Our First World Food Championships
We’re excited to announce that Fifth & Cherry® is an Official Product Sponsor of the 2019 World Food Championships (WFC) being held in Dallas, October 16-20! All of the competitors will be using our original 14-inch premium end grain cherry cutting boards at their Kitchen Arena station throughout the competition.
We will also be exhibiting in the Innovation Station during the Main Event. If you are competing or plan to attend the WFC this year, please stop by our booth to say hello and receive a special WFC event discount. We’ll be introducing two new products at the event, so come be the first to order them before they sell out on our website!
What is the World Food Championships?
The World Food Championships is the largest competition in Food Sport, where grand champions of previous events convene for a chance at winning the ultimate food crown and a share of hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money. The World Food Championships is also the springboard for many up and coming culinary stars and home cooks as they seek TV fame through many well-known food shows and acting opportunities.
The 2018 WFC boasted the largest Food Sport tournament in history, with over 1500 contestants nearly 500 official teams. They came from 42 American states and 12 countries to compete, while more than 30,000 foodies watched and enjoyed the heat of the battle unfold in 10 official categories.
The WFC is a tremendous opportunity to see many of the world’s best chefs, pitmasters, and bakers in action. Attendees will have the chance to learn tips and tricks straight from the mouths of the Masters, and even try some world championship-level food. You can learn more about the event here.
