DALLAS – The 9th Annual World Food Championships (WFC) was back in Dallas this weekend, where the largest competition in Food Sport brought serious firepower in the form of celebrity chefs and TV cooks. An all-star culinary line-up was one of many reasons that foodies make their way to Fair Park to spend their first November weekend, in addition to great events like BBQ Ranch, Brunch Bar, Bourb’N’Que, Granny Grilling, Biscuits & Jampionship and more. At stake: over $350,000 in prize money for competitors, but an unforgettable food experience for foodies.
While these culinary stars range from award-winning chefs to champion competitors to entrepreneurs, they all have one thing in common– a love and passion for Food Sport.
“The World Food Championships is like ‘the Oscars’ of Food Sport, and we are rolling out the red carpet to celebrate the 9th Annual Ultimate Food Fest,” said Mike McCloud, President and CEO of WFC. “With these culinary celebrities in attendance on top of the hundreds of competitors and thousands of unique dishes that will be produced, this event is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.”

About World Food Championships
The World Food Championships (WFC) is the highest stakes food competition in the world. This multi-day, live event culinary competition showcases some of the world’s best cooks who compete for food, fame and fortune in 10 categories (Bacon, Barbecue, Burger, Chef, Dessert, Recipe, Sandwich, Seafood, Soup and Steak). In 2019, more than 450 culinary teams from 11 countries and 42 American states competed in WFC’s Main Event. In August, the 10 Category Champs went head-to-head for a $100,000 bonus that determined a new World Food Champion in a TV special called The Final Table: Indianapolis. While contestants have to earn their way into WFC by winning a Golden Ticket at a previous competition, potential judges are welcome to take WFC’s online certification course that explains the E.A.T.™ methodology. Certified judges then request and receive available seats at the next scheduled WFC event. Click here to learn more about getting certified.
