Edible Orlando and Walt Disney World Making Magic for the Second Harvest Kids Cafe

Last Sunday Edible Orlando and Walt Disney World were blessed with a beautiful day and wonderful support for their combined efforts of hosting the inaugural Field to Feast dinner to benefit Second Harvest Kids Café. The venue was perfect- Long & Scott Farm in Zellwood and the crowd was fun and enthusiastic!

The Chefs spent a number of weeks working on pairings that blended well with Rioja wines and beers from Cigar City Brewing and Cask & Larder Brewing. As guests entered the farm reception they enjoyed adult punch made with Palm Ridge Reserve Whiskey before settling in to the shabby chic farm setting.

As I told one of the guests, I felt the chefs and servers were enjoying the evening as much as the guests, there was truly a community feel that grew in the crowd through the day of set up and into the evening.  It was a great event to be part of and I cannot wait until next year!!
