During the hectic Team Challenge in Episode 8, contestants had to recreate iconic SA dishes from some renowned restaurants - here's a little more about those establishments and the meals.
Deena and Thys were pretty successful at recreating the DenningVleis
recipe from Biesmiellah
in Bo-Kaap, which also has a bakery and a coffee shop - check out the super looking menu on their site (which does include the delicious DenningVleis in question).
Ilse and Manisha were sent to Langa and Eziko Restaurant
, which specialises in African tradional food but has a a selection of Western dishes. You'll also be doing the local community some good because Eziko was established to provide a basis for a training centre, and the profits from the restaurant go to maintain the school as well as to sponsor the students who enrol in the Cooking and Catering Centre. Try their legendary pap and tripe
The meal that spelled the end for Babalwa and Brandon was Marais' chicken pie
, a family recipe from the suitably-named De Volkskombuis Restaurant
in Stellenbosch,which specialises in traditional Cape cuisine in authentic Cape Dutch surroundings.
While the waterblommetjie bredie
that Jade and Sue-Ann faltered on was prepared by Naomi Basson, she was graciously hosted at Goedemoed Country Inn
in Paarl, a guest house combining the grace of previous centuries with all possible modern conveniences. They do do lunch and dinner but by prior arrangement only.
