The culinary demonstrations allow guests to learn from some of the world’s most celebrated chefs while cooking up a new dish! During each 45-minute demonstration, renowned culinary guests will impart years of kitchen wisdom while whipping up a special delicious dish. In 2019, the culinary demonstrations have been reduced to only two days per week. In previous years, the demonstrations were available every day of the week. The location for the demonstrations has also changed from the Festival Center Stage to the World ShowPlace Events Pavilion located between England and Canada pavilions.
Chef Minnie will join Chef Mickey this year to bring a “sprinkle” of fun to the festival. The new merchandise line shows them busily making cupcakes and other delectable desserts with ingredients that include rose-gold accents and a little sparkle. Chef Minnie will also bring her sense of style to a new cupcake headband and other festival apparel.
