As­pir­ing chefs to show­case tal­ents on TV show

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - ASANDA SOKANYILE

CALL­ING all young food­ies to join in the fun of cook­ing in front of mil­lions of TV view­ers.

The new Yum.Me com­pe­ti­tion has be­gun and is look­ing for 104 young chefs aged between eight and 16.

The teams will be ex­pected to take part in a cook-off which will be filmed on Satur­days at the Okuhle Me­dia stu­dios in Ob­ser­va­tory.

There will be 26 episodes, fea­tur­ing 52 teams of two.

The show will be aired from Oc­to­ber 16 on SABC 3 at 10 am on Sun­days.

Each pair stands to walk away with a medal, a cer­tifi­cate and vouch­ers val­ued at R1 500.

Che­flets will use their tal­ent to turn a se­cret in­gre­di­ent into a de­li­cious dish.

Ac­cord­ing to Ali­son Evans, pro­ducer at Okuhle Me­dia, the “pur­pose of the se­ries is to cre­ate a space that show­cases the fact that young peo­ple are cook­ing and bak­ing, and they’re pretty good at it too”. She said that since film­ing be­gan last month, “che­flets have thor­oughly im­pressed us with their en­thu­si­asm and ease in the kitchen”.

To date, the young­sters have made “flam­bés and flans, stir­fried noo­dles and silky sauces, and a few chaos-caus­ing cakes”, she said.

The com­pe­ti­tion is open to all chil­dren, but they must be able to make their own trans­port ar­range­ments to the stu­dios in Ob­ser­va­tory.

So if you love to cook or bake, com­plete the on­line ap­pli­ca­tion form by vis­it­ing http://www.okuhle.co.za/ news/yum-me-news-fromokuhle.html
