The TV series ‘Chopped South Africa’ will follow the same format as the famous internationally acclaimed series. Each episode will feature four chefs who are tasked with turning a selection of ingredients into an extraordinary three-course meal. After each course, a contestant gets
“chopped” until the last person standing claims victory with a cash prize of R40,000.

The food TV series ‘Chopped South Africa’ will be presented by TV presenter and entrepreneur Denvor Phokaners, the co-presenter of the SABC2 travelogue programme, MooiLoop!, and judges will include South African food celebrities Jenny Morris, Siba Mtongana, David van Staden, Lindsay Venn and Rebecca Hurst.
