Humanities Students Compete in My Kitchen Rules SA

Humanities students, Ms Minenhle Ntuli and Ms Nomthandazo Xaba, participate in the TV show: My Kitchen Rules South Africa.

College of Humanities students, Ms Minenhle Ntuli and Ms Nomthandazo Xaba, recently competed in the yummy local cooking competition, My Kitchen Rules South Africa (MKRSA).

Based on the popular Australian format, the MKRSA show kicked off with a pressure cooker Instant Restaurant section during which five teams from two tables were required to show off their skills. The team with the lowest score from each group was eliminated at the end of the round, with the survivors moving on to the show’s headquarters to face a variety of challenges.

Sparkling and vivacious ‘millennials’, Ntuli (23) and Xaba (20), met at the Idols SA TV show audition and immediately became friends. The two bubbly girls gel in the kitchen and have great fun cooking together.

In MKRSA, the two entertainers wanted to show the world that it is possible to modernise traditional cuisine without diminishing the African experience.

‘We wanted our guests to feel our love. The food we dish up reflects who we are. Technically, we give them “us”,’ said Ntuli.

Ntuli feels she was ‘born to be in the entertainment industry’. Both students are both musicians, radio hosts and MCs for private and school events, and share the same food style and tastes.

They both love eating as much as they love cooking, especially if it is the type of food found in a traditional African home.
