The World Food Championships (WFC) claims to be the largest competition in food sport, where champions convene in Kissimmee, Florida, for a chance at winning the ultimate food crown and a share of $300,000. The World Food Championships media initiative ranges from live-event integration and activations to a robust multimedia platform that serves culinary stars, home cooks, brands and destinations.
One chef invited to attend this year’s event is Bald Headed Bistro‘s Executive Chef Eric Fulkerson. Fulkerson previously served as the Chef de Cuisine at Reynolds Plantation where he once made lunch for Laura Bush. He is a graduate of Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University in Charleston, South Carolina. Prior to joining Reynolds Plantation, Fulkerson was Sous Chef at Osprey Point Restaurant at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina.
He recently won the Five Star Food Fight at the Chattanooga Market and says, “I’m looking forward to this event.” The Bald Headed Bistro is East Tennessee’s fine Western dining destination.
In three short years, WFC has awarded more than $1 million in prizes and money, spawned a TV series, garnered more than $5 billion in media impressions and launched numerous professional careers for successful contestants.
Nowhere in the culinary landscape is the spirit of integration and engagement more alive than at the World Food Championships, where the world’s most creative food champions face off for pride and culinary glory. In 2014, the World Food Championships aired as a six-episode reality series on the A&E Network’s FYI Network.
Now contestants are getting ready for the high-stakes, high-reward culinary competition to hit the Sunshine State from November 3 through November 10, 2015.
