WFC’s Main Event Recipe Deadline Draws Near


WFC’s Main Event Recipe Deadline Draws Near

As the excitement builds for the world’s largest food fight, cooks are in deep preparation perfecting their recipes for the World Food Championships (WFC) in Dallas, Texas, this October. As a part of their prep, cooks need to be aware of the deadlines quickly approaching for WFC’s Main Event. Competitors should put the finishing touches on their competition dishes in the next few weeks in order to meet the recipe deadline on September 18, 2019. 

Competitors should note that the recipe they submit plays a large role in WFC’s proprietary judging, the E.A.T.™ Methodology – Execution,  Appearance, and Taste. The execution portion of the score is based on the provided name of the recipe submission. For example, if the recipe states “Sweet & Savory Cowboy Burger” and the burger does not have a sweet taste, points may be deducted on execution. 

“A Food Champ’s recipe can make or break their performance during the tournament,” said Mike McCloud, CEO and president of WFC. “I highly encourage cooks to think through how they are describing their dish for the judges and review our E.A.T.™ Methodology page as they write out their recipes.”  

The name of the recipe should be specific to the flavors the judges will taste, however for the actual recipe, it is not necessary to include exact measurements of the ingredients. Failure to submit your recipe by the deadline will result in a three-point deduction at this year’s championships. Click here to review WFC’s official rules.
