LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) November 12, 2014
This year, Gunter Wilhelm®, the leading cutlery used by top celebrity chefs such as Maneet Chauhan from Chopped, as well as the iconic White House Chef Tour™ (White House, Vice President’s residence, Camp David, etc.), has been selected as the official cutlery of the third annual World Food Championships on November 12th-18th, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This competition is held annually with over 500 chefs participating from every kitchen corner; from the home cook to world-renowned professionals. Contestants compete for the title of World Food Champion and a grand prize of $100,000.
After the competitors face off, slicing and dicing in several different food categories such as barbecue, burger, seafood and cheese, there is a Final Table faceoff that is held in front of a live audience and judged by chefs and celebrities including Ben Vaughn, Kari Karch, Robin Leach, Simon Majumdar, Whitney Miller, Emily Ellyn, Ray Lampe and Linkie Marais.
“The mission of this competition aligns seamlessly with the mission of Gunter Wilhelm®," said David Malek, partner at Gunter Wilhelm®. “We want to make the best culinary tools available to chefs of every skill level so that they can create their best epicurean masterpieces.”
There will be 17 teams and individuals using Gunter Wilhelm® during the competition and several different levels of winners who will receive the cutlery in their prize package.
Gunter Wilhelm® cutlery is made from 440C high carbon stainless German steel and features a patented triple-tang handle design that makes them better balanced and sturdier than other knives available. In addition to the high-quality of their products, Gunter Wilhelm® gives their customers a “no questions asked” lifetime warranty, adding immeasurable value to an already affordable knife set.
