In April 2018 Simply Gourmand qualified to compete at the World Food Championships by winning a golden ticket for Best Dessert at Bacon Bash in Royal Oak! Our winning dish was a trio of cheesecakes that included our Maple Bourbon Bacon Pecan, Chocolate Bourbon Bacon, and Irish Car Bomb.

“The World Food Championships is the largest competition in Food Sport. Since its debut in 2012, WFC has given birth to 30 TV food stars, awarded more than $1.5 million in prize money, garnered more than 5.7 billion media impressions, and connected 150+ food brands with food fans, food bloggers, and food media. “( https://worldfoodchampionships.com/, 2018)

Our team consists of Jessica Gourieux and a team of volunteers that includes Janel Dombrowski, Elizabeth Weisenberger,  and Taylor O’Connor.

This year the competition is in Orange Beach, Alabama on November 7-11, 2018. We will be competing in the Dessert Category against 38 other chefs and home cooks from across the world.

We are excited to have this amazing opportunity to compete in the world’s largest food sports event. Simply Gourmand is a small home bakery business and will need your support to help with our accommodations and expenses. The registration fee has already been paid. However, we are responsible for all of our expenses, our travel expenses, accommodations, and meals we have estimated to be approximately $5,000.  We are asking family and friends to help out in any way possible, as every little bit helps. If you choose to sponsor Team Simply Gourmand this gift will not go unrecognized nor unappreciated as we work our hardest to reach our goal, which is the WFC Championship.

The 3rd round is an infused ingredient dish which means that we can make whatever we want as long as it uses the specific ingredient which for this round is at least one of ten different Winemaker Wines
plus this year they have added some bonus ingredients that if we use could win more prize money
