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.

Best of luck to our 2023 competitors!
HEAD COOK: Judy Beaudin
COMPETITION: World Burger Championship
A Dessert competitor in the World Food Championships since 2018, it was an incredible honor to place 4th in the World Dessert Championships my first year. In 2020, it was so great to get to compete in WFC's Virtual Food Sport competition while all of us were staying home and live competitions were halted. Winning first place in the the Holiday Happy Hour Appetizer & Cocktail Pairing category ended a tough year on a positive note. After being a 2 time Dessert Category competitor, Team Scrumptious switched gears in 2022 to take on the World Burger Championships. By my side in our first burger competition ever, was my amazing sous chef and husband...the Burger Boss himself, Jeff Beaudin. We made a good showing for our first time up against some of the best burger chefs and cooks in the World. We are thrilled to return to compete again in Burger at the 20223 World Food Championships in Dallas! Prior to COVID19, my catering business, Scrumptious Catering Company, kept me busy in the Nashville and Franklin, Tennessee area primarily for a major healthcare operator here. These days I’ve turned my attention back to the simple art of creating great food and devoting time to my newest endeavor: food writing! I recently have begun writing a monthly feature article for our local Franklin Lifestyle Magazine where I share my seasonal recipe creations plus photos and tips for presentation and serving.
