Can you make a bacon dish that’s worth $100,000?
Andreann Geise certainly thinks she can, and she is planning to prove it. Geise, from Socastee, South Caroline, is competing in the world’s largest food fight. She qualified for the world’s largest event in Food Sport – the World Food Championships (WFC), and from November 9-15 she will be competing for a $300,000 prize purse and the title of 2016 World Food Champion in Orange Beach, Alabama.
Now in its fifth year, The World Food Championships platform ranges from live-event competitions to a robust multimedia platform that helps pro chefs, home cooks, and competition teams achieve food fame and fortune as TV’s next big food stars.
Andreann’s team, My-Big-Fat-Greek-Kitchen.com is one of 430 from across the world who will be seeking the ultimate food crown. She won the chance to compete at WFC by winning Just A Pinch’s online recipe contest. She will now have a shot at a major payday at WFC, where $100,000 is awarded for the best dish overall and $10,000 is awarded in nine different categories: BBQ, Chili, Dessert, Bacon, Sandwich, Seafood, Burger, Steak, and Recipe.
“Winning my category would be an incredible feat,” said Geise “But winning the whole tournament with the best dish would be a dream come true!”

Andreann is also one of 13 people chosen to do talks and showcase demonstrations at this year’s event.
There’s also a good chance that Geise will be seen on TV, as this event is filmed for national cable television each year. It has been seen on the A&E Network as well as the Discovery Network.
