Championship Boerewors entrants to battle it out in regional rounds this July

Jun 27, 2017

Hundreds of boerie pioneers, connoisseurs and local legends will battle it out at six different Champion Rounds on Saturdays 1 and 8 July 2017 as part of the 2017 Championship Boerewors competition.

The Champion Round participants need to go all out to impress the judges with their boerewors-making skills, as just eighteen contestants (three winners from each of the six Champion Rounds) can proceed to the Top 18 Round to be held in Cape Town on Saturday, 22 July 2017. Here the top three recipes will be chosen by a panel of expert judges from the South African Chefs Association (SACA).

The competition really heats up when the top three recipes will be available in Shoprite and Checkers supermarkets across South Africa for consumers to buy, braai and vote for their favourite between 18 August and 8 September 2017. By voting the public ultimately decides who the new boerewors champion is and stand a chance of winning their share of awesome prizes.

The winner of the 2017 Championship Boerewors competition, as voted for by the public, will be announced on Wednesday, 13 September. The grand prize includes a brand new Toyota Hilux 2.8 GD-6 Double Cab Raised Body Raider as well as the honour of having one’s recipe crowned and sold as #SAsNo1. There are also wonderful prizes up for grabs for participants from Coca-Cola, Wellington’s and Simba.
