Ready Steady Cook South Africa is a collaboration between Primedia Studios and production company Rose & Oaks Media. It is based on the long-running BBC show that is distributed worldwide by Banijay.

The 260-episode SABC commission will consist of two competing teams, with a South African chef on each side paired with enthusiastic home cooks ready to challenge their creativity with a mystery bag of everyday ingredients in a 20-minute cook-off.

Anele Mdoda, co-owner of Rose & Oaks Media, said: “Our new local version of Ready Steady Cook is like a paella or a potjie of everything that makes for good television. While the dramatic battle between Team Red Tomato and Team Green Pepper is packed with suspense, it’s also sprinkled with star power and non-stop fun.

“We’re thrilled to have Moshe as the on-screen coordinator of all the magic and madness cooked up by the two competing teams on Ready Steady Cook South Africa. Moshe is the perfect balance of sugar, salt, flavour and heat… funnily enough, everything you need to make a stellar dish.”

Popular chefs that will feature in the show include Wandile Mabaso, Neo Nontso, Fehmida Osman-Latib, Kamini Pather, Kelly Njokweni, Liziwe Matloha, Lorna Maseko, Lufuno Sinthumule, Mmule Setati and Nthi Ramaboa.

They will be tasked to create three mouthwatering dishes with the food items brought along by their Team Red Tomato or Team Green Pepper partner within 20 minutes. Once the time runs out, the studio audience votes to determine the episode’s winning team.

Ready Steady Cook South Africa will air on SABC3 from March 18.
