It was hec­tic on the set of VIA’s Jy Het ’n Wen­re­sep! but there were also plenty of fun mo­ments. Take a look . . .

SHE’S NOT ONLY A GOOD COOK

Car­men helps con­tes­tant Juanita Loub­ser with a quick make-up touch-up be­tween takes on set.

HAVE A LAUGH

Cathy Jonas, who had ev­ery­one in stitches with her witty com­ments dur­ing the film­ing of Episode 1, said the left-handed Car­men Niehaus looked so “awk­ward” work­ing in the kitchen.

The con­tes­tants were on set in Stel­len­bosch un­til 10.30 pm and the win­ner, Ru­dolph Shep­herd, still had to drive home to Vre­den­burg – that’s about a two-hour trip!

FEET UP

ABOVE: Time flies on set but once the cook­ing is done, there’s time for a quick breather for Car­men and stylist Anel Pot­gi­eter.

WHO ME?

BE­LOW: A sur­prised Is­abella Niehaus can’t be­lieve she is the win­ner of Episode 2 – Car­men loved her spinach and feta quiches. Here she is with fel­low con­tes­tants Jaco Muller and Hanli Uys.

ROLLING RO­TIS

COOL AND CALM

BE­LOW: Mecha­tronic en­gi­neer­ing stu­dent Ma­ri­etjie Jansen van Rens­burg had an exam the day af­ter her cook­ing ses­sion but took a mo­ment to re­lax on the stoep af­ter mak­ing her de­li­cious pie.

THAT RED BOOK

ABOVE: An­toinette Span­gen­berg makes her dish while Car­men makes notes in her spe­cial red book.

ON A HIGH NOTE

BE­LOW: There was no way Car­men was go­ing to let episode win­ner and singer Ma­bet van Wyk leave with­out a song.

NER­VOUS GIG­GLES?

LEFT: Con­tes­tants Anita van Rens­burg (left) and Cindy Jou­bert have a good laugh dur­ing the tast­ing ses­sions.

AH, THAT’S BET­TER!

FAR LEFT: Car­men kicked off her high heels for a more com­fort­able walk-and-talk ses­sion in front of the cam­era. The cam­era­man is Ti­aan Tal­jaard.

TIME TO IM­PRO­VISE

The first sea­son was shot at Spier wine farm and the dead­line was tight for this episode as a big func­tion was sched­uled for that evening. The crew also had to deal with a power fail­ure! The only so­lu­tion was to have the tast­ing ses­sions on the stoep, where, as it turned out, the light­ing was great. Car­men and Ilse Mostert chat about her dish while con­tes­tants Elaine Steyn (left) and Anida van der Spuy watch.
