Yesterday things got real exciting for teams slated to compete in the Best Memphis Burger main cooking competition. The World Food Championships contacted Best Memphis Burger Fest festival organizers informing them that the Best Memphis Burger Fest winner will automatically qualify to compete at the World Food Championships.
At the World Burger Championship, 50 of the world’s best hamburgers and their cooks, as determined by competitions and publications across the country, will receive automatic invitations to enter and compete at The World Food Championships. This is an invitation only competition and you have to be one of the best to go up against the best.
The World Food Championships, featuring Adam Richman, will take place, in Las Vegas, at Bally’s, Paris and Caesars Palace, on Nov 1-4, 2012. Winners of the biggest and best food competitions and contests will be pitted against each other for a championship title and a total prize purse of $300,000.
You probably know from Adam Richman’s from the Travel Channel’s Best Sandwich in America. It’s a new American food reality television series that premiered on June 6, 2012. The program is hosted by actor and food enthusiast Adam Richman. In each episode, Richman samples what he considers to be the best sandwiches across the country, chooses a regional favorite, and then pits the winners against each other to find America’s No. 1 sandwich. He used to host the Travel Channel’s Man vs. Food, and even had a run-in with Best Memphis Burger Fest sponsor, Kooky Canuck and his 7.5 lb Kookamonga Burger. As host for The World Food Championships, Richman will guide event participants and a general audience through each level of the competitive action.
This is a huge honor for the Best Memphis Burger Fest and an amazing opportunity for competing teams to take their creation to the big dance to compete for a world title and a hefty cash prize. The winning Best Memphis Burger team will be responsible to their own travel, hotel and entry fees, but the prestige of winning would certainly be worth any expense. If you can grill an awesome burger, and you’ve been debating whether or not to enter this competition, I believe your incentive is here. Winning Best Memphis Burger Fest is your ticket to becoming World Champion.
