It has been a 13-week journey of cooking challenges, twists and turns, taste sensations, peppered with a touch of drama. But like all good things, the first season of KFC Taste Kitchen has come to an end . . . but it’s a new beginning for Ali Nangamso and Nosizwe Mji, who were named the winners in a riveting finale that aired on Friday, 6 October at 19:00 on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161).
The culinary power couple, whose love and support for each other came alive on screen, won KFC’s first-ever reality cooking show, and took home the coveted R1 million rand prize as well as the title of the Ultimate Home Cooking Duo. The runner-ups were Natasha Gumede and Nandi Tshabalala who walked away with another amazing prize of half a million.
Thabisa Mkhwanazi, Public Affairs Director at KFC Africa says, “What a journey it has been. KFC believes in home grown talent and providing South Africans with an opportunity to showcase their entrepreneurial spirit and their love for Finger Lickin’ Good food. We wanted to inspire home cooks and take them on a journey of innovation and explosive taste with the hope of inspiring new local side dishes. Taste Kitchen has managed to do that in an entertaining way. Congratulations to Ali and Nosizwe and our runners up Nandi and Natasha, we hope this will give them a platform to reach greater heights.”
