I haven't yet but plan to.
Thanks Tatania for posting the new recipes. I really appreciate the time you take to type them up and to provide your reviews. I added these recipes to my file.

Much appreciated
I am not sure if there is a recipe for Brachiosaurus Bruschetta posted. By the way, you need 10 posts before you can PM someone here.

TIA!
I have to say I rarely use the full amount of sugar called for in any recipes. I would try with 3/4 of the amount called for and see if that helps. I usually do 1/2 to 3/4 the sugar in recipes and the cakes still rise as expected.

what a thread! some I will definitely try.

The one thing I've wanted the recipe to is the basmati rice
they serve at Sanaa. . . .it's delicious and I ate a lot of it
by itself. . .what are the small black seeds in it? I would love
to replicate it at home. I had it with the durban chicken and the
lamb vindaloo.

I think I've properly searched for this recipe, if I missed it just let me know!

I'm looking for the recipe from the Pirates IN the Caribbean night on the DCL: Jack Sparrow's Barbecue Marinated Beef Short Ribs - Rubbed beef short rips with tamarind-barbecue sauce and served with onion red bliss mashed potatoes and plantain chip. I've found pictures, but I really really really want to make them!

Yesterday I purchased all the ingredients to make the cinamon rolls, that's my task for tomorrow. I'm looking forward to baking them and of course trying them!

Hi All,

Just wanted to share my experience with the WDW Cinamon Rolls. I've spent the day prepping the dough and trying to find somewhere warm for it to 'prove' but having just polished one off with my hot choc for tea is was well worth the wait! Good things come to those who wait as they say!

Here they are just before going in the oven:


and as they came out of the oven, still in the tin:


and some of the spares on a plate:


We opted not to add the frosting through choice, but I'm sure it would have been lovely!

As I had to convert the recipe to grams rather than cups for UK use, I thought I would share it for anyone else who prefers to do things this way.

125ml Warm Water
16g yeast (2 sachets)
2 tablespoons of caster sugar
2 packets of vanilla Angel Delight
500ml Milk
113g unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1024g self raising flour
227g unsalted butter, melted (this was more than enough though!
440g light soft brown sugar
2 tablespoons cinamon

A couple of hints are make sure you grease the tray/tin REALLY WELL as the filling may spill out while cooking and it sticks fast! Remove from the tin virtually straight away to avoid setting.

I hope you all enjoy them as much as me and the parents have!

Hi
I'm looking for the Lobster Tortelini from Coral Reef recipe.
I had the Lobster Tortelini last time I visited, and I was looking forward to have it again on our next visit, but they changed the menu. Now I would really lie to cook it myself at home, because I really loved it.

Does anyone have the recipe or a similar one?

greeneyes - I'm on the road a lot these days and don't cook all that much or keep up with things Disney - except for once in while when I go crazy and track down all the new recipes! If there's anything you think looks new and interesting in the F&W Festival cookbook and care to share - I'm not fussy about what it is. I'm going to order the new Disney cookbook today.



Celtic Twilight
Palo in Disney Cruise Line at Disney Cruise Line

1 1/2 oz. Jameson Irish whiskey
3/4 oz. Pernod anise
1 oz. Noilly Prat vermouth
Dash of Angostura bitters

Pour over ice. Stir well. Garnish with a lemon wheel.

LeFou's Brew
Gaston's Tavern, Magic Kingdom
makes 32 ounces

Foam Topping Ingredients:
1 cup heavy whipping cream, cold
4 tablespoons Mango Nectar/Juice (I found this in my grocery store's Mexican Food aisle)
4 tablespoons Passionfruit Juice (I found this in the refrigerated juice section, by orange juice)
3 tablespoons sugar

Pour whipping cream into mixing bowl. Add mango and passionfruit juices. Add sugar and beat on high until stiff peaks form (this can take a while and it helps if your mixing bowl has been chilled). Set aside in fridge.

Apple Slush Ingredients:
2 (12 ounce) cans of frozen no-sugar added apple juice concentrate (keep frozen until ready to use)
12 ounces cold water (I just filled one of the empty juice cans for this)
3 squirts (or tablespoons) Torani Toasted Marshmallow Syrup

Dump both cans of frozen apple juice into a blender. Add water and 3 squirts of the toasted marshmallow syrup. Blend on high for about 10 seconds. You should now have a slush texture beverage. Immediately** pour into glasses and top with prepared foam topping.
Note: Disney keeps the mix moving in rotating slush machines all day. With that in mind, don't make your Le Fou's Brew until you are actually ready to serve it. It does not keep.



Halibut Ceviche
Carthay Circle in Disneyland

Ingredients - Halibut Ceviche
1/2 pound sushi-grade halibut, diced into 1/4-inch cubes
1/4 pound yellowtail, diced into 1/4-inch cubes
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Coarse salt, to taste
1 Roma tomato, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped cucumber, peeled and seeded
1/4 cup chopped cilantro, divided
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
Juice of 2 limes, divided
1 Haas avocado, finely chopped
2 tablespoons yellow onion, finely chopped
1 thinly sliced red jalapeno, for garnish

Ingredients - Tomatillo-Jalapeno Sauce
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 jalapeno, thinly sliced with seeds
3 tomatillos, sliced
1 cucumber, peeled and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
Coarse salt, to taste

Directions - Tomatillo-Jalapeno Sauce
Saute onions and garlic in olive oil in a medium saucepan over low heat.
Add jalapenos and tomatillos, cover with water and simmer until tomatillo is tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove from heat, cool and drain.
Puree mixture with cucumber and cilantro in a blender.
Strain through a fine strainer and season with salt.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Directions - Halibut Ceviche
Mix together halibut, yellowtail, orange juice, lime juice and lemon juice in a glass bowl, stirring to coat fish.
Add a generous pinch of salt, cover and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours.
After fish marinates 4 to 6 hours, and just before serving, drain and stir together ceviche with tomato, cucumber, half of chopped cilantro, 1 tablespoon olive oil, juice of 1 lime, and salt in a mixing bowl.
In another bowl, mix avocado, onion, remaining chopped cilantro, remaining lime juice, remaining olive oil and salt.
To serve, spoon 3 to 4 tablespoons of tomatillo-jalapeno sauce onto each plate. Top each with equal amounts of avocado salad, then ceviche. Garnish with jalapeno slices.


Osso Bucco with Saffron Risotto
Disney Cruise Lines
Serves 4

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 large carrots, finely diced
2 stalks celery, finely diced
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
4 center-cut veal shanks
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 small yellow onion, finely diced
1/2 cup dry red wine (such as Merlot)
4 cups veal stock*
1 (14-ounce) can peeled plum tomatoes
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, roughly chopped

Saffron Risotto
8 cups vegetable stock
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, divided
4 shallots, finely diced
2 cups Arborio rice
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup brandy
1 teaspoon saffron threads
1 cup mascarpone cheese
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Red Wine Sauce
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 shallots, finely diced
1 stalk celery, finely diced
1/2 large carrot, finely diced
1/2 leek, finely diced
1 1/4 cups red wine
2 cups reserved Osso Bucco cooking liquid

Gremolata
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

For risotto:
Bring vegetable stock to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and keep warm on stove.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large, deep sauté pan or stockpot over medium heat. Add shallots, cooking until just tender, about 3 minutes.
Add rice, stirring to coat in butter. Cook until rice turns milky white and opaque, and just begins to stick to bottom of pan.
Add wine and brandy, and stir 2 minutes, until liquid is almost absorbed. Crumble saffron into pan, stirring to combine.
Ladle about 1 cup simmering stock into rice. Cook about 2 minutes, stirring often, until stock is almost completely absorbed. Continue adding stock, 1 cup at a time, stirring gently until almost all broth is absorbed before adding next cup. Add stock until rice is creamy and cooked through.
Stir in mascarpone, cream, and Parmesan; season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon butter.

For osso bucco:
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Heat oil in a heavy stockpot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Season shanks with salt and pepper; working in batches to avoid crowding pan, add shanks to pan. Sear shanks until golden brown, then transfer to a plate and set aside.
Add garlic, carrots, celery, and onion to pan, adding additional oil if needed; cook, stirring often, until softened.
Add wine and tomatoes to pan, stirring until wine is reduced by two-thirds. Add shanks back to pan; pour stock to cover shanks by three-quarters.
Cover pan and place in oven. Cook 2 to 2 1/2 hours, until shanks are very tender.
Remove shanks from cooking liquid; strain cooking liquid through a fine-mesh sieve and set aside.

For red wine sauce:
Heat oil in a large, deep sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add shallots, celery, carrot, and leek. Cook until vegetables begin to brown.
Add wine and cook until almost completely reduced. Add strained cooking liquid and simmer until reduced by half, about 20 minutes. Strain sauce through a fine-mesh sieve.

For gremolata:
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring until completely combined.

To serve:
Spoon risotto in the center of a dish; place a shank over risotto. Top with gremolata and drizzle with red wine sauce.

Grilled Tuna with Truffle-Infused Potato Risotto, Garlic-Marinated Artichokes, and Tarragon-Veal Jus
Palo, DCL
Serves 4

Potato Risotto
1/2 pound russet potato, peeled and cubed
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 shallot, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup dry white wine (such as chardonnay)
1 cup heavy cream
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon white truffle oil
Freshly grated parmesan cheese, to taste

Tarragon Veal Jus
1 1/4 cups veal stock
1 cup dry red wine (such as merlot)
3 stalks fresh tarragon

Marinated Artichokes
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 shallot, sliced
4 artichokes packed in oil,* drained, cut into thirds
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Grilled Tuna
4 (1/2-pound) ahi tuna steaks
Extra virgin olive oil, for grilling
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For marinated artichokes:
Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat until it shimmers. Add shallot and garlic, cooking until fragrant and golden.
Add artichokes, tomatoes, and chives. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sauté until tomatoes just begin to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and set aside until ready to serve.

For tarragon veal jus:
Combine red wine and tarragon stalks in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Simmer until reduced by 1/3, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Add veal stock and simmer until reduced by 1/3, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve and set aside until ready to serve.

For potato risotto:
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook potatoes until tender but not falling apart, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add shallot, cooking until translucent. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds, or until very fragrant and golden.

Crepes Atlas
Restaurant Marrakesh in EPCOT at Disney World

Ingredients - Crepes
2 eggs
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 tbsp butter, melted
Ingredients - Filling
2 cups apple pie filling
Ingredients - Sauce
1 cup honey
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a baking sheet and set aside. Heat a 5 to 7 inch skillet over medium heat.
Combine eggs, flour and salt in a large bowl. Add just enough of the milk to make a smooth paste.
Add the remaining milk, stirring until there are no lumps. Whisk in the melted butter.
Ladle or pour just enough crepe batter to cover the pan with a thin layer (about 1/4 cup) and quickly rotate pan to distribute the batter evenly. Cook over medium heat until the edges of the crepe curl up and brown slightly, about 1 to 2 minutes. Using two spatulas, flip it over and cook the other side for 1 to 2 minutes.
Remove to a plate. Pour batter into pan for the next crepe. Meanwhile, spoon 1/4 cup apple pie filling down the center of the cooked crepe. Roll up the crepe and place it on the prepared baking sheet. Continue preparing crepes in this fashion until the batter is gone. Add the hot melted butter to the honey and cinnamon and stir with a fork. Pour the honey mixture over the crepes. Bake 5 to 8 minutes, or until the crepes are warmed through.
Remove from the oven and transfer to individual plates. Drizzle crepes with pan sauce and serve with vanilla ice cream sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon.
