Who doesn't enjoy getting creative with their Christmas bakes and festive entertaining platters? This tasty new show will have you and your family mixing things up at record-speed with the delicious Christmas food range from Woolworths.

Following on the successful heels of their former shows - A Woolies Easter with Anele and A Woolies Winter Cook-Off, the retail giant is partnering once again with TV and radio presenter Anele Mdoda for their new festive themed cooking show – A Woolies Christmas Cook-Off.

Running up until Christmas, contestants will be joining Anele on the set to cook-off against each other in three rounds. Going head-to-head under time pressure to prepare the dish Anele’s likes the best and ultimately take home the win.
