Beginning July 8, guests can engage in an interactive evening with Disney chefs as they take part in the “Disney Family Culinary Adventure.” This is a hand-on experience in a small group setting, limited to 30. Guests age 9 and older are divided into five cooking groups where they can experience a variety of techniques to make delectable cuisine.
The five cooking stations include:
- Garde manger: where guests learn to make butter from scratch
- Sushi: where guests learn how to roll sushi and sashimi
- Boucherie: where guests learn how to make the perfect filet mignon
- Pasta: where guests learn to make noodles from scratch
- Patisserie: where guests get to experiment with sweets
After learning how to prepare food, guests are free to talk with the chefs to get their wildest culinary questions answered. Then, everyone converges in the center of the kitchen to enjoy the five-course meal they have taken part in preparing. There are vegetarian, vegan, and other selections available for guests with allergies.
The course is served with wine and beer and there is special secret at the end of the meal. Each guest also receives an autographed Disney cookbook as a souvenir.
“We really want them to leave the kitchen with ideas for a spectacular dinner party that they can do at home without opening a can or reaching for something frozen,” says Chef Brough.
The culinary adventure is on select nights. The cost is $175 plus tax for adults and $125 for ages 9 to 12. To book or for more information, call 407-WDW-PLAY or better yet, let our travel agents take care of the reservations for you Destinations to Travel.
This could be a little pricey for a family to consider, but if you ever wanted a little private lesson from some of the best, it might be worth it.
