Another Fun Field to Feast

Field to Feast 2018 still

It was another fun event Saturday at the fifth annual Field to Feast, sponsored by Edible Orlando with major support by Walt Disney World Resort. The event was held on the grounds of Long & Scott Farms in Zellwood and featured 11 chefs from various Disney restaurants.

(Watch the video above for some of the sights and sounds (if not the actual tastes) of this year’s event.)

Field to Feast is a fundraiser for Kids Cafe Program of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, an after-school meal service that provides food to needy children in Orange, Seminole, and Osceola counties. Edible’s publisher, Kendra Lott, announced that the five Fields to Feast have collectively raised over $100,000 for the program.

The Feast is held largely under a large pavilion (with new side wings added this year!) surrounded by the farm’s various crops. The chefs cook onsite and serve the guests who mingle about (extra seating this year, too) and each station had a wine or cocktail pairing.

Some of my favorites this year included the Adobo Braised Lamb Belly (shown at top) from Michael Gonsalves of Artist Point.

Robby Sayles of Tiffins had a beautifully seared Lionfish with Jerusalem Artichoke.

And Flying Fish’s Tim Majoras had Wild Floridian Shrimp with heirloom tomatoes.

This year’s event was earlier than previous years, running from 3 to 6 p.m., which allowed guests to enjoy and get home before the mosquitos came out to play.

Congratulations to the team at Edible Orlando and all the participating chefs (and to the guests who helped raise funds for the cause).
