Hi everyone!

Delicious Disney: Disneyland: Recipes & Stories from The Happiest Place on Earth” is the next official Disney Parks cookbook from Pam Brandon, and will be a “cookbook-meets-culinary-history coffee table book”. The history aspect will be from author and researcher Marcy Carriker Smothers and the Staff of the Walt Disney Archives.  “Delicious Disney: Disneyland” is scheduled to release November 7th, 2023 and is available for preorder. A temporary (not final) cover has been revealed.
This Disneyland cookbook comes on the heels of “The Official Disney Parks Cookbook: 101 Magical Recipes from the Delicious Disney Series“, which released on February 7th, 2023. There are fewer recipes in “Delicious Disney: Disneyland“, with a total of 60 (The newest “The Official Disney Parks Cookbook” has 101), but the Disneyland cookbook includes history where “The Official Disney Parks Cookbook” does not.
