Just got back from the Marathon Weekend. We didn't really concentrate on dining with an eye toward posting reviews (our attention was on the races), but we did ask for a few recipes. This is the first to come in:

50's Prime Time Cafe: Citrus Vinaigrette

Ingredients:
  • 8 ounces Vinaigrette or Italian dressing 8 ounces
  • ½ cup Orange Juice
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Orange Juice Concentrate
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar

Method:
Combine all ingredients together thoroughly.



______________________________________
It's a nice, fairly light but sweet vinaigrette that dressed up their simple house salad quite nicely.

P.S. I'm expecting some recipes from California Grill & Boma, so keep your fingers crossed. They're being sent to my DMIL, and I hope she remembers to pass them along.

Kona Cafe: Mashed Potatoes

Now I have a question. My family and I recently dined for dinner at Kona Cafe, and we all went crazy for the mashed potatoes served on the side. They were probably the best that I've ever had! So I wanted to know if anyone could do me the huge favor of getting this recipe? Or, if the same recipe is used in another restaurant on or off Disney property and is already published, could anyone point me to it? Ever since eating those potatoes, I've been itching to try and prepare them! Any help would be most appreciated!

Thank you again for all of this hard work you've done putting this thread together!
Glad to hear that you are enjoying the Recipe Exchange, tink! I don't think I myself have come across a recipe for the mashed potatoes at Kona Cafe yet I do know they use Yukon Gold potatoes. I will post your request on the Requested Recipes list!

They also repeat many recipes from the previous books. That's one thing I find disappointing about the 4 cookbooks currently in print - they repeat too many recipes.
I also have all four cookbooks and it makes me nuts trying to find recipies!

BTW Thanks for all the new recipies!

Eiswein Martini

Quote:
P.S. I'm expecting some recipes from California Grill & Boma, so keep your fingers crossed. They're being sent to my DMIL, and I hope she remembers to pass them along.
I'm also waiting for the requests I put in at 4 restaurants. I wrote to Disney Guest Relations tonight and hinted that in return for filling out questionnaires are really expect to hear back from these restaurants, LOL.

Heading back to work tomorrow and am SO tired but will post 2 of the requested drink recipes I was given.

Eiswein Martini
Le Cellier, Epcot

1 ounce Inniskillan Vidal Eiswein
1 ounce Vodka

Shake with ice for approximately 60 seconds, then strain into a martini glass.


Grey Goose Citron Vodka Slushie
Drink Kiosk by France, Epcot

3 cups Grey Goose Citron Vodka
1 cup *Polynesian Pleasure Lemon Frozen Drink Mix from Florida Natural Flavours in Casselberry, FLA
Ice if making in a blender or water according to manufacturer’s instructions for slush machine.

Mix Vodka and Polynesian Pleasure Lemon. It helps to chill the mix before putting in a slushie machine. Add the required amount of water for your machine (generally for 1 liter alcohol you use 1 ¾ gallon or 28 cups water.)
If making in a blender use enough ice to produce the slushie effect.
* can try substituting frozen Minute Maid lemonade


Grand Marnier Orange Slush
Drink Kiosk by France, Epcot

3 cups Grand Marnier
1 cup *Orange Fruit Smoothie from Florida Natural Flavours in Casselberry, FLA
Ice if making in a blender

Same instructions as for the Lemon Slush.
*If substituting the Orange Fruit Smoothie try for something with an orange dreamsicle taste.

Shrimp & Prosciutto Penne Pasta

1 lb Penne
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tbsp Garlic
10 oz Shrimp
1/2 cup Prosciutto, chopped
1/2 cup White Wine
1 cup Heavy Cream
1/2 cup Parmesan, grated
1/4 cup Basil, chopped
1/4 cup Tomato, diced

1) Cook pasta, drain, and keep warm.
2) Warm olive oil in a large skillet. Add garlic, shrimp, and prosciutto, and saute over medium heat for about three minutes, until shrimp are pink and firm.
3) Add white wine and simmer for one minute.
4) Stir in cream and cheese, gently fold in pasta.
5) Garnish with basil and tomatoes.

I made a few changes to the recipe. I did not use prosciutto, since I don't really care for it, and I also didn't use any tomato since none of the tomatoes at the store looked good. I did however add some asparagus, which I believe how it is served at the Grand Floridian Cafe, where this dish is served.

I also thought that the dish was kind of dry, and didn't have enough sauce, so I mixed in some sour cream, and that made it nice and creamy.

That is one of the recipes on our Requested Recipe List (page 15, post 222) I have not been able to find it yet if I or a fellow Diser finds the recipe, I will let you know, upon-a-star.

Tatania,

Thank you sooooooooo much for all the great recipes! I need some Inniskillen to make that martini now. I could use 1 or 12 of them after my day at school today! (I work in Special Education)

Once again, lynninpa, thanks for all you do to keep this thread up-to-date!

1 or 12 of them, CrazedDisFan? Was that a typo or how you really feel? Heck, I was thinking about martinis by 10 am today. Not only do we both love Disney and food, we also have something else in common-I work in Special Ed, too!

Nope, 1 or 12 was SOOOOO not a typo!

Today we had a situation that moved a male co-worker with 28 years experience to tears today. I came home and cried today, had I started at work it would have been never ending. Some people should not be allowed to procreate.
