SOUTH AFRICAN AVOCADO GROWERS’ ASSOCIATION (SAAGA) ADD AN AVO (OR TWO) TO A R200 MEAL FOR TWO CULINARY SCHOOL, STUDENT COMPETITION

These rules apply to the Add an Avo (or two) to a R200 meal for two Culinary School, Student Competition (hereinafter referred to as “the competition”). This competition is being run by: The South African Avocado Growers’ Association (SAAGA). Please contact Lauren Anceriz on lauren@protactic.co.za or 072 756 8463 (weekdays office hours) if you do not understand any part of these rules or if you have any questions about these rules or the mechanics of the competition.

By entering the competition, you confirm that you have read and agree to be legally bound to these rules.

 

WHAT IS THE ADD AN AVO (OR TWO) TO A R200 MEAL FOR TWO, CULINARY SCHOOL STUDENT COMPETITION?

The lockdown situation has forced South Africans to cook at home and for many, stick to a tight budget, while trying to maintain healthy and nutritious meals which are still tasty. Thankfully local avocados are in season, which means they are readily available.

Nutritious and delicious, avos can be included as part of a healthy eating plan as they contain potassium, and their high monounsaturated fat content may help to reduce blood cholesterol levels.

We are inviting you, as up-and-coming young chefs, to create one main meal for two which does not cost more than R200.  The avocado must be the hero of the meal but you may use any other complementary ingredients which will result in a hearty, nutritious and tasty main meal for two.

Send us one photo of your meal with an appetising short description, a recipe which includes a cost for each ingredient and the total cost for the full meal for two. Only one entry per student. Remember that a big part of judging will be based on visual appeal so make sure your meal looks and sounds mouth-watering!  Just by doing that you might be the winner of one of three cash prizes of between R3 500 to R7 500!

Your pics will be posted on the iloveavocadoSA Facebook page in an album specially created for your school.  We will (and you can too) invite fans to Like their favourite meal and one of those people who vote, will be randomly chosen to win R2 500! However the number of Likes, an entry receives on Facebook, will not influence this year’s judging process.

The meals submitted will be judged by six SAAGA local market development committee (LMDC) members as well as one of our 2019 Avo Ambassadors, Karen Hart, food editor of Kuier and LitNet, according to the criteria listed below.
