In this week’s dining news round-up, chef’s dinners, free food, and new openings. Are you hungry? Let’s dive in…
K Restaurant will celebrate its 15th anniversary on April 24 with a backyard party. Chef Kevin Fonzo will be joined by chefs Kathleen Blake, James and Julie Petrakis, Greg Richie, Jamie McFadden, Austin Boyd, and Henry and Michele Salgado for a family-firnedly fete featuring food, wine, and live music.
Author Ridley Pearson, who has written the popular Kingdom Keepers series, is set to release the next installment, Kingdom Keepers V: Shell Game. To celebrate, he will be returning to Walt Disney World to sign copies of the new book.
Pearson will first appear at Downtown Disney on March 29, from 4pm to 6pm, at Once Upon a Toy. The store is located in the Marketplace side, near Earl of Sandwich.
The store will begin selling copies of the book starting at 3pm, and a wristband will be issued with purchase. That will allow the purchaser to meet Pearson and get the book signed.
He will appear the next day, March 30, from 9:30am to 11:30am, at The Writer’s Stop, inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios. They will again use the wristband system for autographs, and park admission is required to attend this appearance.
