The call for entries for season two of The Pavilion Junior Chef competition are now open.
Speaking at the media launch this at the Centre Court in Pavilion Shopping Center, radio and television personality Terence Pillay said the competition is a digital live reality show that sees young nine to twelve-year-old children go head to head in three cooking showdowns, with the winners from each of those showdowns then competing in the grand finale where one of the children will walk away with a prize package of close to R100 000.
The Pavilion General Manager, Nisha Kemraj said the judging process will be based on recipe, cooking experience, camera friendliness and personality and that the ultimate winner be chosen during a glitzy finale at The Pavilion with a live audience watching.
She said the competition is an ideal fit for them as a shopping centre.
“We are very family focused as well as being on the cutting edge of food and fashion trends so we are ideally positioned to host this competition. And who knows, one day when one of these kids go on to become a world-renowned chef, we can proudly say it all started here at the Pavilion in Durban,” said Kemraj.
