The World Food Championships is coming back to Las Vegas for its second year November 7-10, this time taking over the Fremont Street Experience with eight different culinary competitions involving everything from desserts to barbecue.

Newly added is the Chef’s Challenge, a culinary skills expo anchored by a “mystery basket competition” à la Chopped. Twenty kitchen competitors will duke it out for a $5,000 prize, and the public is invited. Why would you care? Because eight of the contestants are Las Vegas chefs: Michael Chen from Yellowtail, Dustin Dechter from Westin Las Vegas, private chef Adam Kaswiner, David Middleton from Marche Bacchus, Daniel Ontiveros from Comme Ça, Joe Parrino from Andiamo Steakhouse, Mark Sherline from the Golden Nugget and Beni Velasquez from Bar+Bistro.
