The items being offered sound great: Watermelon Salad (see the recipe at the Disney Parks Blog), Carrot Wine (and yes, we’ve already tried that… and it doesn’t taste like what you’d expect…), Savory Bread Pudding with Spring Peas and Wild Mushroom Ragout, Pulled Pig Slider with Cole Slaw, Baked Goat’s Brie with Kumquat Chutney and on and on and on…
