Meat World Potjiekos Competition!

Posted on July 20th, 2017 at 18:00 PM

Meat World at the Springs Market is organising a huge Potjiekos Competition for Saturday, 28 July from 08:00 to 13:00. Big prizes are up for grabs! The winner will win meat to the value of R5 000, second prize, R2500 and third prize R1000. There is no theme for the day, so entrants can choose their own themes. One important rule is that you must use meat in your potjie and must also prepare at least one side dish. All the food must be prepared on site from 08:00 to 13:00. Meat World will donate the meat that entrants need to use in their potjies.

Well known TV personalities and singers will be the judges. Ben Kruger, well known for his role in Binnelanders and Potjiekos fundi has a lot of experience in the making of potjies as well as the judging of potjies. He recently, man alone, cooked 40 potjies at the Innibos Arts Festival for charity. “This was quite a challenge and a wonderful experience, but I will never do it agai!” Ben also published a Potjiekos Recipe Book, WILD AND WARM! Paul Lückhoff is well known for his character, Oom Wimpie, in Binnelanders and he will also be one of the judges. Paul can be seen in FIELA SE KIND as Elias and is also in the Lefra Comedy, MY VROU SE MAN SE MANNETJIE. Well known singer, Alwyn Oberholster, will be third judge and will also entertain us on the day with his music. His latest CD, MAAK OF BREEK is doing well on the charts at the moment.

Lots of entertainment and flea market stalls will also be available at the day. The public will be allowed to buy the food of the potjies. So, don’t worry about food on 28 July – come to the Springs Meat World at the Springs Market. The income of the selling of the potjies will be donated to a Springs charity.
