Former Frank's and Frank's Outback chef Danny Smith has secured a spot in the 2020 World Food Championships with his first-place Taste of America Challenge win for South Carolina.
The World Food Championships (WFC) will hold its 9th annual Tournament of Champions from November 6-10, 2020 at one of Dallas, Texas' most iconic venues, Fair Park.
This will be Smith's second time competing in the tournament. Last year, he competed with chef and friend Charles Bardo of R'Way Pizza and Family Tavern.
Smith currently works at Fire and Smoke Gastropub in Myrtle Beach.
We wish chef Danny all the best as he prepares for his second trip to Dallas, Texas.
