MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) - Dr. Alice D'Antoni Phillips of Murrells Inlet will be featured in an episode of the World Food Championships (WFC).

Phillips, a food and lifestyle blogger will be a competitor in the recipe category of the competition. The WFC is a show on A&E's new channel FYI. "Being a competitor at the WFC not only takes immense skill and talent but you have to work fearlessly under heat, cameras, pressure, and always be prepared for the unknown," Phillips said.

The episode will feature Phillips as she prepares one of her recipes for the competition. The WFC will place home cooks and professional chefs in a kitchen to compete against each other. Judges are looking for skill, timing, execution, taste and more. Each cook must prepare three delicious and appetizing dishes in less than three hours. The competitors will then present the dishes to the judges before the time runs out.

Phillips said, "I totally had to zone into a new level of performance with my cooking and leave behind any thoughts of cameras and what was happening all around me. My mantra in my head at that moment was simple—prepare and execute the perfect dish for the judges that had bursts of amazing flavor!" This episode is scheduled to air on Thursday, July 31 at 10 p.m. eastern time. View local listings for channels.
