2014 EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival: Primavera Kitchen (Italy Pavilion)

Buon pomeriggio! Good afternoon!

Today is the last installment of the food reviews for the 2014 Flower and Garden Festival. I have been dragging my feet on this one because Italian food has always- even before gluten and food allergies- been my least favorite food. Part of this may be because I dislike tomatoes. But I also find pasta generally very boring. If I ever do (did, past tense, before going gluten free) eat pasta, it merely served as a vehicle for butter and cheese. Heh.

However, all that said, I'm sure if you like Italian food, you would like Primavera Kitchen. For a gluten free option, you will find Caprese (mozzarella, roasted red peppers, olive oil). On the not gluten free menu, you will find Three Cheese Manicotti and Lemon Cheesecake. All of the offerings at Primavera Kitchen are vegetarian.

It was a rainy day, which made for good photos without people in them,
 but did cast an overcast hue in the photo.

I do not have a lot to say about Primavera Kitchen, since I did not eat anything there and cannot really get too excited about Italian food. I will whisper in your ear that there is a gelato stand across the way- the Italian coffee and gelato stand is there all of the time, not just during the food festivals. You know, in case you like pasta and tomatoes as much as I do ;)

This concludes the food portion of the 2014 Flower and Garden festival from the Healing Kitchen. I hope to post some of the garden highlights as well- I particularly liked the Urban Garden and the Water Wise Herbs & Vegetables displays. Lots of good ideas!
