18-year old student crowned SA’s boerewors king

| Awards and achievements

Eighteen-year old student Delano Jasper from Wellington in the Western Cape was announced the winner of the 28th annual Championship Boerewors competition

Jasper’s recipe - South Africa’s number one boerewors – will be available in all Shoprite and Checkers stores throughout South Africa from Friday, 11 September 2020.

“I’m lost for words,” exclaimed Jasper moments after the winner’s announcement. “It’s the first time I entered this competition, so I really had no expectations, but we had a family challenge to make the finals this year.”

Apart from the ultimate boerewors bragging rights and the esteemed title of 2020 Championship Boerewors winner, Jasper has also won a brand new Toyota Fortuner 2.4 GD-6 RB 6AT. 

Second and third place went to Paul Jordaan from Bloemfontein (Free State) and John Marais from Vredendal (Western Cape) respectively.

Jasper’s mom, Yvonne Blaauw, was crowned winner of the Championship Boerewors competition in 2018. 

This year’s Championship Boerewors finale was largely a virtual affair - the top 10 finalists joined remotely to oversee the braaiing of their boerewors by chefs Kevin Gibbs and Dion Vengatass, member of the South African National Culinary Team.

An independent judging panel from the South African Chefs Association (SACA) once again took charge of the judging process.

The top 10 finalists were:

        Ben Mhlongo from Hazelview, Mpumalanga

        Delano Jasper from Wellington, Western Cape

        Dewald Rabie from Kroonstad, Free State

        Granthom Damonse from Paarl, Western Cape

        Henriette Marshall from Hermanus, Western Cape

        Jaco van Lilll from Vredendal, Western Cape

        Japie Swanepoel from Springs, Gauteng

        John Marais from Vredendal, Western Cape

        Mathilda Kitshoff from Randfontein, Gauteng

        Paul Jordaan from Bloemfontein, Free State

 

Shoprite and Checkers are proud of the country’s boerewors tradition and celebrate it by hosting the annual Championship Boerewors competition, a nationwide search for South Africa’s very best boerewors.
