The semi-finalists have been informed and they will supply a dozen (12) of their koeksisters for the next round of judging.

 

On 24 May the judging panel, including members of the South African Chefs Association (SACA) and members of the Women’s Agricultural Union (WAU) will taste and evaluate the semi-finalists’ koeksisters and select a total of three (3) finalists.

 

This is how we’ll crown the champion:

 

The judging panel, including members of the South African Chefs Association (SACA) and members of the Women’s Agricultural Union (WAU), will select fifteen (15) semi finalists and they will be requested to bake a dozen (12) of their koeksisters for the next round of judging. The same judging panel will then taste and evaluate the semi nalists’ koeksisters and select three (3) finalists. Each finalist wins a trip to the Innibos Festival valued at R6 000. Three thousand three hundred visitors to the Innibos Festival (27 - 30 June 2018) will get the opportunity to taste the finalists’ koeksisters and vote for their favourite. The baker with the most votes will walk away with the title of Huletts Koeksister Champion 2018 as well as a R100 000 cash prize!
