Hirsch’s KZN Regional Junior Super Chef competition kicked off in their Hillcrest branch recently when they hosted the semi finals of Junior Super Chef 2016. 10 contestants between the ages of 8 to 13 are chosen to cook from a mystery basket of items with the use of a microwave and a induction hob.
Commented Hirsch Hillcrest PRO, Taryn Taylor, “Participants cut their own meat and prepare one starter or Dessert and main in the space of one hour. They were judged on the cleanliness of their stations, their timeliness and the taste of the meals prepared.”
‘I absolutely loved attending this event and it is such a brilliant initiative by Hirsch’s. Well done to all the contestants, you are all winners.’ said guest Devandre Ernest.
The winner for Junior Super Chef Hillcrest was ‘Maximillion Schumann’. Maximillion prepared crumbed Chicken Strips with Basil Pesto as a starter and a creamy mushroom and pepper pasta as the main dish.
‘The meal was fantastic and surprised the taste buds, Maximillion prepared such amazing food. A qualified chef in the making.’ said Junior Super Chef Judge, Catherine from Fennel and Fig.
Maximillion took home a Defy Stick blender and has made it into the finals of Junior Super Chef 2016 which will take place in the Celebrity Kitchen at The East Coast Radio House and Garden Show on the 8th of July 2016 at 17.30 pm.
