Last night, almost every South African was sitting on the edge of their seats rooting for the two ladies that made it to the MasterChefSA finals, Kamini and Leandri……..
At the end of last year, I happened to be tasting cheese and wine at Fairview Wines, guess who else what there? Kamini and a friend were tasting and the friend was a bit loud and I couldn’t help but hear her mention something about Kamini getting ready for the second season of MasterChefSA. At the time, Kamini and myself were not acquainted. However, from that pincident I knew that she was going to be one of the contestants. As a result I was not suprised when I saw her at the Pizza Challenge/Food Blogger Episode. I got a chance to chat with her at the media dinner hosted by Tsogo Sun and told her about her trying out wines and preparing for MasterChef. According to what she told me, she put in a lot of preparation into being a contestant. Therefore, it is not suprising that she took the title.
On the otherhand, Leandri was awesome, the girl really represented! I am sure all the scientists including science students in the country were rooting for her. She showed the country scientists are not confined into being lab rats and I loved how she applied her science knowledge into her cooking! These two ladies made up a great show last night. They kept us entertained and triggered a social media frenzy! Viewers had differing opinions as to who was more deserving of the title. What do you think of last night’s episode?
