ABOUT THE FINAL TABLE

Named the “Most Underrated Food City in America” by Condé Nast Traveler, Indianapolis is the perfect backdrop for Food Sports’ brightest hour. Ten finalists will arrive in the Circle City for this battle royale — ten victors who have already won the titles of: Bacon World Champion, World Barbecue Champion, World Burger Champion, World Chef Champion, World Dessert Champion, World Recipe Champion, World Sandwich Champion, World Seafood Champion and World Steak Champion. Over the course of two days, these food sport all-stars will be faced with three culinary challenges that are distinctly Indy. Who will be crowned the World Food Champion? Join us to find out! (see ticketing events below)

THE VENUE

Ivy Tech Community College

Formerly a hotel with the distinction of being where Elvis spent the night of what would be his final concert (at Market Square Arena in Indy), Ivy Tech Community College’s Culinary and Conference Center will be the battleground for this Ultimate Food Fight. Ivy Tech purchased the building in December, 2010, and has renovated it for classrooms, training, meetings, and conferences. The Culinary and Conference Center opened in August, 2012, and houses the college’s Hospitality Administration Program. The ten finalists will complete all three challenges in three state-of-the-art professional kitchens under the guidance and assistance of Ivy Tech’s knowledgeable staff. Ivy Tech Community College’s Culinary and Conference Center is located at 2820 N Meridian St, Indianapolis, IN 46208

THE CHAMPIONS

This year’s Final Table consists of home cooks, chefs AND pro teams representing the East Coast, West Coast and various points in between. Not only did these ten finalists win their category at the World Food Championships in November, then had to win a qualifying event to even get the chance to compete. Read about how these champs got to where they are now and how they plan to take home the big prize in Indy!
