WFC Announces Official Chef Partnership With Chef’s Roll


WFC Announces Official Chef Partnership With Chef’s Roll

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 26, 2016) – Presentation is everything...but in Food Sport, so is skill, execution and performance. That’s why Chef’s Roll – a global platform for professional chefs – has teamed up with World Food Championships for a multi-faceted partnership at this year’s event at The Wharf in Orange Beach, Alabama November 8-15.

Chef’s Roll ( has been named the Official Chef Partner of the 2016 World Food Championships, as well as Presenting Partner of the World Chef Challenge.

The World Chef Challenge, a featured event at WFC since its beginning, showcases professional chefs from across the nation and around the world in a unique culinary competition. A select field of 21 chefs will face off in a “triple threat” tournament-style format, with the winner taking home more than $10,000 in cash and prizes.

Chef’s Roll will use its online platform and Chef’s Plate events as the exclusive gateway into the World Chef Challenge, which is being modified this year to include mystery ingredients. Participating chefs, as well as invited guests, will have a chance to learn about these ingredients in a special VIP experience produced by Chef’s Roll throughout the championship week.

“We have enjoyed our relationship with Chef’s Roll for several years, and we are thrilled to expand it this year for an even better experience and challenge for Top Chefs as they enter the Ultimate Food Fight,” said WFC’s CEO Mike McCloud. “Our goal is to make WFC bigger and better each year, and we know this new partnership will help us achieve that.”
