New Sweet Endings for Re-Imagined California Grill at Walt Disney World


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.
