It’s time again for one of my favorite food and wine events of the year, the Field to Feast dinner featuring Disney Chefs at Long & Scott Farms in Zellwood.
It’s an open-air walkabout event with food stations set up under and around a large covered pavilion amid the various crops grown in the surrounding fields.
The 6th annual Field to Feast, sponsored by Edible Orlando with Walt Disney World Resort as a major sponsor, will be Saturday, Feb. 23, from 3 to 6 p.m. Tickets are $175 per person with proceeds going to benefit Kids Cafe Program of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, an after-school meal service program that provides food to needy children in Orange, Seminole and Osceola counties. In the past five years, the event has raised more than $100,000 for the program.
Walt Disney World has announced the first three dates for its Delicious Disney Chef Series — Storytelling with Food, an ultra fine dining event that showcases the talents of the resort’s top chefs.
The first dinner will be Jan. 28 at Markham’s at Golden Oak, the exclusive community of multi-million dollar homes. Markham’s is the community’s clubhouse and private restaurant that is usually off limits to nonresidents.
Dominique Filoni, chef at Citricos at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, will lead a team of chefs in the evening’s theme: A celebration of the 60th anniversary of Sleeping Beauty. The actual menus are always a surprise, but each course will somehow be tied to an aspect of the classic animated feature. I’m going out on a limb and predicting there will be apples somewhere.
The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with a reception followed by dinner in the elegant dining room. Tickets for this dinner are $399 per person, all inclusive. Reservations, if they are still available, may be made by calling 407-939-5773.
