Meet Tannie Poppie and winners Tiaan Langenegger and Mynhardt Joubert

It’s been one of the most popular television shows in years and is credited with making “erfeniskos” (heritage food) and cooking sexy again. KykNET’s Afrikaans cooking reality TV show Kokkedoor took the nation by storm when it was aired earlier this year.

And now visitors to the Good Food & Wine Show can meet some of the participants including winners Mynhardt Joubert and Tiaan Langenegger, the creative duo who won with their adventurous approach to nostalgia food.

Taking place at the Coca Cola Dome in Northgate from September 21 to 24, the Good Food & Wine Show is delighted to be presenting the Kokkedoor Theatre where Season 1′s top four teams will demonstrate live for the first time.

Watch the winners whip up “onthoukos”, reserve your seat for lunch or dinner at the kykNET Kokkedoor pop-up restaurant and be the first to purchase the kykNET Kokkedoor recipe book.

The winners Tiaan Langenegger and Mynhardt Joubert have become well-known names in Afrikaans households.

Tiaan worked with Bertus Basson at Overture till recently and now does his own thing – from ‘Verskyn-en-Verdwyn’ pop-up restaurants to developing his own culinary brand.
Mynhardt, a soulful self-taught nostalgia cook and ex-ballet dancer, is known for taking poetic license with South African classics. Formerly the owner of the funky Bar Bar Black sheep restaurant in Riebeeck Kasteel, he now runs Moerby Kultuur, planning weird and wonderful bespoke events.

Tannie Poppie Coetzer is everyone’s idea of the perfect granny figure. She’s often up at three in the morning – cooking and baking and lists her favourite food as oxtail, samp, pumpkin fritters and souskluitjies. But she do not eat liver and tongue and is allergic to eggs!

Also appearing is Alida Klopper, affectionately known by friends and family as Ida.
Being part of the Kokkedoor competition has been the most exciting and defining moment to date in Ida’s life: “It makes you realise that people do appreciate good food and new ideas. Over the years, I realised that so many people don’t understand food, and how creative one can be with food. It’s a goal of mine to show people – especially young people – the joy of making food by yourself and sharing that with others. Food is more than just getting your tummy full.”

Other winners who will be conjuring up their special magic are Rendil Pietersen of Wellington, Toinette du Toit of Montagu, Magda Johnstone of Bloemfontein and Theresa de Vries of Brandvlei.

Demo and lunch costs R150 (1pm) / Demo + dinner R200 (7pm). Only 25 seats are available.
