Here are the detailed recipes as presented by third prize winners Wild Dog Safaris at the TASA Bush cook competition. 

Says Leslie: “Cooking on the fire can be quite a task, especially when it comes to perfecting the art of cooking prawns on the grill! The table setting was another challenge, as we wanted to stay with the Bush Cook theme. We stuck with shades of brown and presented our main course on wooden plates. While the cooking was great fun, walking away as the third prize winners was the best part!”

Each team member was awarded one night B&B at the Waterberg Guest Farm and a dinner for two at the Kalahari Sands Hotel.
