What a fun way to feel like a local at Disney! It has just been announced that Tables in Wonderland Members can salute Florida Strawberry Season with a Discovery Dinner at the Wave! As a reminder The Wave… of American Flavors is located in the Contemporary Resort. It is THE place to delight in fresh, American cuisine and healthful dishes infused with an international flair year round. For maximum freshness, many of the ingredients featured on the menu are sourced locally and regionally. As mentioned, this month’s Discovery Dinner will be celebrating the Central Florida Strawberry Season, so it is not surprising that it will feature strawberries direct from Lott Farms, located just west of Plant City, Florida. Lott Farms is owned by Mike and Sandy Lott, who have have lived on and farmed this land with their children and grandchildren ever since 1983.
Diners will get welcome Tim Mahr as the wine speaker. Tim has gained a tremendous amount of respect in the wine industry, has been awarded several awards, and is now the Vice-President of Southern States. He has also happened to have made his home in Tampa Florida for the last 25 years.
The Discovery Dinner event will take place at The Wave on Thursday, March 20, 2014. Every one will meet at The Wave… of American Flavors Main Podium in casual evening attire. Pricing will be $110 per person, includes tax and gratuity – and you will want to view full booking instructions and details at the bottom of this post so you can get your ticket before they run out.
