ABC's hit show "The Chew" is returning to the Epcot Food & Wine Festival this fall.
The cast, which includes chefs Mario Batali, Carla Hall, Michael Symon and TV personality Clinton Kelly, is set to return for filming Oct. 4-6. The five festival-centric episodes will air between Oct. 9-13. This is the third year the show has taped at the annual Walt Disney World event.
“It’s magical to see our Epcot stage light up as the show’s celebrated hosts cook, dish and entertain each live audience of festival guests,” said Epcot Vice President Melissa Valiquette on the Disney Parks Blog.
Similar to previous years, the cast will entertain a live audience with on-stage cooking and tape segments around the park.
Three dishes inspired by "The Chew" will be available for purchase at the Earth Eats Marketplace during the duration of the 75-day long festival. Those dishes are Grilled Beef Skewer with Romaine, Apricots and Feta Cheese; Ricotta and Zucchini Ravioli with Rustic Tomato Sauce and Peanut Butter and White Chocolate Mousse with Caramel Drizzle, according to Disney.
Epcot Food & Wine kicks off Aug. 31 and runs through Nov. 13. The festival is included with park admission, but, as always, prepare your wallet for the cost of sipping and eating around the World Showcase.
