11 Things To Try At Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival

Food and Wine Festival opened at Disney California Adventure March 1st this year and will run until April 23rd. There are cooking demonstrations and live music, but the festival food booths are the real star of the show.

Berry Patch

Frushi on both coasts! Berry Patch’s Strawberry Coconut Frushi is totally different than Hanami’s Frushi at Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival. This one is a great gluten free option for anyone visiting DCA Food & Wine.

California Craft Brews

Pizza Egg Rolls definitely aren’t the cutest festival food but the crispy wrappers with gooey cheese and pepperoni is a heavenly, greasy mess with a side of marinara and pesto.

Citrus Grove

Meyer Lemon Macaron and Meyer Lemon Mule at Citrus Grove have been long time fan favorites, and for good reason. The mule is super refreshing and definitely one of the best drinks of the festival.

Cluck-a-Doodle-Moo has tons of hearty snacks this year. Salt & Vinegar Parmesan Wings sound weird but they’ve been super popular. They’ve got a great tangy flavor and are an option for anyone who doesn’t like the heat of typical hot wings. Grilled Beef Tenderloin Slider is topped with pickled onions and chimichurri. Some people have said the beef was a little more cooked than they would have liked, but that’s not surprising with a festival booth. The slider is still really flavorful and worth a try.

Nuts About Cheese

Nuts About Cheese has cheese soup in a bread bowl and I really don’t think you need more information to know how good that is. The other great option is the Ham and Vella Jack Cheese Pinwheel. It’s got some really strong smoky flavors from the ham and it’s just so pretty with the pistachios on top.

Off the Cobb

Off the Cob has Esquites Sweet Corn Nuggets topped with huge pieces of bacon and crema that are legit so good you might have to go back 2-3 times.

Peppers Cali-Ente

Peppers Cali-Ente has Ghost Pepper Mac and Cheese and the heat really sneaks up on you. If spice isn’t your thing, check out the Creamy Mac and Cheese with Garlic Bread Crumbs at Garlic Kissed.
