Dubbing itself a "foodies paradise", the all-you-can-eat, mixed-drink inclusive event Rib, Roast, Rum & More is a sure win.

Tomorrow, patrons will be able to chow down on an array of delicious offerings, including their signature Appleton Rum BBQ Ribs, and Campari mesquite jerked pork, pan-jerked chicken, beer-braised beef, and curried goat, as well as a succulent fish in foil and creamy pastas for the non-meat eaters among us.

Backed by newcomers Caribbean Producers Jamaica (CPJ), the organisers, Knott Francis Eventures (KFE), are excited about the company's decision to adopt their patron's second favourite food - The Pasta Station - as a way of showcasing the diversity of their products.

KFE's Executive Chef Alex 'D' Great shares with us his recipe for Mexican cheddar fettuccine, using products primarily found in CPJ Market. Give it a try. It's finger-licking good.

While desserts have always been a feature at this event, KFE will be showcasing their talents by featuring their in house patisserie - Sandreika Gordon, and her use of the Kerry Gold Butter, also distributed by CPJ, in the creation of her delectable treats.

KFE encourages patrons to come out for the food but stay for the fun, as Nigel Swaby of Elevate Entertainment promises to keep patrons moving and grooving throughout the night.
