Disney's Contemporary Resort offers new 'Family Culinary Adventure'

Jul 02, 2015 in "Family Culinary Adventure"

Disney's Contemporary Resort will begin offering a new 'Family Culinary Adventure' experience from July 8 2015.

Taking place in the Contemporary Convention Center, the 3.5 hour experience will take guests backstage for a fun, interactive evening that includes time with the Disney chefs, hands-on cooking and a five-course dinner with beer and wine served in the kitchen by the professional catering staff.

Starting at 5pm two days per week, the event is aimed at guests ages 9 and over, where the group of up to 30 guests are split into five groups to each man a station in the kitchen. 

  • Garde manger, is the French term for food produced in the cold kitchen, where guests learn how to make farmer cheese, from-scratch butter, and how to plate a gourmet salad on a rapidly moving electric belt in the professional kitchen.
  • Sushi, with sushi chefs teaching the art of rolling sushi and sashimi. (This station may rotate with other culinary ideas.)
  • Boucherie, or butcher station, where guests learn how to trim a beef tenderloin to make the perfect filet mignon.
  • Pasta, with just three ingredients (semolina, olive oil and egg), guests learn to make tender noodles from scratch, along with fresh basil pesto.
  • Patisserie, or bakery, where guests get to play with chocolate, mousse and other sweet endings.

Once the hour long prep work is done, guests are seated at a long table in the kitchen to enjoy the five course meal that they have just been preparing.

At the end of the evening guests receive a chef's hat to take home, along with a Disney cookbook signed by the chefs.

Cost is $175 plus tax, $125 plus tax for ages 9 to 12. Complimentary transportation is provided for Disney Resort hotel guests. To book or for more information, call 407-WDW-PLAY.
