Swakopmund - Otis Finck

Stefan Erasmus, Benjamim Isak, his daughter Ruusa Isak and Ursula Malan are the coastal representatives in the Shoprite/Checkers Boerewors Competition final.

They will compete with 56 other finalist for the first prize, an Isuzu 4x4 bakkie, in Windhoek on 22 June.

Twenty-five hopefuls competed for four available slots in the coastal round of the competition held at Platz am Meer shopping mall in Swakopmund.

The top three boerewors finalists’ recipes will be sent to South Africa on 28 June with the buy, braai and voting process set to commence on 26 July.

Packets of this boerewors marked A, B and C will be available at Checkers outlets countrywide and the public then has to vote for the best boerewors via SMS.

The top three boerewors winners will be in action at the Biltongfees in Windhoek on 26 and 27 July.

The Boerewors King will be crowned on 24 September and the winning boerewors specimen will become available in stores as from 27 September.

The winning recipe is used by Checkers for its Namibian Champ boerewors brand in shops.

The current champion is Wikus Malan of the butchery at Spar in Keetmanshoop and he hails from a long line of butchers. He currently works in Mariental.

The renowned fashion designer Cobus Moller won the competition in 2016.

Sanet Prinsloo, the organiser of the event, said the Namibian Chefs Association (NCA) started the competition in Namibia ten years ago, after it originated in South Africa 25 years ago.

The first competition was hosted at a shop in Maerua Mall Windhoek.

Qualified chefs handle the selection and judging process. The NCA also facilitates training for the judges.

The competition consists of two rounds. In the first round the entrants have to represent raw specimens of the boerewors they produced as well as the recipes.
