How You Can Become Involved In The World’s Largest Food Sport Event

The World Food Championships (WFC), Dallas’ newest foodie festival, is only a few months away from making its debut October 16-20 at Reunion Tower Lawn. Leading up to the Main Event, WFC has presented opportunities for locals and surrounding areas to get involved.

Judge the World’s BEST Culinary Dishes:

WFC uses its own proprietary methodology (referred to as the E.A.T.™ method) to judge its competition dishes: Execution, Appearance and Taste. In order to become E.A.T.™ certified, judges must first attend a “Licensed To E.A.T.™” course where a Food Sport Ambassador will instruct, educate and discuss everything you need to know about scoring championship-caliber dishes.

While the class is based around educational purposes, typically it also serves as a party where Food Sports’ newest fans can mix and mingle. Most courses will also include a tasty food samples in order for attendees to test out their new food judging skills!

Upon completion of the course, attendees will be eligible to judge the world’s tastiest, best dishes at WFC’s Main Event this October in Dallas, Texas. Sign up to judge this prestigious event at
