Shoprite and Checkers are once again calling on all South Africans with a stellar boerewors recipe, to enter the country’s leading boerewors competition. 

Entries for the popular Championship Boerewors competition, presented annually by Shoprite and Checkers in their search for SA’s No.1 boerewors, are now open and anyone who believes that they have the winning recipe is invited to enter by Friday, 18 June 2021.

Finding the country’s best boerewors is no small feat, which is why judging of the competition  is entrusted to the culinary experts at the South African Chefs Association (SACA). All entries will go through a validation process to ensure that recipes adhere to the guidelines for making traditional boerewors and once validated, the experienced judges will commence to select the 30 best recipe submissions.

They’ll then take on the even harder task of narrowing it down to the top 10 boerewors recipes, where they will be looking for the most authentic, robust and flavourful entries.  

Although the winning recipe always remains a closely guarded secret, Delano Jasper, the 19-year-old winner of last year’s competition, says the key to good boerewors is really good quality meat and spices, as well as combining the right mix of ingredients. 

Apart from bragging rights, the coveted title of 2021 Championship Boerewors winner and the honour of your winning boerewors being sold in Shoprite and Checkers stores nationwide, incredible prizes are up for grabs, with the grand prize being a Toyota Fortuner 2.4 GD-6 4X2 6AT.
