15 family teams competed against each other to create the best Gourmet Burger and a Mzansi-inspired salad!
The eighth Spur Secret Tribe Chief Cook competition was held at Prue Leith Chef’s Academy in Centurion, Pretoria. 15 family teams came together to create culinary delights and compete against each other to create the best Gourmet Burger and a Mzansi-inspired salad.
The first challenge was to create a salad, focusing on freshness, flavour combinations and a salad dressing with a twist, using Spur Sauces. Butternut, biltong, feta cheese where the top favourite ingredients.
Next up each team had to create their version of Gourmet Burger, working with the famous Spur burger patty and sauces, as well as a variety of toppings to create the ultimate burger.
The ‘Best Burger’ challenge was won by mother-and-daughter team, Anneke Flower and 10-year old Yazzmin, who scored well in the taste category, using a delicious combination of sauces and toppings. Mother-and-daughter team, Funzani Shandukani and 6-year old Pfunzo came a close second.
Mom-and-son team, Thobeka Skhosana and 8-year old Nkosikhona were awarded the first prize for their Mzansi-inspired salad, scoring high on the flavour profile and full marks for their excellent teamwork. The runners up were mom-and-daughter team Tshegofatso Motsei and 9-year old Gogontle.
