DALLAS, Texas, Oct. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With more than $350,000 up for grabs, there's little wonder why 1,500+ cooks are traveling into Dallas next week to compete at the 8th Annual World Food Championships (WFC). But how do regular foodies score a big win at this unique "Food Sport" event? Easy. They bring an appetite and download the event's official phone app.
According to WFC’s president Mike McCloud, more than 100,000 pounds of food will be sampled out at no charge once attendees enter the event. He also pointed out that almost $15,000 of cooking appliances and gadgets will be given out through quick surveys and check-ins on site throughout the week.
"This is the biggest food competition in the world," McCloud added. "And we want to make sure that it's the biggest food fest and fun event for foodies from all walks of life. That's why we're giving away full cooking sets, custom knives, a Kamado Joe, and much more, as our attendees enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of over 100 sampling companies at WFC."
WFC was started in 2012. Since its debut the five-day culinary competition as given birth to 30 TV food stars, awarded more than $2 million in prize money, garnered more than 6.9 billion media impressions and connected 150+ food brands with food fans, food bloggers, and food media.
