We're excited to see the field of competitors who have already won their golden ticket and registered to compete at the 2022 World Food Championships. And we are always proud to announce our special guests and celebrity judges participating in our judging events across the nation - we're sure the championship food certainly helps! Best of luck to our 2022 competitors!


Team Santa Barbara Strong

HEAD COOK: George Levinthal

COMPETITION: World Burger Championship

After not competing last year as we remodeled our house, I can't wait to get back into Kitchen Arena and repeat my success in 2016. Hopefully even better. 10th after the first round was awesome but I know I can do more. I've always have loved to cook, jumped into the world of competition cooking a number of years ago and have had my successes: Two-time winner in the L.A. Times Battle of the Burgers, a three-time winner in The Santa Barbara Independent's Annual BBQ Contest, three recipes published in a national magazine and a trip to New York to tape a segment of a show on the Cooking Channel. Competing against former World Burger Champs, profession chefs and competition teams my work is cut out for us but I know we can and will prevail. I want to prove that home cooks can compete on an equal level with the pros. Let's get this party started!
