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.
Again this year, master sommelier George Miliotes, owner of Wine Bar George, will select the wines, beers and cocktails to be paired with the foods created by the Disney chefs. Participating restaurants this year include Tiffins, California Grill, The Hollywood Brown Derby, Yachtsman Steakhouse, Be Our Guest Restaurant, the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival chefs, Disney Park Events Operations and Premium Events chefs, Magic Kingdom Park pastry chefs and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Bakery team. Each will be paired with a Disney sommelier.
There is also live music, tractor-driven tours of the farm and a raffle. It’s a casual affair — no need to get dressed up for this one. Wear your gingham, plaids and comfortable shoes.
The event has a solid record of selling out, so go to edibleorlando.com now to secure your tickets.
