George Miliotes Led This Week’s Flavors of Florida Culinary Series at Disney Springs
If you’ve been following along with us here at MickeyBlog you’ll know that Flavors of Florida, the Disney Springs celebration of Sunshine State cuisine has returned for another summer of citrusy eats and treats! New for this year is a Culinary Series. This event takes place at Waterview Park in Disney Springs. Here you’ll learn from the experts at popular Disney Springs dining locations and get to sample some of their “Florida Fare.”
This past weekend’s event featured Master Sommelier George Miliotes and Executive Chef Will Davison of Wine Bar Goerge. They gave a live demonstration yesterday morning focusing on their Dicuru Burrata which is available during Flavors of Florida at Wine Bar George. You can check out the official Disney Springs post about the event below:
As you can see from the photos, guests at this event got a behind-the-scenes look at the culinary process at the Disney Springs eatery and also had the opportunity to sample the dish.
