Creating unique flavour combinations, experimenting with different ingredients and most of all family fun, were the aim of the Secret Tribe Chief Cook competition event recently held in Durban. The event brings families together through fun in the kitchen and was part of a competition for Spur’s Secret Tribe members.
15 family teams from across Durban came together at the Berea-based Gecko Culinary Adventures to create culinary delights and compete for the coveted prize of Chief Cook. The teams were made up of mom-and-son, father-and-daughter, sisters and cousins, who went all out to win the top prizes in each category.
Each team was given the exciting challenge of creating authentic cheesy nachos, as well as making their signature Spur burger. To add a twist to their creations, they were also given the opportunity to include their favourite Spur Sauce as an ingredient.
“It was really difficult to choose the winners. All the teams worked so well together, reminding us how important it is for families to spend time together, cook together and eat together”, says Joe Stead, Creative Director from Spur Steak Ranches.
Spur’s Chief Cook event has been managed by John Brown in partnership with Liquid Lingo since 2015. The event has already been held in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Pretoria with overwhelming feedback and extensive PR coverage post event.
