Over 1000 boerewors-experts will battle it out, boasting more than 1150 unique boerewors recipes in the regional rounds of one of South Africa’s fiercest culinary battles - the 2013 Shoprite Checkers Championship Boerewors Competition. The nerve-racking regional clashes take place on Saturdays 10, 17 and 24 August at selected locations countrywide. Regional round participants need to go all out to impress the judges with their boerewors-making and -cooking skills as only the first place winners of each of the 88 regional rounds will go on to battle it out against their provincial counterparts in ten provincial rounds that take place on Saturday, 14 September.

An independent judging panel, selected and trained by the South African Chefs Association (SACA) will judge each regional round where prospective Boerewors Champions have to braai 1 kg of their own-recipe boerewors that will be judged raw and cooked.

The competition ends on Saturday, 5 October when 10 finalists compete in braai-offs at Sun City’s Valley of Waves in a vigorous grand finale. The Boerewors Champion will earn the sought-after 2013 Boerewors Crown and also drive away in a brand new TOYOTA Hilux 2.7 Double Cab Raised Body Raider! Members of the public are invited to go and watch as the boerewors-fundis battle it out in the regional rounds. Between the sizzling fires and enticing boerewors smells, visitors will be entertained by well-known entertainers, various lucky draws and giveaways will be held. Coca Cola, Simba and All Gold, co-sponsors of the Shoprite Checkers Championship Boerewors Competition, will offer promotional activities and competitions on the day.
