When it comes to hospitality, Masterchef SA judge Benny Masekwameng’s smile and dimples are more inviting than a roaring fire and 3 course executive meal in the exclusive Hoeveld house in Inanda.
He may be gracious, humble and a soft spoken gentleman but he sure can COOK and 19 lucky guests were seated around a table for his spectacular dinner, while viewing MCSA episode 4.
Watching the show with wine, food and funny people (Egoliboy’s chirps would have made Joan Rivers wince) is so much more entertaining and I may just never resort to watching it in bed again.
Everybody was encouraged to tweet , blog and check in and celebs, presenters, bloggers, authors and the little gobsmacked cook got cracking (ok I lie, I was WAY too distracted by the food).
The food was SUBLIME, my favourite course was dessert (duh) but the lamb chops were just perfection and I was so relieved to be surrounded by people HAPPILY eating the fat! (See? happy people eat fat. Period.)
We all contained ourselves until we were gifted Chinese- style boxes and expecting Macaroons or similar, let out yelps of joy when we saw our beautiful Masterchef aprons. Even the most well turned out Diva’s could not wait to pop on their apron (in fact I was driven home in mine!).
It was one of the most memorable evenings and I am ETERNALLY grateful to MNET for the very very special invitation. #MCSAByinvitation
