and portion. Would get this as part of a meal.
Heather: The beef here is so much better than the Beef Wellington at that other booth! Delicious flavor – and so tender! Very large portion, too!
Felicia: LOVE THIS! Short rib is tender and delicious, parsnip is perfectly pureed and the balsamic glaze is delicious. Roasted tomatoes and broccolini to finish it out. Great meal.

  • Special Diets: Kid-friendly
  • Rating: 4.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Ohhhh, that’s good. Beautiful presentation, great size, combo of flavors is delicious and not too sweet.
Heather: A Black Forest cake that isn’t heavy?! And I don’t even LIKE cherries! This is a lovely compliment to the rose flight and would make the perfect dessert combo.
Felicia: Great chocolate and cherry flavor, but the texture is all fluff/mush. Needs some crunch or other textures but flavor is there.

  • Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Only thing I didn’t love at this booth. Kind of a bitter taste.
Heather: My least favorite of the “rosé” options here, but it is still lovely. Can a flavor blush? This feels like it is blushing.
Felicia: This is a dry rosé which I prefer. Nothing noteworthy or special, but I like it.
