FUN WITH HIRSCH'S - on Youth day!

Hirsch’s Carnival recently invited primary schools in the area to enter a two man team to win a Russell Hobs Deep Fryer for their school.

The competition took place on Youth Day at Hirsch’s Brakpan and four schools entered. Their goal?  To make the most delicious waffles!WK Du Plessis in Springs entered Andricco Potgieter and Elzarie Griffin,  Kommando Primary School entered Thuto Mthembu and Ntokozo Nhlapo,  Brakpan Primary School entered Hope Mdluli and Sharmah Kadanga, and Dalpark Private entered Ameer Sivanath and Clarence Mcwabe. 

Judges included  Jacaranda DJ Danny Painter, local health guru Arauna Bezuidenhout and Josh Rushton from Joshi Biscotti. Each team was given their dry and wet ingredients to mix and then make their waffle in the Sultan Waffle maker which takes about 6 minutes to cook to a golden brown. After the waffles were made the team was given a series of clues to find the toppings in the store.

Each team was given a point for the toppings and had 10 minutes to come up with a delicious mouth-watering waffle.

The judges judged on the presentation and the taste of the waffle. The judges had a tough job, but in the end the overall winner was Thuto Mtembu and Ntokozo Nhlapo from Kommando Primary School. Jenny-lee McDonald delivered the prize to the Principle of Kommando, Gert Jacobs. “Thank you to Hirsch’s Carnival for the wonderful inititive for the kids. That’s all they talked about and they are very proud of themselves.” Commented Gert.
