The highlight of my Ocean Spray experience at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival on opening day was wading in the cranberry bog, but there was a lot more to the event than just donning hip waders and sloshing around with the bright red berries.
The media event also featured a delicious selection of food and drinks from various countries. The common thread was that everything I ate and drank incorporated cranberries in some way. I'm already a big cranberry fan, and I incorporate Craisins into salads and several dishes, but the cornucopia of delights that faced me at Epcot taught me that cranberries are even more versatile than I thought.
Check out the list accompanying this article to see some of the mouthwatering dishes. They involved everything from Kobe steak to shrimp quesadillas to Scottish eggs. The sweet taste of cranberries enhanced every option.
If you'd like to see the cranberry bog for yourself and meet a real Ocean Spray grower, just head past the fountain and keep walking toward World Showcase and you can't miss it. It's open every day of the festival.
