Food Network fans know celebrity chef Maneet Chauhan as a judge on “Chopped,”and foodies in the Nashville, TN, area are familiar with her restaurant, Chauhan Ale and Masala House. On September 30, visitors to the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival at Walt Disney World got to meet her in person at the first of three Rockin’ Burger Block Parties scheduled for 2016.

Food Network chef creates a burger for Epcot International Food and Wine Festival

Chef Chauhan created a special chicken masala burger just for the Epcot event. While she brought her family to Walt Disney World for their first ever visit, she set aside leisure time to roll up her sleeves and work alongside the team serving up her creation at the Rockin’ Burger Block Party.

She also took time to chat with the guests who stopped by and even to give interviews, as you can see in the video below:

The Rockin’ Burger Block Party featured non-stop entertainment on stage throughout the event, with a DJ and live music from the band American Martian. Chef Chauhan also found time to take the stage and share some of her background and her thoughts about being at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. You can see her appearances, as well as the award ceremony at the end of the night that named the best burger, in the video below. Two more burgers will emerge victorious at the two remaining parties in October and November.
