LAS VEGAS, Nevada (ABC4 News) — Emma El-Farra won the Western Region Student at the American Culinary Federation competition that was held in Las Vegas on Saturday.

El-Farra is a sophomore and originally from Santa Clarita, Calif, she now advances to the federation’s “Final Five” national competition in Orlando, which is expected to take place in August. 

“It was much more intense than I expected,” Emma said. “When you’ve got several judges standing over you watching your every move, it made me even more nervous than I already was!”

According to Utah Valley University, this is the fourth straight win that a student from the university has won from the culinary competition at the regional stage, and two of the last three winners went on to be named National Student Chef of the Year.
