Today’s Picture of the Day comes from Boma in Animal Kingdom Lodge.
It has been a while since I have made one of the recipes from our Disney cookbook. So, I thought it was time to crack open the cookbook again. My husband and I both looked it over and we agreed on the Pollo a las Rajas from San Angel Inn Restaurante in the Mexico pavilion in Epcot.
On our next trip we are staying at the Boardwalk Villas, so we will be within walking distance of Epcot and all the wonderful dining experiences in the World Showcase. Cooking this recipe gave us a sample of what San Angel Inn Restaurante has on their menu and we we not disappointed.
For legal reasons, I cannot actually post the recipe (it being copyrighted material and all), but I can give you a review of the recipe. If it sounds good to you then you can always look for the book the next time you are in Disney. I’m not sure if you can order it directly from Disney, but it cannot hurt to call and ask. I found a Guest Services number on disneystore.com, 1-800-328-0368. The name of the cookbook is ‘Cooking with Mickey and the Disney Chefs’ by Pam Brandon and I purchased it from the gift shop at Animal Kingdom Lodge.
The copyright info from the book. I know some people do not pay attention to this, but I do not want to be on the receiving end of Disney’s legal team.

Now for the recipe review. We loved it! Well, my husband and I did. Our kids are still young and sometimes it is hard to get them to try something that “looks different.” All in good time. If you like Mexican food then you will love this. It is a nice step away from the usually burritos and quesadillas. The vegetables are in a type of cream sauce, but there is a little kick to it, so it is a perfect topper for the chicken.

All of the flavors worked so well together with this recipe. So, again, if you are a fan of Mexican food chances are you will love this dish. We have decided to put San Angel Inn on the list of restaurants to try next time. I have heard good things, so we are excited to try more dishes from this restaurant.
I have tried quite a few recipes from this book and we have yet to come across a bad one. There may be some that not everyone likes, but there is always at least one person who will enjoy it. For example, for his birthday I made my husband the Coconut Curried Chicken Stew from Boma–Flavors of Africa. He loved it, but I am not that big on curry. I told him the soup was all his and I don’t think he was disappointed about that. That’s why I recommend this book. There is something for everyone. Plus, it’s fun to cook the Disney recipes and add a little Disney to your meal! Happy cooking!
Thanks for reading!
