The top three finalists in the 2017 Championship Boerewors competition have been announced.
A country-wide search to find SA’s No.1 Championship Boerewors kicked off in April this year when hundreds of entrants submitted their special recipes for consideration. Through various judging rounds, the contestants were whittled down to just three finalists. Facing tough competition, Queen Mathebule (from Malamulele, Limpopo), James Lebepe (from Atteridgeville, Gauteng) and Moses Mathebule (from Lenyenye, Limpopo) proved to be a cut above the rest.
These Top 3 recipes were available in all Shoprite and Checkers stores nationwide. South Africans had the opportunity to vote for the country’s very best boerewors.
The winner of the 2017 Championship Boerewors competition will be announced in September and will drive off in a brand-new Toyota Hilux 2.8 GD-6 Double Cab Raised Body Raider. The winning recipe – #SAsNo1 Championship Boerewors – will also be for sale in all Shoprite and Checkers stores from 15 September 2017, just in time for Heritage Day.
Shoprite and Checkers are proud of South Africa’s boerewors tradition and celebrate it every year by hosting the Championship Boerewors competition.
Shoprite and Checkers are proud of South Africa’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 Championship Boerewors competition plays a pivotal role in helping the group to achieve this aim.
Over the past 25 years, the title of Boerewors Champion has been conquered by South Africans from all walks of life, from housewives to butchery managers, and even by a (then) 13-year-old primary school learner.
The South African Chefs Association (SACA) is a recognised authority on food and will once again take charge of the judging, ensuring that all entries adhere to the guidelines for making truly traditional boerewors.
