Potjiekos Cooking Competition in Sandton

Potjiekos has been part of the South African culture for many centuries. The most notable aspect of this traditional cooking method that sets it apart from other cooking methods is that it takes place outdoors. When the pot was taken out of the kitchen and placed over an open fire, it became a potjie and developed as part of our South African heritage. Commonly the potjie used is a rounded, potbellied, three-legged cast iron pot.

The Potjiekos Cooking Competition usually starts with ice-breakers that can also be used as an opportunity to divide your group into teams. Teams then proceed to barter with each other for the Potjiekos ingredients that they need. The cooking begins with at least one member of each team watching the team’s potjie. Once the potjies are ready, they are presented for judging, and the winner announced. The only thing left is to eat the Potjiekos and enjoy a great time of socializing and getting to know your team members better.
