WFC’s 2022 Sponsors are ‘Panning’ Out


WFC’s 2022 Sponsors are ‘Panning’ Out

When hundreds of thousands of dollars are up for grabs, having the best cooking tools is one of the key ingredients for a Food Champ to excel at the World Food Championships. That’s why the leader in Food Sport is excited to announce that Gotham™ Steel will return to Dallas, TX this year for the 10th Anniversary to ensure all competitors have access to quality pans, pots and other key cookware products.

As WFC’s Official Cookware, this “as seen on TV” fan favorite will once again be providing a complete set of its latest technology in pots and pans for each team to utilize in the competition: a 7-quart pot, 5-quart pot, 3-quart pot and 12.5” pan, all with custom lids. 

“As we head into our most celebrated year of WFC, Gotham continues to be a critical partner and piece of the Food Sport puzzle,” said Mike McCloud, President and CEO of WFC. “Food Champs everywhere truly appreciate their commitment and passion to not just Food Sport, but to the entire food industry.”

During its five consecutive years of serving as a WFC sponsor, Gotham™ Steel has created a loyal following from competition cooks. Its non-stick products will not only be easily available for all competitors, but also to attendees as Gotham™ Steel will feature educational cooking demonstrations and giveaways throughout the foodie festival.

“We are so excited to continue our partnership with WFC to further assist talented cooks in their culinary journey," said Marvin Levy from Gotham™ Steel. “We can’t wait to see what dishes WFC’s talented field of Food Sport competitors serve up using our products at this year’s tournament in Dallas."


Stay tuned for more partnership announcements for the upcoming WFC 2022 Main Event, which will feature dozens of past category champions and teams from all over the world. Ticketing options for the foodie event, including Best of the Fest tasting opportunities, will be released soon.

In the meantime, stay up-to-date on all culinary competition news, by following the World Food Championships on Twitter (@WorldFoodChamp), Facebook and Instagram (@WorldFoodChampionships).

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, Dessert, Rice/Noodles, Sandwich, Seafood, Soup, Steak and Vegetarian). In 2021, more than 300 culinary teams from 5 countries and 40 American states competed in WFC’s Main Event. The Champions of each category will now face their next challenge called The Final Table, which will be held at South Carolina's Lake Murray Country in late April (Click here to request an invitation to the event). 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.
