Here is the detailed recipe and ingredients cooked by second prize winners – The Cardboard Box Backpackers at the TASA Bush Cook competition.
Johnny boasts: “There’s nothing difficult about making food on the fire! I’m used to bush cooking. That’s how I always prepare my food when I’m on the road. No other way of making food compares to cooking food on the fire. The taste is just different; it’s simply the best food you’ll ever eat!”
Mona Lisa adds that coming from the northern regions of the country, she grew up with fire-cooked food. “But I’ve never made a three-course meal on the fire before, so that was a first for me!”
Each team member received two B&B nights at Etosha Village/Desert Camp or Hotel Zum Kaiser; and a N$200 dinner voucher at any Taleni Africa Property.
