JOHANNESBURG. 29 August, 2012 – Amateur cooks such as Australia’s Adam Liaw and South Africa’s own MasterChef winner Deena Naidoo, have had their lives transformed thanks to their cooking skills.


Now two enthusiastic South African home chefs have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and earn the chance to compete in Dubai against amateurs from around the Middle East and Africa region, as well as receiving a R20 000 cash prize.


The LG Life Tastes Good Championship – a huge hit around the world and one of this country’s most popular cooking competitions – is coming to the Good Food & Wine Show for the first time. The food extravaganza takes place in Johannesburg from September 21 to 24 and the competition will be open to all South Africans.


Amateur chefs will be required to cook their favourite family dishes revolving around a Heritage Day theme and explain just why they are so important to them.


Adam Liaw, winner of Australian MasterChef will be one of the judges: “I have always said that my last meal would be Hainanese chicken rice. It’s probably my favourite food and one that has so much history and so many memories for me, particularly of my grandfather. My family and their cooking have shaped who I am. My biggest culinary influence would probably be my grandmother Kwei-Eng Chew. She cooked most of the meals I’ve eaten in my life and a lot of her approach to food rubbed off on me.


“My trip to Johannesburg last year is still one of my personal highlights since winning MasterChef Australia. I can't wait to return and am thrilled to be able to meet all the amateur chefs who will be entering the LG Life Tastes Good competition, to taste their food and share their culinary stories,” he says.

LG Life Tastes Good Cooking Championship 

The LG Life Tastes Good Championship is the only cooking competition globally that is endorsed by renowned organisations such as the World Association of Chefs Societies and Le Cordon Bleu.


To enter, gather two family recipes together with instructions on how to prepare them, photographs and an explanation as to why these dishes mean so much to you. Then download an entry form from or Entries close on September 15.


The top teams will be invited to participate in a timed cook-off at the Johannesburg Good Food & Wine Show.


The winning pair will receive R20 000 cash and an LG Charcoal Lightwave Oven each. They will also win a trip to Dubai, to compete in the Middle East and Africa LG Life’s Tastes Good Championship.
