The most popular food at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is the Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup at the Canada stand. But this year’s festival most likely won’t offer it. But the reason for that is actually great news. It’s now available in quick serve form at a year-round stand, plus in a new delicious form: Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup Poutine.
Yes, dipping pretzel bread into your cheese soup is great, but having the soup poured all over French fries with added cheese curds takes it to a new level.
The soup has always been available at Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada pavilion in World Showcase, but that requires a reservation, which can be hard to come by. Disney has even given out the recipe (see below), but that requires you to make it yourself. You can now get a cup of the soup and the poutine at the permanent Refreshment Port stand just before the Canada pavilion. Yes, it’s the same place you can get a delicious cronut (Croissant Doughnut).
The Poutine is $5.99 and a cup of the Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup is $4.19. Since it’s now available in this year-round stand (hopefully it stays around a while), maybe we’ll get a new delicious Canadian treat at this fall’s Food & Wine Festival. Beaver Tail anyone?
