Watt's in the Pot?


WATT’S IN THE POT?  is our virtual cooking show.  This event explores delicious recipes, energy efficient cooking appliances and easy to follow “HOW TO” saving tips and tricks in the kitchen.

You are invited to share your recipes for dishes inspired by energy efficient ideas.  These could include nifty heating methods, insulation cookers or water saving meaures.  We cannot wait to try them all!

Important dates:
2 June - call for public entries
3 July - closing date for submissions

8 July - Six finalists will be notified

17 July - Live Cook-off

The recipes will be judged by a panel of celebrity judges in order to choose the 6 best recipes.

The 6 finalists will be invited to cook their recipes as part of a live cooking show with the judges present (similar to the ‘Master Chef’ cooking show) at an industrial kitchen in Cape Town where strict Covid-19 regulations will be in place. The live cooking show will be live streamed on Youtube on 17 July. Pencil it in your diary.
