Subsequently, five finalists will be selected to compete in a live cook-off competition on Saturday, 23 March 2013 at Pick n Pay, Auas Valley, Windhoek.
The winner will walk away with the first prize – a whopping N$ 23,000-00, including major cash prizes worth N$ 10,000 each from Pick n Pay Namibia and FNB Namibia respectively, as well as a short course from the Polytechnic Hotel School.
Lizette Foot, General Manager of Team Namibia commented: “The purpose of the campaign is to highlight the fantastic food and drink options made available by Team Namibia members, and simultaneously educating consumers that there is no need to rely on imported goods when it comes to preparing a good quality meal.
Popular cooking shows such as Masterchef and Ready Steady Cook have created a new movement in food appreciation around the world, and we want to encourage all Namibian foodies to indulge in this trend with the fantastic local produce available right here on our doorstep”.
