The 2022 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts is underway, and as part of our coverage, we’re going to review the Outdoor Kitchens. Here’s our The Craftsman’s Courtyard Outdoor Kitchen Review.
The Craftsman’s Courtyard is a brand new Outdoor Kitchen for the 2022 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts.
Pate de Campagne (NEW) – $6.75
Country Port Pate with Pistachios, Truffles, Toasted Ciabatta, Red Onion Marmalade, Pickled Mustard Seed, and Caper Berries
The pate was decidedly middle of the road, probably worse. The accompanying sauce added some much-needed flavor and the overall dish was rather bland. We won’t be going back for seconds.
Cast Iron-roasted P.E.I. Mussels (NEW) – $7.50
Cast Iron-roasted P.E.I. Mussels with Sautéed Tomatoes, Garlic, and Fresh Herbs
The star of the Outdoor Kitchen was the mussels. They are cooked right next to the kiosk and you may experience a bit of a delay as a result. That said, it was worth the wait for us. You can certainly taste the freshness of the grill. A good serving portion made this a winner for us.
Cast Iron-seared Steelhead Trout (NEW) – $6.75
Cast Iron-seared Steelhead Trout with parsley salad, grape tomatoes, Kalamata olives, capers, and lemon aïoli
If you had a two-star pate and a four-star bowl of mussels, the trout ends up somewhere in the middle. It was certainly a fresh fish, but unless you paired each bite with the accompaniments, the fish itself wasn’t all that remarkable.
