Abraham & Michelle

Abraham (34) and Michelle (35), Johannesburg and Pretoria

Abraham didn’t hesitate for a second when his best friend, Michelle asked him to enter MKRSA. He prides himself on making delicious sauces, great salads and a mean steak on the braai stand. Michelle, on the other hand, spends more time thinking and dreaming about food than she does about anything else. She loves to bring joy by cooking for others. She is a self-taught cook, and she aspires to have her own cooking show.

Kirsten & Detlev

Kirsten (28) and Detlev (62), Edenvale

Detlev and his daughter, Kirsten, lived together until she recently got engaged. The proud dad entered MKRSA because he and Kirsten watch a lot of cooking shows together. Detlev enjoys cooking for friends and family on the braai – his spareribs and picanha are huge hits. Kirsten would love to write a sequel to her grandmother’s autobiography called Sauerkraut and Turkish Delight, that is filled with family recipes. Her signature dishes are mostly nutritious and tasty meals like her famous Bean Brownies.

Shaeem & Mas Ud

Shaeem (38) & Mas’ud (40), Johannesburg

Mas’ud is passionate about life, family, food and the desire to always improve himself. He has been friends with his MKRSA partner Shaeem for 32 years. He’d love to own his own restaurant and feed the world food from the heart. Shaeem’s biggest strengths in the kitchen are his ability to learn and stay calm. With signature dishes of steak, escargots and a killer crispy chicken burger, Shaeem dreams of owning a restaurant.

Tim & Shereez

Timothy (36) and Shereez (38), Gqberha

Tim dreams of opening a little bistro where people can connect and feel at home. He learned to cook from his wife, Shereez, and from watching cooking shows. While Shereez shares her husband’s dream of running a bistro, she wants to show people wholesome cooking, while using simple ingredients. Her favourite South African dish is Cape Malay flaky roti, sugar beans curry and yellow potato. She entered MKRSA to be exposed to different types of foods and flavours.

Tsepang & Refilwe

Tšepang (32) and Refilwe (20), Alberton

Refilwe learned to cook from her mother, grandmother and sisters – one of whom, she’ll be sharing the drama of the MKRSA kitchen with. She loves nothing more than tucking into steak and chips, or a boerewors roll with caramelized onions. Tšepang has worked in the food and wine industry for 10 years, and she dreams of turning her grandmothers’ recipes into a cookbook.
