This year’s Epcot International Food and Wine Festival has been quite the ride. Full of great food, long days, many laughs and a ton of “growth”. We had amazing Visiting Chefs join the #DisneyChefs family, and even more Home Team Chefs participate. Every Saturday was a culinary adventure during the Party For The Senses, always giving a great learning.
The Chefs were all great, they grabbed on to the Disney Magic and gave it back tenfold.
So many exceptional, creative dishes were enjoyed by 1000’s!
Of course the drinks were equally enjoyable, some weeks they were just what the doctor ordered!
Our on Park Event Operations Chefs hit home runs more than a couple of times! Chef Joe Bonanno was a crowd favorite!
We had quite a few other events then Party For The Senses- The Magic of Healthy Living being one of them-
Celebrity Chefs Brian Frick, Andrew Zimmerman and the Voltaggio Brothers joined us for a night.
Thanks Michael for pausing for me to take a picture-
I love the family affair!!
Jonathon Sawyer, of the Greenhouse Tavern in Cleveland Ohio, definitely won for most nicest/bad@## Chef in my opinion- Food was amazeballs and he and his team were super fun and really enjoyed what they were doing.
Chef Judi and her PEO team were awesome- They had a truckload of fun and delivered a great scallop dish.
Chef Christine and 1200 Potato Rings. Great to see some things never change, never settle.
This Sauerkraut Bread Pudding was my favorite- had nothing to do with all the Contemporary hats.
A few of my new Chef friends!
We had to celebrate Halloween with a few cute cupcakes. And I did manage to get one picture in front of the camera.
The Cirque entertainment was captivating and the room set was top notch sexy.
We did manage to have some fun-
The famed Chef Joe Rod (Rodriguez) came back to PEO from Norway (the real country, not Epcot Norway), and was the highlight of the week.
Last but not least- Louie- the man that makes things happen- one way or another!
Just a short visual summary of the last few weeks- Truly hard to sum up the experience, but it certainly is one I wouldn’t trade. Just happy to be part of an amazing team!!
