At the end of the first season of My Kitchen Rules South Afrca (MKRSA) last year, M-Net confirmed that season 2 auditions would happen early this year.

Now the broadcaster has confirmed that auditions will take place in Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg on Saturday 13 January and Sunday 14 January respectively.

The details are:

Durban - the Unilever HQ - 15 Nollsworth Crescent, La Lucia Ridge Office Estate; 

Cape Town - Mac Suppliers - 32 Benbow Avenue, Goodwood;

Johannesburg - MLK School of Cooking - 44 Rietfontein Road, Glenmarais, Kempton Park. 

Judges David Higgs and J’Something are back and there advice is to keep it simple but flavourful with your audition dish.

“I think what we learnt from Season 1 of My Kitchen Rules SA is that simplicity is key,” says award-winning Chef and MKRSA judge David Higgs. 

“To make a good impression at the auditions, keep things simple and cook something that is close to your heart. Something that has a story,” he advises. 

Passionate home cook and judge J’Something agrees: “Stick to the brief and you can’t go wrong,” he adds. “Make a cold dish that will blow us away.”

You and your fellow foodie partner will have to prepare a cold dish for our panel of judges that you bring with to your audition in a cooler box with ice to ensure that the dish stays fresh. You can prepare anything you like, but your dish should show some flair, innovation and – most of all – your personal style! You will also have to provide the necessary crockery and equipment for plating your dish when you get there.  

You can also join the MKRSA Season 2 Whatsapp group in order to receive more information, such as top tips, directions to the venues and even the location pins for the big audition day, by simply visiting and clicking on the link provided.  

Entrants must be over the age of 18 by 13 January 2018 and must be South African citizens or permanent residents.
