    This is one of the very popular signature dishes at Napa Rose.

    Cabernet Blackberry Braised Prime Beef Short Ribs
    Napa Rose Restaurant Disney's Grand Californian, Chef Andrew Sutton

    6 each prime short ribs (each bone-in short rib should weigh about 16 oz.)
    1 bottle cabernet sauvignon
    1 can frozen blackberries with juice (thawed)
    1 large diced onion
    2 coarse sliced carrots
    1 fennel bulb
    1/2 bunch fresh thyme stems
    5 sage leaves
    3 TB kosher salt
    2 TB Coarse ground black pepper
    4 C veal demi glace
    2 C chicken stock
    1/4 C neutral cooking oil

    Season short ribs with salt and pepper 2 hours before you sear them. Keep them cold in the refrigerator. Brown the seasoned short ribs in a sauté pan; set on medium-high heat. Add the sliced vegetables. Reduce the heat to medium and brown all vegetables. Once all vegetables are evenly browned, add one bottle of good cabernet sauvignon and simmer the liquid and vegetables until the liquid is reduced by 75% to 80%. Transfer wine, vegetables and beef short ribs to a crock pot/sauce pan. Add demi glace, chicken stock and thawed blackberries to the ribs and wine. There should be enough liquid to cover the ribs completely by at least 2 inches. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to a slow simmer. Continue simmering the short ribs for 2 ½-3 hours or until tender. Allow ribs to cool in the liquid at room temperature for one hour. Remove ribs from liquid and remove the bones from the short ribs. Reduce the liquid to sauce consistency, strain and pour over the short ribs and refrigerate until ready to use.

    Notes: Chef's Notes: Short Ribs are a great cut of meat but get nice 2 inch thick prime short ribs if you can. It is worth the extra money. As for Wine pairing this is a great dish it would work well with, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir or Syrah. Almost any good red wine with medium low tannin and good fruit characteristics. This Recipe works best made a day ahead.

    Does anyone have the recipe for the pumpkin soup served at Tony's Town Square this Halloween season? My DD and I both really loved the soup - so thick and creamy and with a bit of a kick.
    I have tried two different recipes from Boma for their pumpkin soup thinking it might be the same - but both nothing like it!

    here's hoping

    Thank you so much for all of these recipes; I can't wait to make them all! :)

    Does anyone have the recipe for the Breakfast Pocket from Fountain View Bakery?

    To my dismay, our favorite breakfast location has closed and I would love to make the breakfast pocket for DH!

    Thanks in advance!

    It was for the dinner buffet. The name skips my mind for the moment, but it was the penne pasta dish with the Asiago cheese & bacon. If I remember the name I will let you know.

    The Orlando Sentinel posted the recipe for the grapefruit cake served at the Brown Derby.

    Disney-MGM Studios' Brown Derby Grapefruit Cake
    Yield: 10 servings.
    1 1/2 cups sifted cake flour
    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3 eggs, separated
    1/4 cup each: vegetable oil and water
    3 tablespoons grapefruit juice
    1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
    1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
    16-ounce can grapefruit sections, well-drained

    Cream-cheese frosting:
    16 ounces cream cheese
    1 teaspoon each: lemon juice and freshly grated lemon zest
    1 cup sifted powdered sugar
    6 drops yellow food coloring, or as desired

    1. For frosting, beat cream cheese on high speed until light and fluffy. Add lemon juice and zest. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until blended. Add food coloring as desired.

    2. Heat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease 9-by-2-inch round cake pan. Line bottom of pan with wax paper. Lightly grease paper.

    3. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

    4. Whisk egg yolks, oil, water, grapefruit juice and zest until smooth. Whisk in flour mixture.

    5. Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites and cream of tartar just to stiff peaks. With a rubber spatula, gently fold egg whites into yolk mixture, until just blended. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 25-30 minutes, or until the cake springs back when touched lightly in the center. Invert cake, still in pan, and cool on wire rack. Run a spatula or a table knife around the edge of the cake. Carefully remove cake from pan. With serrated knife, cut cake in half horizontally.

    6. Spread frosting on bottom half of cake. Top with several grapefruit sections (see note). Cover with second layer of cake; then frost top and sides. Garnish with remaining grapefruit sections.

    Recipe note: At the Brown Derby, the cake is garnished with ultra-thin dried sweetened grapefruit slices.

    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    13 1/2 oz. package refrigerated sugar cookie dough at close to room temperature

    2 1/4 pounds Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices (I sliced them thinner)
    1/2 cup granulated sugar (cut back if desired)
    1/8 cup all-purpose flour
    3/4 tablespoon chopped candied ginger
    3/4 cup caramel topping

    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup granulated sugar (cut to 1/3 cup if desired)
    1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed (same as above)
    3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, melted
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    3/4 cup confectioners' sugar (but icing not really needed)

    Baking Instructions:

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Coat the bottom and inside of a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray.

    At medium-low speed, beat the flour and the dough until combined.

    Press the sugar cookie dough into sides and bottom of pan, creating a 1/4-inch thick crust.

    In a mixing bowl, toss the apples with sugar, flour, ginger and cinnamon. Spoon into prepared crust.

    Spoon on caramel topping.

    Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake one hour.

    While pie is baking, in a mixing bowl at low speed, combine flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon.

    Increase speed to medium; gradually add butter and vanilla, beating until wet crumbs form.

    After pie has baked for one hour, remove from oven and uncover.

    Sprinkle crumb mixture over top of warm pie.

    Cover exposed edges of crust with aluminum foil to prevent burning.

    Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.

    Cool on rack and remove sides from the pan.

    Stir together the confectioners' sugar with enough water (but not too much!) to make icing. Transfer to a plastic food storage bag, snip one corner, and drizzle over crumbs. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.

    The apple peeling, coring & slicing takes the most time of anything else. I peeled first, and as I did each apple, I coated each with a dash of lemon juice to prevent browning. I also used a mandoline slicer to slice the apples about 1/8 of an inch thick, which made a difference in how dense & flavorful the apples were in the pie.

    Hope you enjoy it!

    Rose & Crown: Sticky Toffee Pudding

    12 oz. dates, chopped and blanched
    8 oz. hot water
    2 tsp. vanilla bean
    2 tsp. baking soda
    1 lb. all-purpose flour
    2 tsp. baking powder
    4 oz. unsalted butter
    12 oz. sugar
    2 whole eggs
    1/4 tsp. salt

    Chop dates and add to hot water. Stir in vanilla and baking soda. Cream butter and sugar, then add eggs one at a time. On low speed add half flour and baking powder and all of the liquid; mix until combined. Fold in rest of flour to mixture. Fill greased molds halfway and bake 15 minutes at 325 degrees F.

    Butter Rum Toffee Sauce
    1 oz. butter
    4 oz. heavy cream
    3 oz. dark brown sugar
    1/2 oz. dark rum
    Combine butter, sugar, and cream; bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add rum. Stir until all is incorporated.

    Custard Sauce
    8 egg yolks
    3 oz. castor sugar
    1 vanilla bean
    ½ pint milk
    ½ pint heavy cream
    Beat the egg yolks and sugar together in a bowl until well blended. Scrape the insides of the vanilla pod into the milk and cream, adding the pod too, and bring to the boil. Sit the bowl over a pan of hot water and whisk the cream into the egg yolks and sugar. As the egg yolks cook, the custard will thicken. Keep stirring until it starts to coat the back of a spoon, then remove the bowl from the heat and the pod from the custard. Stir the sauce occasionally until cool, to prevent a skin forming.
