Get out your red pen and circle June 24 on your calendar because you won’t want to miss the one-afternoon only gastronomic event featuring a mix of Pan-Asian and Southern-inspired dishes from Morimoto Asia and The Polite Pig. During this ticketed event, the culinary masters from two of my favorite Disney Springs venues – Chefs Yuhi Fajinaga, James Petrakis and Julie Petrakis – will present a wide variety of family-friendly fusion dishes that bridge Asia and the American South. In addition, guests ages 21 and up can enjoy craft brews from nearby breweries.
Wondering what’s on the menu? Pork cheek tamales, Dim Sum Dogs (gyoza sausage with fried bao bun), Florida peach glazed pork belly satay with spicy peanut sauce, Pork Skirt Steak Yakiniku Tacos and house-cured charcuterie will be served throughout the second floor of Morimoto Asia, while the star of the show – a whole roasted pig – will be sliced and served to guests on the upstairs patio overlooking Disney Springs.
With a focus on locally-sourced ingredients, guests will have the chance to meet the farmers from Frog Song Organics and Palmetto Creek Farms, along with representatives from local breweries including Cask & Larder, Coppertail, Crooked Can Brewing Co., Red Cypress and Red Light Red Light.
The event takes place on Sunday, June 24, 2018 from 12 – 3 p.m. and tickets can be purchased in advance here for $55 plus tax and gratuity; children 12 and under are $25.
If you’re planning to attend, be sure to look for me. This is one “Sunday Funday” I don’t want to miss!
