BEAT THAT: Rodwin Bailey really impressed with his apricot lamb tagine.
It’s getting hot in Kia so take off all your – ingredients – ahem.
Kia Cook-Off SA 2012 is a new local cooking show on the television menu with a local difference – bringing together 27 South Africans to compete for the honour of cooking the best one-pot dish in the country.
What’s more special is that they are not trained chefs but unsung heroes and heroines to their family and friends who think they make the best home- cooked meals. Contestants hail from townships and suburbs throughout the country, bringing curry recipes handed down from generation to generation – potjie recipes that over time have been embellished with ingredients that will whet the taste buds of anyone.
In the eighth episode of The Home Channel’s cooking competition, Kia Cook-Off SA 2012, three hopeful home-cooks prepare their favourite one-pot dish in the hope of going through to the next round and a chance to win the grand prize of R50000 and a fantastic five-star bush holiday.
This week, Capetonian blogger Candice Le Noury makes her Yum Prawn Curry, entrepreneur Sagree Naidoo prepares an authentic Durban fish curry and Rodwin Bailey, an event management expert who also hails from Durban, whips up an aromatic lamb tagine. Who will go through to the next round?
Catch SA’s biggest, boldest, home-brewed show Kia Cook-off SA 2012 media partnered with your favourite read (The New Age of course) and 567CapeTalk.
