A panel of judges will select the finalists, and then the finalists will prepare their dish to present for the taste test.

The winner will walk away with excellent prizes such as vouchers, braai accessories and more.

The Potjie Master will also have the privilege of appearing in our PE Express edition of September 21 as Gqeberha’s Potjie Master.
