Dining with Deb Disney Style

The owner of her own catering business for years, the self taught cook has catered for everything from the local Elks Lodges and High Schools to the Atlantic County Officials.  Her private themed parties of up to 150 guests were well known as well as cooking for many celebrities.  She has had the pleasure of knowing and meeting many wonderful chefs and cooks (and learned a few techniques from!) such as Chef Robert Irvine, Melissa D'Arabian, Sunny Anderson, Paula Deen, Pat and Gina Neely and Guy Fieri.  Deb has also been a field editor for Taste of Home Magazine for the last 8 years and she does as much cooking for her community as she can to help out.  Deb also helps manage many Facebook pages that have to do with the various Disney lounges including the most recent, Friends of Disney Dining and Libations.
