We're excited to see the field of competitors who have already won their golden ticket and registered to compete at the 2023 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 2023 competitors!
HEAD COOK: Helen Fields
COMPETITION: World Dessert Championship
Helen was bitten by the blue ribbon bug at the age of 9 after entering her prize-winning cookies in the county youth fair. She loves the excitement of competition and is still chasing (and winning) blue ribbons today, primarily at the State Fair of Texas. As a retired travel agency owner, she has traveled extensively and enjoys bringing home new tastes to her kitchen. She lives in Paradise with her husband, where their home (and kitchen) is often overrun with their four grandchildren. Always an inquisitive and competitive spirit, Helen fills her days with family, reading, creating recipes, entering cooking competitions and volunteering with a group that provides birthday parties for homeless children. As 5th place in Dessert Category at 2016 World Food Championships, she's excited to compete this year in her home state. Welcome to Dallas WFC!
