Flavors From Fire Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Flavors From Fire Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Year after year after year, we walk away loving the Flavors From Fire booth. And that remains the same in 2023.

Really, the entire menu isn’t terrible, but there are two dishes and one beverage we recommend over the others.

Those are: the Impossible Burger Slider, the Smoked Corned Beef with House-made Potato Chips, and the Four Virtues Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel.

While the corn beef and red wine are returning items, the Impossible slider is new to this particular stand. The plant-based burger was originally sold at the Earth Eats booth, which did not return to this year’s Food and Wine.

While it’s a bummer that the all plant-based Earth Eats marketplace is no more (at least for right now), we’re thankful the Impossible slider didn’t go anywhere, especially since it’s one of our favorites.

Photos & Reviews

The Impossible Burger Slider

A plant-based Impossible Burger slider on a sesame seed bun served topped with a wasabi cream and a spicy slaw.

Flavors From Fire Impossible Slider
  • Price: $6.00
  • Special Diets: Plant-based
  • Rating: 4.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Large for a slider. Delicious flavors. Nice spicy kick.
Heather: The only reason this isn’t a 5 is because the bun was a little dry. But otherwise? It’s good and spicy. Like me.
Felicia: This is really good for a plant-based option. Has a nice peppery flavor with an Asian flair. Would happily order it again.
Allyson: This is just as fantastic as past years. It does have a little spice, but so good. And the slaw is super tasty.

Smoked Corned Beef

Crispy potatoes topped with smoked corned beef, cheese curds, pickled onions, and beer cheese fondue.

Flavors From Fire Corned Beef
  • Price: $6.50
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Great portion and combo of textures, but so salty and kinda bland. Liked it better last year.
Heather: Can confirm that the cheese curds squeak in your teeth. Smokey. Warm. Creamy. All my favorite things. But not quite as good as last year. So I bumped it down.
Felicia: Absolutely loved this. The cheese sauce is delicious and goes well with the cheese curds. The corned beef is slightly smoky and delicious and the onions add a nice pickled flavor.

Chimichurri Marinated Skirt Steak Taco

A taco made with chimichurri marinated skirt steak, crushed avocado, grilled corn salsa, pickled red onions, queso fresco, and cilantro-lime cream.

Flavors From Fire Taco
  • Price: $6.50
  • Special Diets: Gluten-friendly
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Really this is a 3.5 – it would be a 4 if the meat was more tender and the tortilla was softer! But the meat has excellent flavor! I really like the smokey taste and I’m hopeful that after they’ve been open longer they’ll only improve.
Felicia: Surprisingly bland and an oddly cool temperature. Almost the only flavor is from the super dry corn tortilla. Disappointing.

Spiced Chocolate Tart

A spiced chocolate tart with a BBQ potato chip crust, salted whisky-caramel and smoked sea salt.

Flavors From Fire Chocolate
  • Price: $4.75
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 3.7/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: This would be a 5 if it wasn’t so hot…the heat kinda kills it but still so good.
Felicia: I loved this. It’s very rich and the consistency of chocolate frosting. It had a nice spice to it and the sea salt adds a little savory kick to it. Big fan.
Ally: Doesn’t really hold up well in the heat. Not overly sweet, but it’s just ok.

Saugatuck Brewing Company Bonfire Brown

A malty brown ale with a slight smokiness, brewed by Saugatuck Brewing Company in Douglas, MI.

Flavors From Fire Bonfire Beer
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.) / $9.50 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Fantastically flavored brown ale.
Heather: Very very good. Rich flavor. Good training wheel dark beer for people who aren’t fans of dark beer.
Felicia: Was hoping for more smokiness on this one, but it was a decent brown ale.
Allyson: I like how this is on the lighter side for a darker beer and has good flavor.

Four Virtues Bourbon Barrel Zinfandel

A full-bodied red wine by Rutherford Ranch Winery that has been aged in oak bourbon barrels and is from the Lodi region of California.

Flavors From Fire Zinfandel
  • Price: $6.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light, but slightly bitter taste.
Heather: I wish I liked reds more so I could write a better review. Sorry for failing you.
Felicia: This is served chilled and is a refreshing smooth red, if you like red wines (which I do).
Allyson: I don’t like wine and this definitely isn’t my favorite. I wouldn’t try this again.

Swine Brine featuring Jim Beam Bourbon

A cocktail made with a mix of Jim Beam Bourbon, apple cider, lemon juice, and dijon mustard then topped with a pig wing.

Flavors From Fire Swine Brine
  • Price: $11.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Don’t even like bourbon usually, but loved this so much. Decent portion, fantastic flavors.
Heather: Do you like Jim Beam? You’ll probably like this. Comes with a hunk of meat with a BONE floating in it so that might have impacted how I felt about this drink.
Felicia: The pig wing floating in the cocktail is off putting, but the drink itself is okay. It’s tart but it’s made with mustard and the mustard flavor is very strong this year.
