More than 1000 hopefuls entered the 2011 Shoprite Checkers Championship Boerewors Competition, but only 87 boerewors experts remain standing after facing their competitors in tough regional rounds that took place countrywide during August 2011. These regional winners will now face each other once again in provincial rounds to determine which ten will go to Sun City in October for a final assault on this year’s famous boerewors crown!
All ten provincial rounds take place on 17 September. Gauteng, with most entries received, will host two provincial rounds - one at Johannesburg and one in Edenvale, Germiston. Regional winners in KZN will travel to Durban, Northern Cape winners to Kimberley, and Western Cape contestants will take on the battle in Brackenfell. Free State regional winners will meet in Bloemfontein, Eastern Cape winners in Port Elizabeth, North West winners at Brits, Mpumalanga winners in Nelspruit, while Polokwane readies itself for regional winners and their supporters from Limpopo.
Top food experts from the South African Chefs Association (SACA) will act as official judges in the provincial rounds. The 2011 Shoprite Checkers Championship Boerewors will also receive the South African Chefs Association’s stamp of approval, to ensure that the ingredients for South Africa’s best loved braaiwors are of the highest quality.
Winners of the provincial rounds each walk away with R2000 Shoprite or Checkers meat vouchers and gift hampers from Coca Cola, All Gold and Simba. All provincial winners will also enjoy a fun-filled weekend at Sun City where they join the other 9 finalists for the grand finale on 8 October. The 2011 Shoprite Checkers Boerewors Champion will not only walk away with the sought after Championship Boerewors-crown, but also drive away in a brand-new Toyota Hilux 2.7 Double Cab Raised Body Raider.
The country’s many loyal boerewors lovers can meanwhile start preparing for yet another taste sensation, because the winning recipe boerewors will hit the shelves of Shoprite, Checkers and Checkers Hyper stores country wide, on 14 October.
