by | Jul 27, 2021 | EPCOT, WDW Blog, WDW Food

Here’s every menu item (and the best cheeses) from Emile’s Fromage Montage at the 2021 Food and Wine Festival.

Your cheesy mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make like Remy’s friend, Emile, and gather all the cheese you can at the 2021 Food and Wine Festival.

It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.

Here are all five of the menu items, and since we all love wine (or other spirits) with our cheese, we’ve got 🍷 wine pairings for each cheese selection. 

1. 🧀 Griddled Cheese in Greece

This griddled cheese is actually one of WDW Magazine’s Best of the Fest choices, so lucky you to kick off the cheese trail with this sumptuous treat.

🍷 Pair it with: This is a sweet and salty cheese pairs well with the Wine Flight ($6.50) at the Greece booth.

2. 🧀 Schinkennudeln in Germany

No, that’s not deja vu. The Germany booth has been serving up these cheesy noods for years. In fact the whole Germany booth menu has been the same for a while. The good news is if you love these salty ham spirals, they’re here to stay.

🍷 Pair it with: The Beer Flight ($9.75) has to be good… this is Germany, after all. To hear about each of the three beers in the flight, read our full review…

3. 🧀 Crispy Barbecue Pork Rinds

WDW Magazine reporter, Tina Chiu said in her review that she loved the cheese so much she tried to take it home in a Tupperware! Now that’s the kind of commitment we love to see.

🍷 Pair it with: The Rombauer Zinfandel from California ($9.50) is a dry wine that can balance out the intense flavors of this cheese. Pork rinds and wine? This whole cheese trail is based on a talking rat, so anything can happen.

4. 🧀 Passion Fruit Cheesecake

After so many decadent and salty cheese selections, this cake is light and mild in flavor, with fresh fruit and a bright flaky crust.

🍷 Pair it with: Since this dish is so mild, it goes well with the Aulani Sunrise ($14) at the Hawaii booth. The Aulani Sunrise is sweet (without being too sugary), so it balances well with this dessert.

5. 🧀The Corned Beef Corner Route

Who is the star here? The house-made chips? The corned beef? The cheese curds? There’s a lot going on with this dish, but the squeaky cheese curds are certainly a stand-out. Like the Griddled Cheese from Greece, this dish made it into WDW Magazine’s Best of the Fest.

🍷 Pair it with: The Swine Brine ($11) is hands-down the best drink at this booth, and comes with a bonus meat hunk! It has a slight sweetness that paired really well with the salty corned beef. Read our full Swine Brine review…

🧀 The Cheesy Prize 🧀

Your reward, aside from eating so much great cheese, is a Strawberry Cheesecake Soft-serve in an Emile’s Fromage Montage collector cup! 

Now your friends will all know just how cheesy you can be.

How Much Does Emile’s Fromage Montage Cost?

To get all five hunks, bowls, and crumbles of cheese, you’ll spend $23.50. The menu items tend to be on the lower cost side of Food and Wine selections.

The cheapest item on the menu is the Passion Fruit Cheesecake ($4.25), and the most expensive is the Corned Beef Corner Route ($5.50).

Is Emile’s Fromage Montage Worth It?

Well.. do you love cheese? If so, go for it!

We suggest starting with the Crispy Barbecue Pork Rinds as an appetizer, then making your way around World Showcase to grab the noodles, griddled cheese, and corned beef before ending at Hawaii to eat the cheesecake for dessert.
