The Challengers in the Potjie Competition at Noordhoek Farm Village this Heritage Day are a vast and varied selection and we look forward to the competition as the cook off against the 3 restaurants at Noordhoek Farm Village (the Foodbarn, The Toad in the Village and Cafe Roux).
Visitors can watch rugby, bring the kids for entertainment, watch the teams in action, be entertained by eMzantsi carnival performers and finally get to taste the fab potjies for just R20 per bowl from 15h00. All proceeds from potjie sales to Masiphumelele Rugby Club
Introducing Team No 7: The butcher, the baker & candlestick makers!
Entrants and applications come in all shapes and sizes. A plea bargain, novice claims, motivating telephone calls and Noordhoek connections were all part of this entry… here is the written version…! We think it’s an excellent entry.
Dear Noordhoek Farm Village
I may be the wife of a local Noordhoek man,
but behind every successful, motivated, helpful, well mannered man, is an even better woman me! Thats where I come in! I’m just kidding.
In short……… I am the “mother cooker” of all our friends & family, far & wide! My passion for food is endless. Flavour is my shmavour. I love Food… what can I say. I couldnt imagine a “food” day at my second home, the Village, happening without being in it!
Seeing as Saturday is Heritage Day, my teammates would consist of the following:
We will obviously have many of our friends wanting to be Candlestick Makers……. so our team may expand somewhat without inviting them….. Will this be allowed?? Can they sit in our inner circle! I hope that you would consider us for this Fantabulisticly Fun Filled Cooking Day!!!!!!
Lots of Love, The Butcher, The Baker & The Candlestick Makers!!
Noordhoek Farm Village wishes you luck in your first competition (sounds like you have a great deal of back-up for moral support though!)
