Student progresses to final of Major culinary competition

Written by: Edward Waddell
Sharna Fraser, a 16-year-old student from Cheshire College South & West Crewe campus is through to the national final of the junior Major Culinary Challenge Competition.

Sharna Fraser, who works part-time at her local Hickory’s Smokehouse, won the regional semi-final at the Welsh International Culinary Championships (WICC) held at Grŵp Llandrillo Menai’s campus in Rhos-on-Sea.

The Major Culinary Challenge Competition, held in conjunction with the Craft Guild of Chefs, sees chefs cook a two course menu in an hour, including a vegan starter and a main course of their own choice.

The overall winner of the competition will win a Michelin-starred meal for themselves and a guest in their local area. The winner will also take part in a culinary flavour discovery at the home of Major in Milton Keynes for two days.

Sharna said: “This is my first competition and I am absolutely blown away to win. Having the opportunity in the final is more than enough, but it will be interesting to see what comes out of it.”
