The finalists of My Kitchen Rules SA weigh in on their experience post the winner announcement on Sunday 11 December at 19:00. 

The three teams had found their way to the final in a beautiful stone mansion perched high above Sedgefield on the Garden Route. They were greeted by their Instant Restaurant banners to remind them how far they’d come – and were tasked by the judges to show their progress, in their food.

The three finalist duos had to produce a three-course meal that showed their strengths while honouring their culture and heritage, which was judged by MKRSA judges David Higgs and J’Something, along with kitchen superstars Siba Mtongana, Zola Nene, Wandile Mabaso, and Kayla-Ann Osborn. The judges would each gave a score out of 10 for the overall menu, based on presentation, creativity, and flavour. 

In the end, a "genius dessert" and perfectly cooked lamb main saw besties Abraham and Michelle take the My Kitchen Rules SA season 4 title and the R1 million prize.
