Two contestants leave Masterchef SA

 Cape Town – In a surprise twist two contestants left Masterchef SA on Tuesday.

After a mystery box challenge and a pressure test, Namibian born Fortune Kangueehi was the first to leave Masterchef SA followed by Capetonian Charles Canning.

Early on Tuesday, M-Net hinted that Guy Clark will be eliminated, but this was due to a technical error on their website, according to Channel24.

The Top 18 contestants, who set foot in the MasterChef SA Kitchen for the first time, each received a mystery box for the first challenge with the iinstructions to cook a meal that reminded them of childhood.

Fortune, an ad accounts manager from Windhoek, Namibia, did not impress the judges with her rare meat and Charles’ bangers and mash were too simple according to the judges.

In the Pressure Test five contestants had to recreate two South African classics: the koeksister and the Cape Malay koesiester - and they had 75 minutes to recreate it.

Unfortunately, Fortune forgot to put baking powder in her mixture and Charles’s dish just didn’t make the cut.

MasterChef SA airs on M-Net and M-Net HD on Tuesdays at 19:30.

      It is a traditional sweet, made here in the Cape (and elsewhere). Like a small doughnut dipped in syrup and coconut.

      We at work were also puzzled about the Koesieters, after some internet surfing we learned that it's known as the Cape Malay koeksister.

      A Koesister is about the same consistency as a plain doughnut (the long one), but about half the length and is dipped in a sweet syrup and dessicated coconut... it is not plaited like the western koeksister
