Sous Chef at Hollywood Studios Creates Awesome Dish for Hispanic Latinx Heritage Month
If you’ve been following along with MickeyBlog you’ll know that September is Hispanic Latinx Heritage Month.
All month long we’ve been featuring special eats and treats created especially for the month and as the month starts to wind down. We’ve got another delectable goodie to share with you.
Meet Frank Vega, a first generation Cuban American who grew up in a muti-generational household where he honed his cooking skills but helping his mother and grandmother in the kitchen.
Eventually he would decide to pursue a career as a chef and set his sights on Walt Disney World.
Frank started his journey at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn creating Mediterranean -style meals with flavors from the Cuban cuisine that he had grown up with. Frank is now looking back on 18 years with the Walt Disney Company and has worked at many an eatery.. You’ll currently find him at Fairfax Faire at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
His latest creation, a Columbian Hot Dog found at Fairfax Fare at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, is one of the special culinary delights available for visitors in honor of Hispanic Latinx Heritage Month now through Oct. 15. This unique take on a hot dog is topped with pineapple mustard slaw, drizzled with garlic cilantro “mayoketchup” (a fusion between ketchup and mayonnaise) and topped with crispy potatoes.
Inspired by his hometown of Miami, the dish pays homage to the restaurants Frank visited as a child. “We really don’t have boundaries when developing new recipes; we can be as creative as we want.”
Having more diverse and unique menu options, like the Colombian Hot Dog, is one way Frank hopes to spark curiosity and connect in our guests to different cultures. “Food brings us closer together,” Frank stated. “It brings out stories of tradition and heritage that unite us all in a fun and exciting way.” Visit the resort to try this and other dishes as part Walt Disney World’s “Together We Are Magia” celebration across property.
