Boerie: secret recipes to battle it out in competition

2009-08-15 00:00

MORE than 1 000 secret recipes will be thrown into battle today as the annual Boerie Wars (aka Shoprite Checkers Championship Boerewors competition) takes place around the country.

In Pietermaritzburg sausages will be drawn at 10am at Checkers Cascades in Montrose.

This year the competition has drawn more than 1 000 entries from all nine provinces.

The aim of the competition is to determine whose boerewors is good enough to go through to the provincial round which will be held in September.

Visitors will be entertained by Jugglers and Hip Hop dancers and children will have their faces painted and will keep themselves busy on the jumping castles.

A panel of judges selected by the South African Chefs Association (SACA) will judge each regional round where prospective boerewors champions will braai one kilogramme of their own recipe boerewors which will be judged raw and cooked.
