This Disneyland cookbook is a lot of fun

My daughter and I love Disneyland, where dining can be a hassle. Over the years, however, we've come to love a number of favorite snacks, items, and dishes around the parks. This cookbook captures a surprising number of them.

The Disneyland signature Monte Cristo, Mickey beignets, and a homemade Dole Whip all make the list. For my kid, it is not a day at Disneyland without a Dole Whip. We've also started making the Grilled Salmon with Mango Chutney quite frequently. While I prefer to Sous Vide and serve the salmon, we both love the horseradish and Mango Chutney sauce.
