Master sommelier George Miliotes will be joining the top chefs from Walt Disney World Resort’s restaurants for the fourth annual Field to Feast event on March 25 in Zellwood. Miliotes, who opened was general manager of California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort before joining Darden to develop Seasons 52, will open his Wine Bar George later this year at Disney Springs.
In teaming up with the event, presented by our friends at Edible Orlando, Miliotes will oversee the wine, beer and cocktail pairings for the dinner. (Here’s my review of last year’s event.)
Field to Feast has become a must-do event for area food fans and has sold out each of the previous three years. The walkabout dinner takes place on the property of Long and Scott Farms in Zellwood and highlights the bounty of Central Florida’s food producers.
Tickets are $175 per person with all proceeds benefiting the Kids Cafe Program of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. Kids Cafe is an after-school meal service program that provides food to needy children in Orange, Seminole, and Osceola counties.
The bucolic and rustic setting of the dinner, which takes place under a large, open-air pavilion next to the farm’s cornfield, belies the top-notch quality of the cuisine being served. I’ve had the pleasure of attending the past two years and would rearrange my calendar so as not to miss it.
Field to Feast is March 25, from 5 to 8 p.m. Tickets are available at EdibleOrlando.com.
