It’s THE showcase of the best and brightest chefs and home cooks who converge on Missouri to compete for a Golden Ticket to the World Food Championshipsps – a shot at being #1 in the world and a chance to win $100,000.
Your Culinary Passport puts you in the middle of the action as you cheer on your favorite chef from cutting board to plate-up! This culinary competition of live fire and cool beats has you sipping a glass of Chandon USA bubbles from the moment you arrive. Nosh on artisan cheeses, charcuterie, and farm-fresh veggie delights while you craft your own flavors for your cocktail at our bespoke bar, all while elevating your Instagram game getting up close and personal to the cooking action! Kaldi’s Coffee Roasting Co. will be tapping their nitro brew as the music gets underway, so don’t miss a minute of the experience and come see what all the fuss is about.
From James Beard nominees to home chefs on a mission, this one-of-a-kind culinary extravaganza will blow your tastebuds away! Cast your vote for the Bite of the Nite, tasting each chefs’ dish while noted culinary celebrity judges determine the Golden Ticket winner using the night’s featured ingredient, BACON!
