The sky couldn’t have been more blue nor the temperature more lovely as the Disney and Edible Orlando teams descended on Long & Scott Farm in Zellwood this past Sunday to prepare for the inaugural Field to Feast dinner to benefit Second Harvest Kids Cafe.
Under the pavilion, eight of Disney’ all-star chefs— Scott Hunnel (Victoria & Albert’s), Brian Piasecki (California Grill), Tim Keating (Flying Fish Café), Frank Brough, (The Wave … of American Flavors), Leonard Thomson (Disney Events), Jens Dahlmann (Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, Phillip Ponticelli (Cítricos), and Stefan Riemer (Disney Desserts)—set to work with their crew to present dishes laden with Florida produce, proteins and seafood, each one paired with Rioja wines and beers from Cigar City Brewing and Cask & Larder Brewing
As the 150 guests arrived, they sipped a punch made with Palm Ridge Reserve Whiskey and drank in the scene: checkered-clothed picnic tables, giant rolls of hay, and dozens of pumpkins, all flanked by miles and miles of corn.
By 4:30 guests “oohs” and “mmmmms” filled the air, a fine complement t0 the shouts and laughs from families giddily making their way through the nearby corn maze.
The culinary carousing continued until the sun set, and guests helped themselves to a six-pack of fresh-picked Long & Scott corn (from the back of a smart car!) and treats from Olde Hearth Bread Company as a sweet memento of a perfect day.
