Franklin resident, Judy Beaudin, owner of Scrumptious Catering will be one of more than 1,500 chefs that will meet Oct. 16-20 at the Reunion Tower Lawn in Dallas, Texas for the culinary battle of their lives — with a chance to win more than $350,000 in cash and prizes, the biggest payout in Food Sport history.
Beaudin, who placed 4th in the 2018 World Dessert Championships, will be one of several competitors representing Tennessee at the Ultimate Food Fight, and the only one from Williamson County.
“Teams from more than 40 states and 15 countries will enter one of our ten competition categories to earn their way to a title and a huge TV opportunity,” said Mike McCloud, the CEO and official Commissioner of the event. “The competition will be more intense than ever this year, and ten incredible chefs or home cooks are going to walk away with $10,000 cash!” These ten will move on to compete for the $100,000 grand prize.
Competitors will cook on-site during timed events to create a dish for the ultimate taste test by E.A.T™ certified Food Sport judges. The ten categories include Bacon, Barbecue, Burger, Chef, Chili, Dessert, Recipe, Sandwich, Seafood, and Steak.
Beaudin will be returning to compete in the Dessert Category, fighting to take the top spot this year. She earned a coveted spot into this year’s WFC with her Top 10 Dessert placement at last year’s competition in Orange Beach, AL.
“I am so excited for the opportunity to compete in the world’s largest food fight once again this year,” Beaudin said. “It’s a huge honor to have earned a spot to compete alongside some of the most talented chefs and home cooks in the country and world. We are competitors, but we are also one giant family who come together once a year to fight with all we’ve got and live out our collective passion for Food Sport, battling for the win, but ultimately leaving with priceless friendships and memories made.”
