Try Something New at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival at Walt Disney World Resort

OK, where else can you boldly taste curry goat? Roti? Sweet cornmeal porridge? You could head to a Jamaican restaurant and hope this classic is on the menu or you could sign up for a cooking demo with Chef Charles Mattocks, nephew of legendary reggae singer Bob Marley, who knows a thing or two about Caribbean cooking.

Chef Charles Mattocks Coming to Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

“It tastes a lot like lamb,” says Mattocks. “I like to make something a little different, something my guests may never have tasted.” He says the goat meat is sweet and tender, “like a high-New York strip steak with a twist of lamb.”

He’ll show you how to make roti, a sort of flatbread that great for “sopping up the gravy,” says Mattocks. And a little side of porridge which Jamaicans love as an appetizer with dinner.

C’mon, give it a try! Mattocks will be on stage at the Kitchen Memories event from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, Oct. 28. To book the event, go to Epcot theme park admission is required. You also can call 407-WDW-FEST.
