With 500+ teams registered for 2017, The World Food Championships is the largest culinary competition on the planet. The event gives home cooks, pro chefs and professional cook teams from all walks of life a chance to be seen on TV and win a share of a the largest prize purse in the Food Sport industry.
From burgers and BBQ, to sandwiches and bacon, there is a $10,000 winner in each of ten categories, all which culminate in a grand finale of epic food proportions at the Final Table.
To see how the action (and pressure) unfolds, check out one of our two nationally-syndicated seasons. In 2013, A&E produced six episodes from our Las Vegas beginnings for the FYI Channel. In 2015, the championship was shot in Florida for a series on Destination America (a Discovery Network channel). In 2016, Food Network shot a special around our Kids Invitation, called "Kid Chef Nation.
And just released, our 2016 Championship is now airing in select markets on all major networks throughout the Southeast (click here for the schedule). The new show, entitled "Food, Fame & Fortune," will also be available online starting October 1st.
