Just got off the phone with Iron Chef, Supermom Cat Cora. She’s working with Walt Disney World on a new signature restaurant concept for the theme park. Expect it to have the energetic, fresh, family-friendly vibe Cora is known for. I wouldn’t be surprised if the menu reflects her Greek and Mississippi roots. But don’t expect her to join the celebrity enclave in Central Florida. “I’m very much a California girl,” says Cora. “I love the east coast and I’m very lucky that my job involves a lot of travel — so I get to enjoy it often. But for our family, California is home.”
If the menu is anything like the food Cat Cora creates on the Food Network show Iron Chef America, then I can’t wait for this restaurant to open. The Orlando Sentinel reports they’re shooting for a 2010 opening.
