The proposed menu has been released for this year’s Field to Feast, the terrific event featuring some of Walt Disney World’s top chefs that is held at Long & Scott Farms, and it has a fascinating twist.
F2F is a walkabout event with the chefs cooking onsite at booths under an open-air pavilion. It will take place on Sat., Feb. 22, from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Each cooking station also has its own sommelier pouring selections to match the food. (The wine selections are once again under the direction of master sommelier George Miliotes of Wine Bar George.)
What’s interesting is that this year, each chef station will have two offerings, as they have in the past, but one will be a plant-based alternative.
For example at his station, chef Kevin Downing of Epcot Festivals will offer Prime Steak Tartare, Pickled Vegetable Garden, Béarnaise Dip-n-Dots, and Bone Marrow Snow. And next to it will be Salt Roasted Beet Tartare, Pickled Vegetable Garden, Béarnaise Aïoli, and Hearts of Palm.
Phil Ponticelli, the estimable chef at Golden Oak, will have Shellfish Paella and Plant-based Paella.
And the event will be a good chance to get a taste of Disney’s newest restaurant, Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera. Chef Dom Filoni (previously with Citricos) will have Slow-cooked Lamb Belly, Chick Pea Panissa, Saffron Tomato Compote, and Lamb Jus, and for the planters, Tarbais Bean Cassoulet, Trumpet Royale Mushrooms, Root Vegetables, and Plant-based Sausage.
Field to Feast is one of my favorite events of the year. It’s hosted by Edible Orlando with Walt Disney World Resort as a major sponsor. Tickets are $175 per person and 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. F2F has raised over $100,000 from its previous six events. Also, Field to Feast has sold out each year, so don’t wait to get your tickets at edibleorlando.com.
