My Kitchen Rules SA

Men and women 18 - 100 Years old, All regions


M-Net is inviting pairs of amateur chefs to showcase their flair for food and ability to turn their living space into instant restaurants in the TV show My Kitchen Rules South Africa.

Your "partner" for the series can be anyone from your spouse to your best friend, neighbour, brother or mother etc.

For the open auditions, the pairs need to wow the My Kitchen Rules team with a cold dish of their choice - which can be a starter, main course or dessert. Contestants need to arrive at the venue with the ingredients or dish packed in a cooler box with ice to ensure that the meal stays fresh. Tables will be provided to plate the dish for presentation but all the elements must be ready for assembly, as well as all the necessary equipment and crockery for plating.

Both members of the team also have to be South African citizens or have permanent residence status.

Participants also need to be 18 years old by 1 June 2017.

Open auditions for My Kitchen Rules South Africa will take place between 08:00 and 17:00 at the following venues:

Johannesburg – 27 May and 28 May 2017
International Hotel School
4 Kikuyo road, Sunninghill, Sandton
