World Food Championships Enters NFT Market with Partners Gourmet NFT and Oasis Digital Studios
World renowned tournament Chefs to offer award-winning recipes
Nashville, TN / Houston, TX / Toronto, Canada – January 17, 2021 – Oasis Digital Studios Limited (“Oasis”), a wholly owned subsidiary of CSE: LQID / OTCQB:LQAVF / FRA:4T51) (“Liquid Avatar Technologies” or the “Company”), a global blockchain and fintech solutions company, focused on Digital Identity, integrated Avatars and the Metaverse, is pleased to announce that Oasis and Gourmet NFT have partnered with the leaders of the World Food Championships to create a series of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) that will enable fans and foodies to recreate award winning recipes in their own kitchens.
Award winning Chefs and home cooks from the World Food Championships, the leader in Food Sport, now have an opportunity to cash in on the NFT market, thanks to a new agreement between WFC and Oasis /Gourmet NFT.
The new alliance will curate, market, and share proceeds with chefs as they dish out digital originals from their prize-winning custom recipes, as well as private dinners for customers seeking unique culinary experiences.
“This is a very exciting development for our Champion Chefs and the Food Sport industry,” said Mike McCloud, President of WFC. “Owning an original recipe or experiencing a one-of-a-kind culinary dinner was once a rare opportunity. But with the development and expansion of the NFT market, it’s becoming more possible and achievable than ever before.”
First steps in the partnership include releasing the winning signature dishes of WFC’s category champions, which are a mix of chefs and home cooks who have achieved success in one of the hardest culinary gauntlets in the world. Over the coming weeks, hundreds more recipes will be added from the WFC archives.
“The culinary art that we see from these champions is truly outstanding and creative work,” McCloud noted. “Thousands of chefs compete nationally and around the globe to prove they have the skills to be a champion, and each year our process validates ten of them. Having their work available for custom, private ownership is a natural next step in the food industry.”
“With the high skill levels of WFCs chefs, as well as their broad reach in the market, we are thrilled to announce this alliance with Mike McCloud and his dedicated team, and to allow foodies to experience and share in the WFC family’s secrets and successes,” said Ruth McCartney co-founder of Gourmet NFT together with Houston Chef and owner of eculent restaurant, Chef David Skinner. Skinner has been dubbed the “Willy Wonka” of gastronomy and is a favorite of the Washington Post.
More information on how award-winning chefs can participate directly in this opportunity will be released in the coming weeks.
