10 August 2018 | Art and Entertainment

The Nedbank Kapana Cook-off 2018 final that was held last weekend, brought together contestants from all corners of Namibia to compete for the highest honour of kapana champion.

A mobile container shop with built in electrical stove, freezer, fryer and grill to the value of N$100 000, a cash prize of N$10 000, a MeatMa shopping voucher to the value of N$5 000 and SME development training was the ultimate motivation for finalists to put their best foot forward during the competition final.

The cook-off was concluded in Windhoek in a location known as no-man's land, an area between Katutura and Khomasdal.

The Kapana Cook-off is a Nedbank Namibia initiative hosted in proud partnership with MeatMa, Pick n Pay, Bakpro and the Namibia Chefs Association. For four years the competition has proven that Namibians love and cherish kapana and are excited at the opportunity to showcase their kapana skills on this public platform.

The winner of the Nedbank Kapana Cook-off 2018 for the entry level category is Sakeus Kateya. He prepared the best kapana in the land of the brave according to the Namibian chefs judging the cook-off. The competition was tough with a total of 20 entry level kapana experts participating with the hope of clinching the ultimate title of kapana champion. “I am excited about this opportunity and plan to make a huge success of my container shop. Kapana is my passion in life,” said Kateya. Kapana is more than meat and salsa, it is the unity of our community, an engagement opportunity for friends, families and strangers and it is the celebration of Namibia and its people. “On behalf of Nedbank Namibia and our esteemed partners, I would like to congratulate our finalists for having made it so far in the competition and especially our winners. You have made it; your kapana is the best among the best. Today we have seen the top contestants demonstrate their passion and skill for the unique art of cooking a Namibian favourite, kapana,” said Nedbank's Gernot de Klerk.
