    Well I guess that proves there is something missing in the recipe that's been given to the public. When I have time I'll contact them and see if I can get a version that includes the actual broth they use.

    I love collecting Disney recipes (clearly, LOL), but one of the challenges is the obvious inaccuracy of some of the recipes - whether they be straight from the place or from the cookbook. Delicious Disney is pretty good, but I've found loads of editing errors in the previous books, including ingredients with no measurements, ingredients that are listed but then don't show up in the preparation, or they are mentioned in the preparation but are not in the ingredient list. Some of the versions in the cookbooks are also different from what was given directly at the restaurant, so there was definitely never the intent to challenge your source, LOL. I actually keep all the versions, so I can tweak the recipes and figure out what the best version is.

    Having said that, I made an all Disney birthday dinner for 12 last night and here is my review. We started with the Sour Apple Chiller cocktail (Disney General bar Menu) which I served with the Dalkey Duo from Raglan Road (p. 45) and Goat Cheese and Tomato Tarts (below) from the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, 2003.

    The cocktail was a complete hit and after I finally sat down to rest at midnight, I made myself a double Sour Apple Chiller and blissed out. That's one drink I could become seriously addicted to. I'll post the recipe below. I know the Dalkey Duo recipe that llyninpa posted was accurate, but as I tried to incorporate the 1 3/4 cups flour and 1/2 cup corn flour into 1/2 cup lager and the mustard to make the batter, it became quickly clear that this was more suitable for making paper mache paste than batter. I checked some other beer batter recipes online and they used about 12 ounces beer for that much flour. I just kept adding lager until the consistency was smooth. My GF did the actual coating and deep frying (as I made the drinks) and she added a little more lager as it was still too thick. They turned out perfectly and got rave reviews - esp. the Mustard Mayonnaise. Not so successful was my second appetizer. There are no instructions as to how seem to roll the puff pastry - so I probably rolled it too thin. Anyway it was very soggy and could not be picked up. It didn't taste that great either.

    We then had the Kona Salad (p. 28) with fresh baked bread and Macadamia Honey butter and though the salad didn't taste quite like I remembered from the restaurant, it was a huge hit. Unfortunately, Mom (who was assigned to make the salad) added all the bacon bits I had set aside for the 'Ohana Green Beans. She was three sheets to the wind already from the martinis and thought her mistake was hilarious, but I wasn't amused. Anyway, the guests loved the bacon bits in the salad and thought it was a hoot that I was upset at the recipe being "messed up". The Macadamia Honey Butter on the warm bread was a huge hit as well.

    Main course was Island Barbecued Pork Ribs from the Poly resort (recipe below) with the Maui Scalloped Potatoes (p. 33) and 'Ohana Green Beans (recipe below). The vegetarians got Maple Glazed Salmon (p. 48). Every dish got raves, despite the fact that the green beans were missing the bacon. :eek: The ribs were such a hit that everybody took some home and my potatoes were perfect. I started with less cream, but had them in the oven longer than an hour because they taste raw to me (I did 4X the recipe), so I added the remaining cream during the cooking time and stirred it up a little. I also covered it with aluminum foil at the end and kept it all warm in the oven.

    The dessert was the Almond-encrusted Cheesecake from Narcoosee's and Banoffi Pie (the traditional recipe - though Raglan Road serves this as well). The cheesecake was the biggest disappointment of the night as it was so much work and my expectations were high. I'm wondering if my son forgot to take it out of the oven. I had to go to work and had set the alarm for him to take it out, but when I got home and it looked dried and cracked and there was no more water in the waterbath. I won't critique this recipe until I find out if it was in the oven too long.

    You're going to visit the Mouse next week?? I want to come!! Would it be possible to write down some of our requests and pass them on to the restaurants IF you happen to eat there or pass by them? It's always best to ask in person.

    OK you can leave it but it will make it harden a bit inside that's all. When it cooks it goes gooey inside but Ive left them before and had them later and they are OK (I prefer them hot though). Havent tried the apple and cranberry boursin as we dont have that one over here in UK. Have used the herb one and have actually had them with cranberry sauce and they were lovely so would think that the apple and cranberry would be nice.

    I have a question in regard to the pretzel bread at Cinderella's Royal Table. I have never eaten there, but are they the same/similar to the ones at Le Cellier?
    If the answer is yes, then Disney does not make them, they are a commercial product (from Canada, if I remember correctly) and not some here in the states.

    I'll try to find the info I saw about them and post it here.


    EDIT: here it is! This is the company that supplies all the pretzel bread to wdw

    Backerhaus Veit LTD.
    70 Whitmore Rd.
    Woodbridge, ON, Canada
