Disney made wishes come true when they served up a helping of peanut dipping sauce to a 14-year old girl.
In 2012, Winter and her family were on a family vacation where they enjoyed a meal at ‘Ohana in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. Chef Jeff Moore came to the tableside to discuss various dietary needs with Winter, never knowing he was about to change her life. This experience set her on a path of discovering her love for the culinary arts.
As a Make A Wish Foundation recipient, Winter wished for a return trip to Disney World and the opportunity to cook alongside Chef Jeff. With her wish granted, Winter returned to the Polynesian and was able to whip up a serving of spring rolls and peanut dipping sauce alongside her favorite sous chef. Here is a special video commemorating the experience.
The peanut dipping sauce Winter created for her dish is well-known amongst ‘Ohana fans. It is often served with Pork Dumplings and Honey-Corriander Wings and used to season many of the restaurants’ skewered meats. Join in on the experience by making some of your own peanut dipping sauce at home.
