Braaibroodjies for the the win!

Mar 10, 2017, Author: Hello Joburg

If you are crazy about a good braai – then you probably are a world champion braaibroodjie creator!

The first ever Campworld Braaibroodjie Challenge recently drew to a very “munchtastic” conclusion at the Beeld Holiday Show on Saturday 25th February. A panel of expert judges munched on the tastiest toasties in town, and the top twelve braaibroodjie finalists had their creations showcased at the Campworld Braaibroodjie Finals.

Participants created their most scrumptious Braaibroodjie recipes at regional Campworld dealers during October and November last year.

Local Chefs Alison Kiewit and Hanno van Eeden from Diep in de Berg in Pretoria were then tasked with recreating the 12 braaibroodjie finalists’ recipes, and the panel of judges had a very tough job selecting the winners.

When it came to the crunch (or should we say the munch), Jan Brits from Limpopo Caravans and Outdoor Centre walked away with the first prize of a R5 000 Campworld voucher, Tracy Graham from Sunseeker Alberton won the second prize of a R2 500 Campworld voucher, and Andre Greyling from Campworld Nelspruit walked away with his third place prize of a R1 000 voucher.
