Major International and the Craft Guild of Chefs work in conjunction to organise the annual Major Series of Display Classes.  The national competition is open to junior and senior chefs of varying skill levels and is set to take place at numerous venues around the country.  The event, in its twelth year is rising in popularity and the last years Series was really something to shout about with Megan O’Mahoney from Westminster College winning Gold.  Joint silver prize was awarded to Antonia Morosi also from Westminster College and Jay Thompson from South Devon College who all wowed the judging panel.

“The aim of the Major Series is not only to promote culinary excellence but also to nurture talent. Today this is seen as one of the UK’s premier competitions and it’s a great way to encourage creativity and showcase your skills,” comments David Bryant, Managing Director of Major International.

The heats will take place over two dates: Friday 7th February 2014 at South Devon College (Paignton) and Friday 16th May 2014 at Durham College with the final being held at one of the country’s largest food and catering exhibitions.

The competitions range from a number of display, static and restaurant skills classes.  Included in the live display class is the Major Culinary Challenge, where competitors are given 50 minutes to produce and present two individual chicken plated dishes involving a modern style of presentation incorporating one of three Major Mari Base marinades.

The top 2 from each hot chicken heat will compete in the GRAND FINAL for an opportunity to win £500 in vouchers, plus one years free membership to the Craft Guild of Chefs and £250 vouchers to the winners college and much more including personalised chefs jackets.

 “The Major Series is a great way to introduce chefs of all ages into the competition arena.  Some of today’s national competition stars began their competition with this Competition’. Comments Wayne Harris of the Craft Guild of Chefs Academy
