Chopped South Africa is a fast-paced cooking competition show where the skills, speed, and ingenuity of four chefs are tested to the limit as they compete against each other and the clock under the scrutiny of three expert judges.
Their challenge is to turn out an extraordinary 3-course meal with every-day items and a challenging combination of ingredients to win over the judges.
Course by course one chef will be chopped from the competition until only one is left standing. The stakes are high, everybody wants to walk away with the honours and the R40 000 prize that is on the line
The chefs go head-to-head bringing only their knives and knowledge to the cooking stations where they un- pack their baskets of mystery ingredients to create a dish on the fly. The baskets are filled with unexpected products and combinations and change with every course. Frankfurters for dessert, white chocolate for starters, and chocolate coated peanuts for the main course. Whatever the ingredients or however unusual the combinations, our chefs have only seconds to think about their creation in their bid to create a round-winning dish to impress the judges with taste, creativity and presentation.
But that’s only half the pressure. Once they’ve completed their dish, they’ve got to survive the dreaded Chopping Block
Sitting behind the Chopping Block are three expert judges geared to zone in on the slightest mishap or mistake, ready to pass their culinary critique, expecting the professional chefs to deliver on their own high standards.
Host Denvor Phokaners has his job cut out to help put the chef s through their time keeping paces in this high energy, high pressure show whilst also guiding the judges to concur in reaching their final decisions.
Chopped is a game of passion, expertise and skills, the question is who will survive the final cut? The answer is on Chopped South Africa.
