Cover Photo : What is an Interactive Demo at Food & Wine?
"Mix It, Make It, Celebrate It!" is an interactive demo series that is part of the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.
In 2017, it looks like at least some of the Interactive Demos will take place at 12:15pm... giving you plenty of time to walk off that Bourbon buzz.
Everyone that we spoke to seemed to really enjoy the Mix It, Make It, Celebrate It series of interactive demos.
This setup was for one of the beverage-based Mix It, Make It, Celebrate It! demos. Each guest got this very same place setting, which contained everything you needed to mix your own cocktail.
The very knowledgeable Pam Smith officiates as Iron Chef Morimoto breaks down a fish at his Interactive Sushi Demo. Guests had the opportunity to make their own sushi roll.
All the components that you would need to make your very own food item were pre-measured and in little sealed cups at each and every place setting.
At one of the beverage-based interactive demos, you will learn and use all of the components at your setting to make a finished cocktail. (The "before" picture is on the left, and the "after" picture is on the right!)
The beverage-based Mix It, Make It Interactive Demos usually also featured a tapas sized plate of food with a sauce or glaze that also contained the spirit that you were mixing your cocktail with!
So many things! This was the place setting at Pam Smith's very own P.S.Flavor! Mix It, Make It presentation, featuring her own blend of spices.
Step one, step two, step three, step four! Getting to build your own Orange Mascarpone Crêpe is so much fun and educational. What a great way to introduce little chefs to the world of culinary!
There is a lot of set up work that has to be done at any of the Mix It, Make It, Celebrate It demos... there really is a lot of organizational work that goes into each presentation.
Iron Chef Morimoto was extremely entertaining and this is one demo I could highly recommend if you see his name on the list for upcoming demos. As you may have guessed, Morimoto's "Make It Sushi" event was very popular, and sold out within minutes of the initial booking period.
The "Mix It, Make It, Celebrate It" Interactive Demo series is a fun, new way to experience culinary and beverage offerings at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. (From left to right, Nicole Ramsland and Pam Smith, RDN featuring P.S. Flavor! Spice Blends.)
