Thursday 20 January 2022, Day 112 of Level 1 😷

Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a day that did not start off well ending on such a high note; for a working morning, posting for my clients, for a Bakoven walk and preparing for an afternoon meeting; for good Utopia and Anatoli Status meetings; for finding Lello’s Deli in De Waterkant but not finding anything to buy; for a shop at Pick n Pay on Strand Street, shocked that the 500 g ProVita has jumped in price from R39,99 to R49,99, a 25 % increase 😱😡; for a wonderful dinner at the home of John French Continue reading →

MasterChef Season 4 rolls out a completely new set of Judges!

 

MasterChef Season 4 is starting on 28 February, and slowly M-Net is revealing details about its new series.

MasterChef SA to make a 4th Season comeback after a six year absence!

 

It was a chance remark from a chef that I was alerted to the news that MasterChef SA is to make a comeback…. but the news is scant!

The history of MasterChef SA : MasterChef had three seasons in South Africa, with Chefs Pete Goffe-Wood and Bennie Masekwameng as judges in all three seasons. Chef Reuben Riffel joined the third season as a judge. The filming took place at Nederburg. Robertsons was the main sponsor. Season Winners were Dean Naidoo, Kamini Pather, and Roxi Wardman (crowned in December 2014).  I covered each show of the three seasons on this Blog.  Continue reading →
