Occupation: Unemployed (former financial and admin manager – resigned)
Berdina auditioned in all three cities and her perseverance and culinary flair finally came to the fore when she got through in Durban. Don't be fooled by her soft-spoken nature and demure appearance: she is serious, determined and focused in the kitchen. Berdina specialises in French cuisine and pastry cakes, with one of her wedding cakes being featured in ‘Drum’ magazine. She’s a big fan of South African fusion food but is also aware of the French and Italian classics, and hopes this broad knowledge will give her the edge.
