THE SEARCH FOR SOUTH AFRICA’S BEST BOEREWORS IS ON
and the competition is more exciting and challenging than ever before!
If your recipe is worthy to be called SA’s No.1 then now is the time to enter! The 2015 Championship Boerewors competition is taking on an exciting new format. This year’s competition allows only one recipe per entrant and no spice batch packs may be used. And for the first time in the history of the competition, the winner will be selected through a process of public voting!
Anyone with an exceptional traditional boerewors recipe, and the skills to make their boerewors from scratch, can enter. The South African Chefs Association (SACA), a recognised authority on food in South Africa, will take charge of the judging processes, and they will be making sure that all entries adhere to the guidelines for making the truly traditional boerewors.
Shoprite and Checkers are proud of SA’s boerewors tradition
and celebrate it every year by hosting the Championship Boerewors
Competition. The supermarket chains’ butcheries are famous for
exceptional meat products and the group is always looking for new
recipes and ideas in order to offer consumers the best in quality and
variety. The annual Championship Boerewors competition plays a pivotal
role in helping the group to achieve this aim.
Entry forms are
available from all Shoprite, Checkers and Checkers Hyper stores or enter here. You may scan and email, fax or post your entry, just make sure
it reaches us before Friday, 12 June 2015. You could win loads of
prizes from Coca-Cola, All Gold and Simba and may even drive away in a
brand new Toyota Hilux 2.7 Double Cab Raised Body Raider!
We look forward to seeing which recipe will be selected as 2015’s best - #SAsNo1!
