Who wants a Golden Ticket??

Who loves a good competition? Are you a home cook who loves the thrill of a good contest? Ever heard of the World Food Championship? Looking to grab a Golden Ticket for yourself? Oh friends, ohhhh friends.....have I got great news for you! Sinful Food is holding their first recipe contest and it's YOUR chance to score a Golden Ticket!! 

Ok first of all, let's talk about the World Food Championship. This annual cooking event welcomes cooks from all over the world to compete on the world's largest cooking stage. Known as the Ultimate Food Fight Experience, the WFC is an international competition in which everyone from top chefs to home cooks have a chance to fight their peers for huge prizes, up to $100,000! More than 30 food tv stars have had their careers launched by these competitions. Unlike many recipe contests, you have to win your way in to the WFC, by winning local and regional contests and eventually, a Golden Ticket. Believe me when I say this is big- it's BIG. The WFC is also filmed by A&E Network and is broadcast on FYI Network so people like me get to watch friends fight it out. I call the WFC the Olympics of Food, and it really is!!

For the 2017 competition, which will take place on November 8 through 14, in Orange Beach, Alabama and Sinful Food is giving one very lucky winner a passport to foodie heaven- a Golden Ticket.

So, back to the contest. Let's get the legal stuff out of the way-
