World Food Championships return to the Alabama Beaches!

by Jay Ducote


Once again this year some of the greatest chefs and food sport contestants from around the country and even from around the world will be descending on Orange Beach, AL for the World Food Championships. Now in it's sixth year, and second in Alabama, the WFC has positioned itself as a proving ground for cooks and culinary personalities. This year's event takes place from November 8th to 12th.

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.

Check out this TV show from last year's WFC featuring yours truly as one of the three hosts for the competition!




I'll be back again this year to enjoy the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of victory. I know there are other Louisiana chefs who have punched their tickets on the path to become World Champions as well. It's guaranteed to be a great time, so book your hotel room in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach now so you can enjoy the action!
