Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Waffles with Maple Syrup
Original Event Date, Saturday, October 11, 2014
Oh, I've heard it all before... "so and so has the best fried chicken in world"... so I'm always a little skeptical when someone makes that statement. In Chef Art Smith's case though... it's 100% true!!! His fried chicken really is on a different level, and easily an item that you will measure all other fried chickens against! No really... it's true!
Chef Smith brought his fried chicken dish to a 2014 Epcot Food & Wine Culinary Demo and it was simply amazing! Chef Art Smith isn't at the Food and Wine festival every year, so if you happen to see him on the schedule (and can get a ticket), I'm positive you won't be disappointed with whatever he creates!
It used to be... that you could only get Chef Art Smith's Chicken and Waffles at Table Fifty-Two in Chicago, but a version of this entree is kind of available at his Disney Springs location... Chef Art Smith's Homecomin'
... it's "Chef Art Smith's Chicken on House-Made Doughnuts"... I'm in, let's go!!!

- THE DISH
: Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Waffles with Maple Syrup
- WINE PAIRING : Noble Vines 446 Chardonnay, Noble Vines, Lodi and Monterey, California
- HOST : Pamela Smith, RDN
Each guest at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival Culinary Demo received this recipe sheet with all the ingredients for making Art Smith's Buttermilk Waffles and Chicken!!!
You can tell Chef Smith has done a few culinary presentations before! He's great at showing and telling exactly what he's doing to create those amazing Buttermilk Waffles.
Noble Vines 446 Chardonnay was paired with Art Smith's Buttermilk Waffle with Chicken... and it was a great pairing!
And then Bam... The Buttermilk Waffles are delicious!!! Well, there's a little more to it than that!!!
It's not just Chicken and a Waffle, it Chicken and a Mickey Waffle naturally. You can sample your own at "Chef Art Smith's Homecomin'" in Disney Springs.
A toast... for a job well done! In addition to festival emcee Pam Smith and Chef Art Smith, a beverage representative was also on-stage during the culinary demos. 2014 was the last year that beverage reps were part of the culinary demo series.
This is the portion size that each guest attending the 2014 Culinary Demo received! Oh my goodness... I wish I had one of these right now!!!
