The search for South Africa’s best boerewors recipe is on and the competition just heated up with the announcement of the top 10 contestants.

The popular Championship Boerewors competition, presented annually by Shoprite and Checkers, kicked off in May this year with thousands of entrants submitting their traditional boerewors recipes.

Through various judging rounds, the contestants were whittled down and this year’s top 10 includes South Africans from all walks of life, from a housewife to a business developer, and even a 14-year-old scholar.

Meet this year’s finalists (in no particular order):

  • Adriaan Marx from Somerset West, Western Cape
  • Chris Roodt from Cradock, Eastern Cape
  • Delano Jasper from Wellington, Western Cape (2020 winner)
  • Fredrika Trollip from White River, Mpumalanga

  • Robin Jaar from Paarl, Western Cape
  • Sanele Cele from KwaMashu, KwaZulu-Natal
  • Vikash Bachu from Ladysmith, KwaZulu-Natal
  • Xavier Blaauw from Wellington, Western Cape (aged 14)
  • Yolande Coleske from Kariega, Eastern Cape

The top 10 are all vying for the grand prize which includes the coveted title of 2021 Championship Boerewors winner, the honour of having their boerewors sold in Shoprite and Checkers stores nationwide and a Toyota Fortuner 2.4 GD-6 4X2 6AT.

The winner will be decided on Thursday, 26 August during a virtual affair which will be broadcast live on the Shoprite and Checkers YouTube channels from 12:30 on the day.
