The road to the 2014 World Food Championships is officially open, and today the WFC announced that the event will be even bigger this year thanks to the addition of two new categories.
The field for the 2014 event will be expanded to nine categories with 550 competitor spots. Returning categories include: Barbecue, Chili, Sandwich, Burger, Dessert, Bacon and Recipe, while Pasta and Seafood have been added as the two new categories. As in years past, the Recipe category is based on a theme of food, and this year that theme will be Cheese.
In addition to making the nine categories public today, the World Food Championships is excited to extend the first competitor invitations to the Top 10 competitors from each category from 2013! If you were one of those finalists, be on the lookout for a registration email coming your way soon.
