An Inside Look at Edible Orlando’s Field to Feast Dinner featuring Walt Disney World Chefs 2019

On February 23, Edible Orlando magazine once again teamed with the Walt Disney World chefs and Master Sommelier George Miliotes for the 6th annual Field to Feast Dinner at Long & Scott Farms in Zellwood.

All proceeds benefit the 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. More than $100,000 has been raised since the event’s inception in 2013.

The Walt Disney World Chefs definitely showcased their culinary skills this afternoon with dishes that truly sung – from textures to flavors and more – it was to me, at least for this afternoon, the happiest place on Earth for my taste buds.
