The popular international series, Chopped, will air on Wednesday 23 July on Food Network, DStv Channel 175 at 9pm.
Chopped SA will follow the same format as the international series. Episodes feature four chefs that have to create astonishing 3-course meals from everyday ingredients. Contestants are “chopped” after each course until the remaining chef claims victory with a cash prize of R40 000.
Denvor Phokaners will be hosting the show with Jenny Morris, Siba Mtongana, David van Staden, Rebecca Hurst, Lindsay Venn and Rueben Riffel on the judging panel.
The series will give more than 40 local chefs the opportunity to compete for the cash spoils in the Chopped kitchen.
