Hoping to find true love through their love of good food, a single guy or girl is presented with five unique menus, of which they must pick the three that appeal to them the most.
In turn, the three successful ‘chefs’ then cook their meal for their guest to win their affections. When all three home-cooked meals have been completed, the dinner guest chooses one of their three hosts to take out for a romantic meal, for two, at a classy restaurant. The question is... will anyone find their soulmate?
If you had to appear on Dinner Date SA, what would your ideal menu look like? We've rounded up some culinary inspo from our favourite South African foodies to give us a dash of inspiration for if the day had to come.
Quick and easy
Sometimes simplicity is key, and what better way than a good ol' burger? Private Chef Neil Anthony gets our mouth watering with his burger building skills... could we phone him up to inspire the best burger recipe for the menu? If a burger fails, Neil could help us whip up any gourmet meal to make us feel like we're in a European city.
Pork belly ramen? We're here for this! We bet this would be a huge winner and it would be courtesy of J'Something. The My Kitchen Rules judge sure knows how to get us happy about food!
Siba Mtongana has us wishing for island holidays with her coconut popsicle recipe. Excuse us while we take a moment to appreciate how incredible that must taste! Add that to your menu and you're bound to score a second date! Watch Siba's Table: Sibalicious Sundays at 21:00 on Food Network and streaming online on DStv Now for more foodie inspo.
