It has been a gruelling yet highly educative journey so far for all the home cooks who entered the competition and now, whittled down to the Top 3; it is safe to say each of these duos have a 1 in 3 chance of winning the cool R1m.
Your Top 3 duos are:
The couple entered the competition as a duo and flew under the radar in the competition for the first couple of weeks, pushing themselves when they needed to. However, the last couple of weeks has seen them coming into their own elements and finally being able to interpret the ideas they have for their cooks and executing them almost perfectly. Their battle for a Top 3 spot saw them knock out firm favourites, Ruan and Aquila with a dish that could be served either at home on a cool spring evening or at a panoramic window table in a 5-star restaurant.
This duo consisting of childhood friends share a passion for laughing and joking a lot and these two traits have endeared them into the hearts of fans across the country. But don’t be fooled by the laughing because these two home cooks can hold their own in the kitchen. They have both proven their mettle in the cooking challenges they have been faced with and whether they are cooking as a duo or as individuals, the one thing you can confidently wager your money on is that they will always excel.
These two ladies met on the Show after they got paired on set. The beauty of this duo is that they are both strong willed women who have their own ways of doing things. Though they may not see eye to eye on a lot of issues which most of the time results in them having one of their now famous disagreements, they quickly get over themselves and channel all that energy into their next cooking challenge which almost always gets them top marks during the judging phase. Their most recent ‘bust up’ saw them cook and plate their way into becoming the first duo to get into the Top 3.
With the penultimate Episode looming, each of the top 3 duos know it’s crunch time (did we just say crunch? Yes we did) and any mistake now will prove costly as there can only be one winning duo. Who’s your money on? Which duo takes it? Time will tell.
