California Adventure Food & Wine Festival Culinary Demonstrations
On the Backlot Stage in Hollywood Land on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, guests will discover culinary demonstrations by some of the most celebrated chefs in the industry, who will share their go-to recipes and insider tips for preparing sensational dishes. Chef Daniella Malfitano will present family-friendly seminars on these days. She will demonstrate how preparing and sharing a meal can be a wonderful way to spend time together as a family.
