BROOKSIDE Mall will host the inaugural Checkers Hyper Cook -Off and Food Fair on 11 July on Saturday.

The event will run from 10am to 2pm. The competition will see 20 amateur chefs compete as they serve their best recipe to try to impress the judges.

The cook-off will be hosted by celebrity­ chef, Shewyn Weaich, owner of Gourmet Bushie, a catering company, also a contestant on e-tv’s Ultimate Braai Master and one of the top 25 in Master Chef, season 2.

Weaich has spent a number of years touring locally and internationally in search of new and exciting flavours.

Figureheads from the schools, churches and community centres and 10 lucky shoppers will judge the winning dish. The chef who receives the highest will take home a R6 000 Checkers voucher.

For those who are not involved in the competition, there will be a variety of food and beverage stalls as well as sampling stations available to complement the cook-off.

Experience a day of culinary delight and celebrate good food and good people at Brookside Mall’s first Checkers Hyper Cook-Off and Food Fair.
