Let’s welcome the judges
Culinary extraordinaire Siba Mtongana and Paul Hartmann – owner of the South African Chefs Academy – are the judges that will be tasked with crowning one of 12 contestants as “South Africa’s Best Amateur Baker.”
They’ll be judging the hopeful contestants on three weekly tasks:
- A signature bake: the bakers get to show off what they’re known for
- A technical bake: one basic recipe is given to the bakers to create and present for judging
- A showstopper bake: the contestants bring forward their skills and talent to create a more challenging bake
We’re looking forward to seeing (and learning from) the judges’ expertise in their judging process. It’s going to be a nail biter!
Say hello to the hosts
Comedy gold is promised this season with the hosting prowess of Lesego Tlhabi, AKA Coconut Kelz, and Glen Biderman-Pam.
A dynamic duo that we can’t wait to see on the big (TV) screen.
Season 4 of The Great South African Bake Off starts on the 9th of August 2023 at 8PM on BBC Lifestyle channel 174. We’ll be counting down the days until then.
