Home cooks are invited to enter their own #WaterWise cheesy recipes for the #YourWheyWithCheese cook-off via email ( or by inboxing SA Cheese Festival on Facebook. Closing date is 10 March and there is NO entry fee!

The competition will be judged by Jenny Morris, executive chef Craig Davids and local foodie Sihle Ngobese.

The Top 30 contenders will be invited to cook their recipes at the Giggling Gourmet School of Cooking on Saturday 17 March in Cape Town. A Top 15 will be chosen and will cook off against each other for a spot in the semi-finals at the SA Cheese Festival.

Two contestants will go head to head on the Friday, and another two will do the same on the Saturday of the Festival. The winner of each cook-off will compete in the finals on Sunday.
