Pam Brandon, Disney Parks Food Writer, was given some recipes to share from the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. Sometimes people forget what good food there is at the Flower and Garden Festival, but one look at these recipes and you will see it isn’t just about the flowers and gardens.
Executive Chef Gregg Hannon was nice enough to share two new recipes with Pam, who in turn shared them on Disney Parks Blog. The first is something that my husband is definitely looking forward to trying, the Beef Brisket Burnt Ends Hash from The Smokehouse:Barbecue and Brews. Chef Hannon says it takes a little time (to make them), but it is worth it.
The second dish he shared is the Florida Blueberry and Lemon Curd Tart from the Florida Fresh Outdoor Kitchen. That sounds delicious and I might have to try making that for dessert this spring/summer.
Here is the recipe for the Burnt Ends Brisket Hash from Disney Parks Blog:
