Viva la Música is in full swing at SeaWorld Orlando, and yesterday morning I was invited to a media preview to try out the Latin-influenced menu being offered to guests attending the festival.
Seaworld Orlando’s Executive Chef Hector Colon was on hand to introduce the food and answer any questions we had. I interviewed Chef Colon on video for The Disney Blog, which I was representing, and he said he picked dishes which reflected traditional and authentic Latin flavors and recipes.
