    I’m so glad Disney brought back the Food and Wine Festival! looking forward to seeing Chefs Fieri, and Irvine! I’m going to try to hit all the food booths if I can. During the first round of the Festival, Before they wen on hiatus, I took a cooking class at the Napa Rose Restaurant with Executive Chef Andrew Sutton! I had a great time, learned new skills, and earned a really cool Napa Rose Chefs coat! Enjoy everyone!
