"The Chew" shows from Epcot will showcase festival highlights as well as food and beverage
from 'around the world' of Walt Disney World Resort. From stellar dining experiences to immersive
dining that transports guests into cherished stories, "The Chew" will explore Disney Parks restaurants
that offer innovative, fun and healthful dining choices and share some of their favorites.
In addition, "The Chew" will be featured in two themed marketplaces located at the new Next
Eats area of Future World - the first time in the festival's history that new culinary experiences have
expanded into the Future World area of the park. At the new Sustainable Chew Marketplace, festivalgoers
can enjoy three delicious dishes inspired by "The Chew" co-hosts. From savory pork spareribs
with red wine and fennel with cheesy mascarpone grits and ricotta & zucchini ravioli with tomato sauce
to vanilla panna cotta with fresh figs and pistachio brittle, "The Chew" has something for everyone this
year. This eco-home-inspired marketplace will offer guests a chance to learn more about how food is
grown and the importance of food sustainability. Herbs and vegetables harvested from The Land
pavilion greenhouses at Epcot will flavor the marketplace dishes.
A second new Future World marketplace at Next Eats will feature the Chew Lab, where Disney
chefs are collaborating with "The Chew," to create a cutting-edge marketplace inspired by food-science
labs and the hottest culinary tech trends.
"The Chew" will continue to update viewers on additional festival plans throughout the
summer. Tune in weekdays 1:00 p.m., ET/12 Noon PT/CT and visit http://www.thechew.com.
