WFC Places A Sure Bet with Wind Creek Casino & Hotel, Atmore


WFC Places A Sure Bet with Wind Creek Casino & Hotel, Atmore

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. – (July 8, 2016) Foodies headed to Orange Beach, AL in November can now plan on more “fun and action” for the 5th Annual World Food Championships. WFC announced today that Wind Creek Casino & Hotel Atmore has become the Official Casino Partner of the 2016 Ultimate Food Fight. Whether you want to enjoy a live show, hit the bowling alley, or try your luck at the casino floor, Wind Creek Atmore has activities everyone can enjoy just a short drive North of WFC’s official host site, The Wharf. 

Turns out that the alliance between Wind Creek and WFC is a strategic one as well. The 4-Star facility in Atmore, part of a three-casino development by Wind Creek Hospitality, has a special focus on culinary entertainment. With both hands-on classes and a “Table in a Kitchen” dinner series, guests at Wind Creek Atmore are definite winners when it comes to enjoying fine dining and culinary experiences.

“We are so excited to partner with WFC as it celebrates its 5th Anniversary,” said Tim Ramer, Property Manager of Wind Creek Atmore. “We have the opportunity to offer WFC competitors a relaxing getaway from the stresses of the competition, as well as the ability to introduce foodies of all types to an awesome culinary experience.”

WFC’s new partnership with Wind Creek Atmore will also include a Chef Challenge that will qualify one winning chef into the World Chef Challenge, which is one of WFC’s more unique challenges during the championship week. In tandem with the Chef Challenge, Wind Creek Atmore will also host a Food Champ Judging Class to certify judges in WFC’s E.A.T. Methodology.

This particular Food Champ Judging Class will be the last chance for foodies to become judges at the 2016 WFC, as all of the opening category judge spots are now full. Wind Creek Atmore will host the class on Sept. 12, kicking off the exclusive judging class with a reception and champagne toast on Sunday, Sept 11. Attendees will have the opportunity to not only learn how to judge at WFC, but also will get to taste and rank custom dishes from three of Alabama’s best chefs. Details on how to register for the class, which will be limited to 48 people, will be released soon on Wind Creek’s web site.

But we’ve never worked with one that has such a beautiful teaching and learning facility for culinary like Wind Creek Atmore does. I believe our 2016 game plan is just the beginning of something very special for both Food Sport and foodies throughout the nation.”
