Mississippi native Cat Cora partners with Disney to open Kouzzina

As the first and only female Iron Chef, Cat Cora took the old saying “I’m going to Disney World” to heart. She began working with the company in 2008 and further strengthened her relationship with Disney by opening a restaurant at Disney’s BoardWalk at the Walt Disney World Resort.

The Mississippi native partnered with Disney to open Kouzzina by Cat Cora in September 2009. Her first table-service restaurant celebrates both her Greek and Mississippi heritage.

Born to a family of Greek restaurateurs in Jackson, Miss., Cora grew up immersed in two different and flavorful cultures. Growing up in Mississippi fueled her passion for great food, and she has taken from that unique background the kitchen “know-how” handed down through generations
