A few months ago, Erin Foster sent over a photo of some fun candy sushi she and her girls made after getting the idea from California Grill…
This Disney-inspired treat has become one of their family favorites, and I wondered how many more of us have tried our hands at Disney dishes. After all, how many of us have tried a certain dish or food in a Disney park or resort and thought, “I wish I had the recipe for that!”
Cooking at Home, Disney-Style
As it turns out — lots of us have! I received dozens of responses via twitter, facebook, and email from readers who have had great success with creating their favorite Disney favorites at home. Here are a few that came with photos — just click on the links to get the recipes:
Shannon actually sent along her photo of Le Cellier’s Filet Mignon with Wild Mushroom Risotto and White Truffle Herb Butter a few months ago via Facebook:
Erin Foster also sent along a great photo of the Artist Point-inspired kids’ “paint-a-cookie” dessert. She and her girls make these en masse for parties! The paint pots were bought at a local arts store and filled with frosting!
Now, if you’re like me, you’re ready to hit your kitchen and get cooking. But first, here are a few resources for cooking Disney recipes at home that I know you’ll enjoy.
Disney Cooking at Home Resources
If you’re interested in making Disney dishes at home, there are a few sites you should check out:
- Kristen from Cooking with Mickey includes in her repertoire several videos where she demonstrates cooking Disney dishes in her kitchen. She began the Cooking with Mickey series in 2007 for the Sorcerer Radio Community. In 2009 she became the restaurant critic for the Disney Dining Experience, a segment on the Character Breakfast Podcast.
- The Disney Chick includes recipes once or twice a month in her blog. She walks us step-by-step, via photos, through creating some fantastic Disney favorites.
- The All Ears Net Recipes Page includes updated recipes for just about every dining option in Walt Disney World. If you can’t find the recipes anywhere else, you can probably find them here!
Also, you can always purchase one of the Disney Cookbooks produced by the Disney parks and resorts!
Finally, if you’re at the Disney parks or resorts and find a dish you’d like to duplicate, simply as your server if the chef will be willing to share the recipe. More often than not, you can simply give your server your email address and the chef will send along the recipe. Talk about customer service!
