Aspiring chefs or those wanting a change of career could win the chance to see their dreams come true by entering the Capsicum Culinary Studio’s Chef Talent Scout Competition.

Up for grabs are six bursaries amounting to R740 000, including the main prize of a three-year bursary towards the study of the school’s advanced culinary arts programme valued at R200 000.

The other five prizes will be one-year bursaries for a professional chef programme or professional patisserie programme, awarded to regional finalists to study at one of Capsicum Culinary Studio’s six campuses across the country.

To enter the competition, contestants must create a dish – sweet or savoury – using a red capsicum pepper or any other red ingredient; take a good, clear photo of the finished dish and upload it onto their Instagram page, tagging @Capsicumcooking and using the hashtag #CapsicumTalent.

Entrants must be 17 years of age or older.

The competition closes at midnight on Monday 30 November with the names of the 10 finalists from each region announced on Wednesday 9 December.

These finalists will be invited to participate in a cook-off in January at the campus closest to them.

The winner from each campus will compete in a cook-off to be held at Capsicum’s Rosebank campus in February.

Previous bursary winner Simone Kershaw (22) is studying the one-year professional chef programme and says her time at Capsicum has been a “bit of rocky road given the Covid-19 lockdown”.
