Sharing My Recipes, My Life, And The Food Tale Of Two Cities

High Tea-Grand Floridian Resort Disney World

My daughter never ceases to amaze me. I think I’ve mentioned that whenever she comes home for a visit she has a surprise for me, up her sleeve. Turns out that this food adventure was slightly different from all the others not only because it tugged on my heartstrings but because it was a way to pay homage to my mom. If you’ve been following my blog, thank you so much for that, then you know my mom (mum) was from England.

My mom loved her tea. Any idea where I’m going with this yet? Melissa made reservations for High Tea-Grand Floridian Resort, Disney World. OMG!, I couldn’t believe it the Garden View Tea Room.

An entire afternoon, in memory of my mom, Melissa’s Nanny Doris, having High Tea, and a day I’ll never forget. The beautiful view of the garden from the windows that lined the tea room was absolutely breathtaking. Here’s a peek into our day.

Melissa and I had the Cheshire Tea option. We also each had our own pot of tea of our choosing, it was simply amazing. You really did feel like royalty.

As you looked around there were guests that showed they were going all in for the full English experience. Throughout the tea room, all you would see were people dressed in a rainbow of pastel colors with their matching fancy hats that complimented their outfits so beautifully.

I don’t believe I’ve seen a bigger smile on Melissa’s face then when Cinderella and her Prince Charming entered the room. The little girl in her came shining through.

A special day for both of us and one we’ll never forget.

Victoria and Albert’s at the Grand Floridian

Victoria And Albert (3)

Melissa does it again! For my 50th birthday, she takes me to Victoria and Albert’s, inside the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.  Anyone that knows fine dining knows when a restaurant has a Michelin star, this means, it’s the best of the best.  This is what our evening looked like.

Melissa was able to somehow get me a tour of the kitchen, to meet the chefs, and see how everything worked behind the scenes. Totally amazing, and an evening I will never forget. Thank you such much Melissa. For more information visit their website at www.disneyworld.disney.gocom.

Monsieur Paul

My Mother’s day gift was from, of course, my daughter Melissa. It was to Epcot for a special dinner. This gift was a total surprise.

Monsieur Paul, a gourmet restaurant serving a new twist on French cuisine.  The experience from start to finish was amazing,  like nothing I’d ever experienced.  Here are some pictures of our time together.

Above you can see me here in the lobby of the restaurant. See, the staff comes down and escorts you upstairs to the dining room. They do this by having each member of their team escort you individually, by holding your arm, one at a time to the second floor.

Both the Rack of Lamb and the Pan Seared Halibut Over Gnocchi were so delicious. The plate presentation was nothing less than perfection.  The service is just what you would expect with specific attention to detail and absolute professionalism.
