Stars Shine Brightly at the 5th Annual White Star Celebrity Cook-Off

Culinary skills were on full display as some of South Africa’s celebrities cooked up a storm at this year’sWhite Star’s Celebrity Cook-Off. The event took place at Witbanks top entertainment destination-The Ridge Casino on the 17th September 2016. The fifth edition of this popular cook-off challenge served up a day of appetising dishes as a mix of diverse personalities competed for this year’s title.

The event was MC’d by funny man Skhumba, who had the contestants and the crowd in stitches throughout the duration of the competition.


White Star handpicked celebrities who have a keen interest and love for food, and paired them in teams. These teams were then challenged to cook creative, delicious starters and main meals within a time frame of two hours using only a mystery basket of ingredients, along with South Africa’s favourite maize meal, White Star.
