Season 2

A tale of fairies, failed French cuisine and flirtation, the brand new season of Come Dine With Me South Africa on BBC Entertainment begins with a bang.

The second season of the primetime cookery show again sees four amateur chefs attempt to wow and outwit each other with their culinary and hospitality skills, in a bid to win a R5,000 cash prize as well as R5,000 worth of Pick 'n Pay vouchers.

Get ready to meet teacher Anne-Marie Pavkovitch, Greek tycoon Manny Hatziandreou, financial manager and fairy aficionado Jo-Anne Van Niekerk and event manager Simphiwe Mtetwa.

This first episode kicks off in cluttered collector Anne-Marie Pavkovitch's home, where you'll be lucky to find space to put a static miniature cat in, let alone swing it!

Manny finds the attentions of Jo-Anne and host Anne-Marie a little too hot to handle at times, while superior-in-all-ways Simphiwe puts aside his glamorous life for one week to indulge the mere mortals around him.

Day two is the turn of Greek stock broker and show lothario Manny, who tiptoes around his mama in the kitchen as he prepares his Greek themed menu.

While singleton Jo-Anne might have a penchant for fairies, her flirting with Manny is anything but delicate, complimenting Manny on his "orgasmic" starter. While Anne-Marie is left to dream of what might have been had her competition not gunned so obviously for what could have been her toy boy.

Fairy aficionado Jo-Anne is the host of day three, but with Simphiwe's scathing and mostly wayward comments on everything from food to German cars dominating more and more as the nights progress, Jo-Anne has her work cut out to have the focus fall on her own rather delicately envisioned and prepared evening.

Her self-confessed obsession with fairies lands like a lead balloon before her horrified guests, while Jo-Anne's flirtation with Manny also threatens to burn out of control when her blowtorch for her Crème Brulee almost lights more than just a romance.

It's the final night and having boasted all week of how much lower other mortals are, Simphiwe hosts his Marie Antoinette themed evening with a verbose French menu including Terrine de Foies de Volaille.

But when the peasants storm the palace gates, they find no palace, no gate, and no royalty.
