I always have my list of favorites and this year they include:  
  •  Canada: Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup
  • Argentina: Beef Empanada
  • Germany: Roast bratwurst in a pretzel roll
  • Ireland: Lobster and seafood fisherman’s pie and Kerrygold cheese selection: reserve cheddar, Dubliner with Irish Stout, Skellig
  • Poland: Kielbasa and potato pierogie with caramelized onions and sour cream
  • Hops & Barley: Lobster roll with lemon herb mayonnaise
  • Plus many more as I find something I like at each Marketplace

There are always new tastes to try and this year Scotland sounds wonderful.  You can easily find something to try at each of the Marketplaces as you eat your way “around the world”.  I know I try.

What’s your favorite delights at the EIF&WF?  I hope you get to go and enjoy them all!

One of my favorite memories is not of food but of something my wife overheard.  As they were walking past us a man was telling his wife:  “This is GREAT!!  Every few feet you get a snack and a beer!!
