Masterchef auditions in Cape Town this weekend

2014-02-22 08:00
Johannesburg -  Auditions for Season 3 of M-Net’s hit cooking show MasterChef South Africa are heading to Cape Town on Saturday, 22 February. 

The season’s auditions got off to a flying start in Durban last week. Dishes presented by KZN’s amateur cooks set an incredibly high standard for the rest of the country.

Chef Reuben Riffel, new judge on the upcoming series, was impressed by what Durban had to offer: “The Cold Auditions in Durban were great – we saw some tasty dishes and met interesting characters who all share a love and passion for food. What impressed me most, however, was the quality of food at the Hot Auditions that were held on Monday. There were a number of plates that could undoubtedly be served in a fine dining restaurant tomorrow. The standard and skills levels of contestants were remarkably high. With the bar set, I cannot wait to see what Capetonians have to offer.”

The MasterChef SA team moves to Cape Town this weekend - home town of judges Pete Goffe-Wood and Reuben Riffel - and arguably the foodie capital of the country. With many of South Africa’s Top 10 restaurants located in the Mother City, there is a vibrant and thriving culinary culture in Cape Town. MasterChef SA Season 2 winner Kamini Pather, who also hails from Cape Town, will be at Southern Sun The Cullinan on Saturday to lend some support and encouragement to wannabe chefs in the queue.

Auditions open on Saturday at 09:00am but contestants are advised to arrive a few hours earlier to avoid a long wait in the queue. Dishes must be cold and all food must be stored in a cooler box. For rules, regulations and tips about the audition process click here.
