The only reason I would not recommend it was the online booking system was a nightmare. When I finalyy could reach someone, everyone I dealt with was extremely pleasant and chef Bennett , in Winter Park, FL, was wonderful with the kids and that is why I would recommend it.

From Our Editors

When Gerald Bennett began work as head chef at the InterContinental Hotel in Cleveland, he was accustomed to whipping up dishes for celebrity clientele. But when the royal family of Dubai came to visit and he served them in their opulent suite, he never thought they'd ask him to leave with them as their personal chef. Since returning to the states and stepping into his role as the president of the Private Chef Association, Gerald has worked to bring his gastronomic prowess to the masses through Food Fun Adventure’s classes and tours. He passes along a visible passion for culinary fusion, which shines through in dishes blending French and Thai or American and German influences.

Culinary tours take participants to local sushi houses, steak houses, and bistros, each highlighting specialty dishes. When head chefs come out to greet their visitors, they often divulge culinary secrets and answer questions about curfew hours for free-range ingredients while doling out tapas and other small plates.

In a more hands-on culinary experience, customers gather in classes and learn to refine dishes based on a chosen theme. Using mostly local and organic ingredients in two kitchen classrooms, chefs show students how to craft delicacies such as scallion waffles with orange-zest chicken and tagine-roasted rack of lamb. In one kitchen, which doubles as an art gallery, knives flick through ingredients, and pots clatter at island stations and small burners. The company’s event center, Heaven, fills with chatter as up to 40 pairs of students filter in. Beneath projectors for screening chef demonstrations and documentaries about the life of a paring knife, separate kitchens equipped with ovens and burners fill with the bustle of creation, which gives way to reverent exhalations as patrons finally sample the fruits of their labor.

Orlando Guide

In a way, Orlando defies physics. Though maps place it in Central Florida, one step across its borders transplants visitors into a realm where imagination becomes reality. Known as the theme park capital of America, Orlando provides a destination where the tangible cityscape gives way to a fantastical realm, at nearly every turn, earning it a special place in the hearts of the billions of visitors who have ever set foot in one of its magical theme parks.

Orlando may be forever associated with the Walt Disney World® Theme Parks, which are now part of the world’s most-visited entertainment resort. It spans roughly 30,000 acres, encompassing four theme parks, two water parks, five golf courses, and the Downtown Disney® Marketplace. But the wealth of other iconic attractions is equally spellbinding; between Universal Studios Florida, the Kennedy Space Center, and SeaWorld, families will find very few gaps in their itineraries.

Those hoping to shake up the typical theme-park-dominated itinerary can head into downtown Orlando's vibrant arts district. The neighborhood boasts a wealth of concert halls, museums, and cultural marvels such as the CityArts Factory, a multifaceted patchwork of gallery spaces. The city's culinary scene is nothing to scoff at, either. Sand Lake Road, known as 'restaurant row,' offers tourists and locals a diverse medley of upscale restaurants and casual eateries serving everything from local seafood to globally-inspired cuisine.

Orlando's sunny weather is an attraction all its own, but it's yielded more than just suntans. Long before the area's theme parks blossomed across the city, it was the region's fertile citrus groves that defined Orlando's personality and prosperity. Orlando’s greater Lake County is still dotted with citrus farms, such as Showcase of Citrus, located roughly 30 miles outside of Orlando in Clermont. There, visitors can stroll through acres of citrus groves, pick their own fruit, and picnic beside a serene lake, making for a great day trip out of the city.
