Thought You’d Never Ask – A Collection of WDW Dining recipes from the early years

The first publication of a book of Walt Disney World recipes was in 1979. That year Dorothy Chapman, the food critic for the Orlando Sentinel, compiled some of the most requested recipes from Central Florida restaurants In “Thought You’d Never Ask”.She published weekly columns in the Sentinel and many of the recipes also appeared there. A dutiful volunteer archivist has been scanning those individual recipe publications in an ongoing process. We are pleased today to bring you, in their entirety, 45 pages listing over 100 recipes from the Vacation Kingdom’s first 8 years. George Taylor at Imaginerding did a nice writeup on Chapman’s followup 1983 edition (sans recipes) so we’ll be bringing those to you in a future post:

Enjoy and if you make any of the recipes, please let us know and send pictures!
