The world's largest food competition just crowned 10 new champions and a Connecticut chef scores!

The World Food Championships is called "Food Sport" by the experts because of its' five frantic days of frenetic non-stop cooking in Orange Beach, Alabama. The competition features more than 500 teams from all over the world where more than 5,600 dishes were prepared for the judges who would name the Top 10 World Food Champions of 2018. Each contestant has to create three dishes.

Chef Carol Koty from Naugatuck, CT is the dining services coordinator at Brookdale Senior Living in Wilton. She's competed in the World Food Championships six times before and this time, she finally hit pay dirt! Koty won a 2nd Place Award in the Seafood Category but her signature dish, Seafood Pot Pie was the only signature dish to score a perfect 100! Koty's dream is to eventually have her own Food Network show.

Taken from the World Food Championship's website, the 10 categories were, Bacon, World Chef, Dessert, Sandwich, Seafood, Barbecue, Burgers, Chili, Chicken, and Steak. To review all of the 2018 World Food Championship's scores and results, click on
