WTF is a Koekedoor?

2016-04-07 10:44

Cape Town – On Wednesday afternoon we attended a special screening of season 2 of Koekedoor. Now we know what you’re thiking: WTF is a Koekedoor? Allow us to explain.

Koekedoor is a local baking competition TV show broadcast on the Afrikaans TV channel, kykNET. The show in its current format is a spin-off from the Afrikaans amateur cooking contest, Kokkedoor.

Koekedoor is a bit of a mixture of Great Bake Off and MasterChef but 100% local and 100% lekker.

What’s it all about:

The screening was a special event to introduce the media to the new cast of the popular TV show. The new season will have 13 episodes and kicks off on Thursday, 14 April at 20:00 on kykNET (DStv 144).


* The new season only has one male contestant, Wessels, and he promises to be a fan favourite.

* TV legend Riaan Cruywagen and ex-Miss World, Rolene Strauss, both make guest appearances in the first episode alongside a string of other local stars.

* The first season of Koekedoor was a mega-hit and raked in the ratings.

* The cinematography in the show is some of the best we’ve ever seen in a local production.

* In the first episode Glam Guru's Hannon says: "You know I like a hot dog that makes me blush."

* One of the contestants makes a sugary mixture with rose petals and says: "There’s a fine line between Turkish Delight and bath oil."

* The show, filmed in Tulbagh, is fresh, funny, extremely well put together and definitely worth the watch.
