ABC’s daytime series “The Chew” returns to Walt Disney World this week to film five shows from the 21st Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
The shows, to record Oct. 5 to 7 at Epcot with co-hosts Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and Daphne Oz, will air on ABC Oct. 10 to 14, 2016, at 1 p.m. EST, 12 p.m. PT (check local listings).
The co-hosts, who entertained audiences last year with stories of their Disney adventures as they whipped up dishes and drinks, will share tasty new recipes and a bounty of festival surprises with their Epcot audiences. Throughout the festival, which runs until Nov. 14, “The Chew” will also feature segments highlighting food and beverages from “around the world” of Walt Disney World and its four theme parks and Disney Springs.
Fans of “The Chew” and the annual Epcot festival can enjoy bites inspired by the talk show at The Chew Collective in the Next Eats festival area of Future World. Festival guests also can sip this year’s exclusive new Festival Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon at The Chew Collective. At the Festival Center, guests can watch screenings of “The Chew” show highlights, cooking and entertaining tips, and same-day episodes of “The Chew” Monday through Friday at 1 p.m.
“We had a fantastic time filming our show last year at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival and sharing the magic with Park guests and our home viewers. It’s the perfect pairing!” said Mark Schneider, executive producer of “The Chew.” “We look forward to returning for even more fun and great food with our fans and celebrity guests. For us, it’s a terrific way to kick off our new season.”
Tickets to be in the audience for the tapings are gone, but there will be a special Q & A session with the hosts on Oct. 4 at 3:30 p.m. in the America Gardens Theatre at Epcot. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
