Introducing Team No 6: REFONZ
Team Refonz were probably the most eager entrants, checking in regularly to see if their entry had been accepted, while the judging panel sifted through the applications. Passion deserves opportunity so herewith meet Team Refonz.
Refonz are passionate foodies and proudly South African. We love the potjie and the time and effort it requires to create a really special dish. When done with love and passion, the potjie feeds plenty of people and tastes great. Potjiekos is a shared taste across all South African cultures so a great idea for braai day and Heritage Day. Cooking meat and vegetables together over an open fire is an indispensable part of being South African and the potjie pot should be standard in any home! We hope our Team REFONZ will be registered so that you may taste the awesomeness for yourself!
Good luck on Saturday Team REFONZ – with your passion, enthusiasm and love of food, love of South Africa (and the potjie in particular) we look forward to tasting your potjie pot!
