The yummiest local cooking competition, My Kitchen Rules SA, returns to M-Net (DStv Channel 101) this September for the ultimate culinary face-off. The fast-paced and intense cooking competition will see teams of avid home cooks go head-to-head in a bid to impress their fellow competitors and celebrity judges – J’Something and David Higgs – all in the hopes of winning the R1 million grand prize.
“The pandemic has made food, cooking at home and cooking together as a family big again. All this time that South Africans have spent inside the kitchen and online following their favourite foodies raises the bar for the new season,” – award-winning Chef and MKRSA judge David Higgs.
The amateur foodie pairs will start their pressure-cooker journey in an Instant Pop-up Restaurant round, where each couple will host their competitors and the two celebrity judges with a themed three-course dinner. Then, couples who avoid the chopping block in round one will proceed to the Challenge Knock-Out Competition rounds where they will battle against each other in a series of cooking challenges at the MKR kitchen HQ and various off-site locations.
M-Net is looking for authentic South Africans in teams of two, who have a great connection, are foodies at heart and ready to bring their personal style and flavour to theMy Kitchen Rules SA table. If this is you, visit the M-Net Website along with your foodie partner (the partnership must be a pre-existing and strong relationship like a spouse, best friend, fiancé, neighbour or cousin, etc.) and fill out the online application form, which includes a video entry. Entries open today, 1 June 2021 and will close at 00:00 on 30 June 2021. Both team members must be 18 years old or older on 1 August 2021. Passionate home cook and judge J’Something shares some advice for the entrants of season three:
“When creating your home audition video, showcase each of your personalities and your skills in the kitchen. Most importantly, make sure that you and your chosen partner have a good connection and great rapport in the kitchen. Good luck!”
