Edwin Kokkedoortjie Winner

Kokkedoortjie Season One had me nailed the TV every Wednesday for 12 long episodes.

Kokkedoortjie Season One is a sequel on the ever popular Kokkedoor and Koekedoor Series on Kyknet. All from the pen of  Errieda Du Toit, the doyenne of all things cooking and food related in South Africa. She blogs on her ever-popular blog Huiskok en she can tell a story like none other. For Kokkedoortjie she had a co-writer Martjie Malan.

Edwin Theron (13) is the winner of kykNET’s popular Kokkedoortjie food reality series for kids! This young chef from Worcester competed against Christi Myburgh (14) from Bloemfontein in the final episode that was aired on Wednesday evening (28 June).  Both boys had to prepare a three-course menu for judges Mari-Louis Guy and Nic van Wyk. Edwin’s take on Avocado Ritz for a starter, chicken cordon bleu for main course and chocolate pudding with cherries secured him the title of winner.

“I honestly can’t believe that I won, especially because Christi is formidable in the kitchen,” says Edwin. For Edwin, it is important to live life to the fullest and to take calculated risks. However, he never anticipated to win Kokkedoortjie and only entered for the fun of it. “Kokkedoortjie changed my life and today I’m proud to tell the whole world that I love to cook!”

Edwin’s main prize is a Mediterranean boat cruise compliments of family holiday specialists Pentravel and will depart on Saturday 1st July with his mom, Marietjie, and sister, Martli, on the holiday of a lifetime. But it isn’t all bad news for Christi… In the next couple of days he and his family will be enjoying the bliss and beauty of Mauritius, also sponsored by Pentravel.
