Watch These Grilling Grannies Give It Their All at the World Food Championships This Weekend

Nothing brings out the passion, performance and profound creativity from chefs and award-winning cooks like the World Food Championships. The World Food Championships is the largest competition in Food Sport, where grand champions of previous events convene for a chance at winning the ultimate food crown and a share of hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money. It’s the springboard for many up-and-coming culinary stars and home cooks as they seek TV fame through many well-known food shows and acting opportunities.

One of our favorite competitions of the weekend-long event, Granny Grilling, is taking place at Reunion Tower on Saturday, October 19th at 9:00 AM. As seen on Delish, the Granny Grilling Challenge is back by popular demand and will be better than ever! General admission ticket holders will witness Food Network chefs go head-to-head in a heated cook-off challenge – Granny-style. Select Grandmas will be tasked with creating a tasty dish with the hope that it will please the panel of kid judges. The Granny Grilling Champion of this event will receive a Grandma-themed trophy, bragging rights and a Golden Ticket for WFC 2020!

After the main event, WFC knows how to throw a barbecue bash, unlike anything you have ever seen!

This year, they are taking it up a notch and making it even bigger, in true Texas style. Thousands of pounds of meat will be smoked by the hottest ceramic grills and barbecuing tools on the market for foodies to enjoy! Pitmasters and celebrity chefs will show off their favorite products and maybe even give out some professional tips and tricks.

If you love food, there’s no better place to spend your Saturday than at the World Food Championships. General admission, day-of tickets are $10. Prices will increase the day of the event when purchased at the gate. For tickets and more information, please visit
