For the second year, the top chefs at Walt Disney World Resort trekked out to an Orlando area farm to spread a little culinary magic for charity. Teamed up with Edible Orlando and using locally sources ingredients, the menu featured a variety of tasty delights typical of the dining options Disney's resort guests enjoy every day.
Here are some our favorite dishes served.
Creating dishes inspired by Orlando's only AAA Five-Diamond Award winning restaurant was James Beard nominated Chef Scott Hunnel from Victoria and Albert's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort.
Chef Hunnel's delicious dish of Florida Rock Shrimp "Boudin" with Coconut-Curry was our favorite of the evening.
Chef Biran Piasecki from the California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort served a Chicken Roulade from Orlando's Lake Meadow Farms. Included in the dish was Spring Asparagus and Heirloom Carrot Salad with Cabernet-Chicken Demi Glaze.
Paired up with this dish was a tub full of Napa Smith Pale Ale - a handcrafted, golden beer from Nashville Tennessee.
