Annemarie Robertson was crowned South Africa’s first ever Top Chef South Africa on SABC 3.

She went head to head with Ayabonga Gope from The Deck Housein Cape Town in a marathon battle to produce a four course meal for the judges.

At the end, Annemarie, executive chef at Burrata, Bocca & Open Door walked away with the R100 000 in prize money.

Both Gope and Robertson joined Pippa Hudson in studio to share their experiences of being in the competition.

Gope says it was a challenging exercise having the judges watching your every move and Robertson says it is not for the faint hearted.

The biggest stress is always going to be the judges tasting your food because you've put your heart and soul in what you've made.
