About World Food Championships
Coming to Fair Park this November 5-7, the World Food Championships (WFC) is the highest stakes food competition in the world. This multi-day, live event culinary competition showcases some of the world’s best cooks who compete for food, fame and fortune in 10 categories (Bacon, Barbecue, Burger, Chef, Dessert, Recipe, Sandwich, Seafood, Soup and Steak). In 2019, more than 450 culinary teams from 11 countries and 42 American states competed in WFCâ€™s Main Event. In August, the 10 Category Champs went head-to-head for a $100,000 bonus that determined a new World Food Champion in a TV special called The Final Table: Indianapolis.Â While contestants have to earn their way into WFC by winning a Golden Ticket at a previous competition, potential judges are welcome to take WFCâ€™s online certification course that explains the E.A.T. methodology. Certified judges then request and receive available seats at the next scheduled WFC event. ClickÂ hereÂ to learn more about getting certified.
