Aloha! Our latest episode of Cast Conversations brings us all to Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, where I had the pleasure of speaking with our Head Pastry Chef Carolyn Portuondo.

Chef Carolyn showcased her skills and talents that brought her onto Food Network’s Spring Baking Championship – and even showed us how to make our famous Kona Coffee Cheesecake available at dinner at Makahiki Restaurant here at the resort!

Watch as I bake alongside Chef Carolyn and learn more about her story and experience on the show… and enjoy our special “taste test” with some fan favorite Disney treats! We are very lucky and blessed to have Chef Carolyn in our Aulani ‘ohana, and it was an amazing opportunity to watch her baking talents up close.

Whether you live in Hawaii, or anywhere across the globe, you can help serve up unforgettable dishes and desserts as part of our Disney Culinary team! Check out these opportunities across our parks and resorts to learn, grow and lead in a culinary role at Disney.
