Effervescent “besties” Minnie and Tee will have to be at their sizzling best if they hope to charm celebrity judges David Higgs and J’Something – and their fellow competitors – at the Instant Restaurant they have set up at their home in this week’s edition of My Kitchen Rules South Africa.

 "From what we have seen about the pair around the dinner table at the show’s first three episodes, this week’s action in the kitchen can only make for fascinating fare, says M-Net’s Head of Publicity Lani Lombard. “They’re born entertainers, but will their cooking skills match their big personalities?

 Minnie and Tee share a passion for traditional African cuisine, and the menu they have in mind is aimed at winning hearts and tickling taste buds in equal measure.

 “We want our guests to feel our love,” says Minnie, and explains that the food they’re going to dish up reflects who they are. “Technically, we’re going to give them ‘us’.”

 Minnie and Tee met at another reality TV show audition and immediately became BFFs. The soul sisters love eating as much as they love cooking and with their Instant Restaurant they want to show the world that it is possible to modernise traditional cuisine without diminishing the African experience.

To date, they have not been afraid to speak their minds about their competitors’ efforts, so they cannot expect any favours in return. The pair admits that presentation is not their strongest suit – and hope they can compensate with a dish that pleases the palate and warms the heart.
