Ya hey…lots of talk about South African MasterChef recently and how it compares to the international versions and next week see’s the third episode where they narrow down the field to the top 18 contestants who will compete for top honours. I’ve heard reactions to the show range from awesome to downright embarrassing and instead of having it’s own SA feel it appears that it’s trying to hard to fit into with the overseas versions…even throwing in the token angry judge shouting at everyone.
Enter…HalfArsed-a Chef. A spoof online reality series with a uniquely local flavour created by the folks at top SA food and lifestyle brand, NoMU.
And judging from the first episode where contestants had to use their creative skills to make a Boerewors Tower it looks like they had plenty of fun making this. Contestants include a bunch of folks you may recognise..hey even i make a cameo appearance along with Liezel Van der Westhuizen, Dax Villeneuva, Neil Anthony, Richard Hardiman, Slick Tiger, Angel Blythe Campey and some other awesome folks kept happy with quality wine provided by Andre Pentz.
Even Helen Zille makes a brief appearance. Check it.
Ha…did you see my boerie hat creation? Food you can wear my friend. Form meets function that you can eat on the run.
And lemme tell you that that is mild compared to the rest of the series. The wine hadn’t kicked in yet and wait till you see how it ends. Food fights, semi-nudity and some very bizarre desserts.
Watch this space.
