Are your knives sharp? Have you swotted up your spaghetti? Is your palate trained to create the perfect balance between spices, produce and meat? Foodies and wanna-be chefs, if you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the TV room because Sjefhuis S2 kicks off on Monday, 29 March on VIA (DStv channel 147) at 17:30.
Esteemed South African chef Bertus Basson has once again agreed to take an aspiring young chef under his wing and train them in an internship – which is part of the big prize, including R50,000 in cash, in this food reality competition series.
As host of the show, actress Crystal-Donna Roberts is also back to offer the 8 new participants support as they get cracking behind the pots to impress chef Bertus.
How It Works
In each episode, the 8 aspiring chefs will compete in culinary challenges that chef Bertus will sample and judge. From a perfectly cooked steak or soft-boiled eggs, to melt-in-the-mouth dessert, these young chefs will have to know it all to avoid being eliminated at the end of each episode.
A dramatic twist in the show is that the 8 young chefs all live under 1 roof while they take part in the series – which means things don’t just get heated in the kitchen… “There is going to be a brand-new dose of drama in the house as the competition between the chefs intensifies,” says Crystal-Donna.
“They are all serious and passionate about their love for food and to make a successful career out of it. And they will fight for their place and the chance to stay to the end.”
