In addition to becoming the Official Higher Education Partner, Dallas College is also being named as the official host and sponsor of World Food Championships’ Inaugural “Last Chance Qualifier” Chef Challenge, which is scheduled for October 10, 2021.
WFC will use the Last Chance Qualifier as a way to fill its remaining competitive spots in its 10 category championships: Bacon, Barbecue, Burger, Chef, Dessert, Recipe, Sandwich, Seafood, Soup and Steak. “We expect to see about ten of the best Dallas chefs competing in our tournament through this opportunity.” said Mike McCloud, CEO, World Food Championships. “With the help of Dallas College’s culinary program, we are excited to provide this opportunity for local chefs to earn their way into our event.”
