The first-ever World Food Championships happen Nov. 1-4, 2012 at Bally’s Las Vegas, with additional events at Paris Las Vegas and Caesars Palace.

TV’s Adam Richman (“Man v. Food,” below) hosts the four-day, belt-busting food festival and cooking competition where chefs will square off for bragging rights and $300,000 in prize money.

A highlight of the gathering will be a World Chef Challenge open to some of the best chefs in America’s greatest food cities.
