The Disney Parks Blog shared an interview with California Grill Pastry Chef Jeff Barnes. They discussed some of the new menu items. They include the following:
- Two new breads: “We have created two fabulous new breads just for California Grill,” says Chef Jeff. One is a whole-grain sourdough roll from a starter the Contemporary Bakery, the other lavender-infused focaccia, made with fresh California lavender, olive oil and other herbs."
- Jeff’s favorite dessert is the Sundae Sampler, a trio with a Coke float, strawberry sundae and caramel corn sundae, “too good and tempting to have such great flavors on one plate,” he says. The chocolate pudding cake and banana fritters is a close second, made with a 70 percent dark chocolate from Belgium, new on the market.
- “And I can’t forget the Meyer Lemon cheesecake – so light and refreshing,” says Chef Jeff.
