Win R50 000 with your home made soup recipe!

Do your family and friends celebrate when you tell them you’re making soup? Do you love experimenting with ingredients until you perfect a recipe? If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, then you just might have what it takes to win the Woolworths Home-made Soup Recipe Competition.

Following the success of our inaugural competition last year, we are excited to announce that we’re once again inviting amateur cooks to send in their very best, original soup recipes.

Not only will the winner receive a Woolworths Gift Card for R50 000; their soup will be included in Woolworths soup range for 2012.

Entries for the 2011 Woolworths Soup Recipe Competition close on 15 May 2011.

Recipes must be original and should be clear and specific, showing a list of ingredients and their weights, as well as a step-by-step method of preparation.

Having received hundreds of innovative entries from all over the country last year, we are hoping this year’s contest will attract even more scrumptious, imaginative soup recipes.


Finalists will be selected by the Woolies soup experts and TASTE team.

The top recipes will be prepared by qualified chefs and judged by a prestigious panel which includes well-known chef David Grier, who has recently joined Woolworths on their Good Food search, food blogger Andy Fenner (aka Jamie Who?), TASTE Magazine’s Food Editor Abigail Donnelley, and ‘Eat Out Chef of the Year’ David Higgs of the award winning Rust & Vrede restaurant.


If you’d like an idea of what a winning soup tastes like, you’ll want to try the Bean & Boerewors Soup which won top honours for Allan Haschick of Port Elizabeth last year. It made its debut at Woolies during April.

PS: If you have any trouble entering your recipe, or if you prefer to or want to send us a picture too, you can mail it directly to us at [email protected], indicating that you accept the terms and conditions.

Congratulations to Kelly Chrystal whose 'Durban mutton curry' soup was chosen as the winning soup in this year's home-made soup competition. Enjoy that R50 000 Woolies' gift voucher! We'll post a Q&A; with Kelly on our website soon. And you'll be able to taste her soup in Woolies stores next year.
