We're excited to see the field of competitors who have already won their golden ticket and registered to compete at the 2018 World Food Championships. And we are always proud to announce our special guests and celebrity judges participating in our judging events across the nation - we're sure the championship food certainly helps! Best of luck to our 2018 competitors!

HEAD COOK: Louise Jensen

COMPETITION: World Dessert Championship

I am a nurse from Billings MT that likes to bake. My husband has been competing in BBQ competitions for many years and I compete in the "other" category by submitting a desert as part of his team (when they have an "other" category). I usually enter a cupcake of some type. This summer I took 1st place at the Montana BBQ Cook-off, with my desert (with a perfect/perfect score of 180) which qualified me for the World Food Championship this November. This will be our first year competing at the World Food Championships! We have judged at three World Food Championships over the past 4 years (we missed last year). We enjoy watching the teams cook...especially the desert and BBQ categories. I like watching the teams create beautiful deserts. I took Wilton cake decorating classes at Michael's Store over 10 years ago. I have been baking cakes, cupcakes, and cookies for friends, family and co-workers since then. My husband and I are certified KCBS BBQ judges. I will be competing under my husbands team "Smokin Jerks". My husband (William) and our daughter (Amber Wivholm) will be cooking with me.
