Mickey's Gourmet Cookbook: Most Popular Recipes from Walt Disney World & Disneyland

Hyperion Books, Author, Disney, Author Disney Editions $11.95 (304p) ISBN 978-0-7868-8016-4
Gathered from Disney theme parks and vacation hotels in Canada, Europe, Mexico, Japan, the U.K., the Caribbean and even further afield, the recipes here are fairly basic, and the directions are briskly minimal. So if you have a favorite haunt from your recent holidays, you'll probably be able to reconjure some of the fare from there by paging through this. Although the recipes are organized by genre (poultry; breads), a restaurant index provides easy access to remembered hot spots. As for the food if you haven't toured a Disney resort: it may disappoint in this intercontinental but still fairly no-frills assortment. What makes the ``Contemporary French Toast'' contemporary, for instance? The suggested sourdough bread, perhaps; use of cinnamon; optional syrup, butter; but that's about it. Recipes do not necessarily address health concerns. For a four-person serving, would fat-conscious Americans be likely to down a fettucine dish that called for four cups of heavy cream and two cups of grated cheese, as well as lobster meat? It's up to us. (Aug.)
