A Holy Trinity High School student cooked up a bronze medal at the Skills Canada National Competition that was held in Edmonton on June 4th and 5th.

Sarah Reid, a grade 11 student, placed third out of the entire country in the cooking/ culinary event.

“It was amazing. I didn’t think I would win, my goal was just to finish,” said Reid.

The event took place over two days, where Reid had to make two different meals.

On day one Reid plated a croque-monsieur, a fancy ham and cheese sandwich, with a salad and homemade dressing.

Day two consisted of minestrone soup, steak, potatoes, asparagus and a lemon tart for dessert.

Reid said her inspiration comes from her mom and her granny.

“When I was younger I use to watch them cook all the time and then I started lessons in grade 7 through school and just worked my way up.” 

Reid moved onto compete at nationals after claiming a gold medal at the province wide skills competition.

The idea of Skills Canada National Competition is to engage Canadian youth and promote different types of trade and technology careers.
