Season 3

Disney Cookabout is hosted by comedic duo Kirsten Mohamed (Chef Kirsten) and Mthunzi Ntoyi (Sous Chef Mthunzi), who guide the cooktestants while they learn how to create simple and appetizing dishes for the whole family.

Two cooktestants per episode compete against one another as they head out through the Cookabout kitchen's famous revolving door to locations in Gauteng and Mpumalanga, where their food adventure begins.

Each episode focuses on the ingredient of the day - while exploring South Africa's fresh, locally farmed wholesome produce, with insights to food we often only see in supermarkets or on our dining room tables.

Once the ingredients are collected, the team is transported back to the magical Cookabout Kitchen to cook a dish which includes the fruit or vegetables they have learnt about.

Two batches of four cooktestants will battle it out each week to take home the Silver Spoon before the final cook-offs when each overall winner is awarded the Disney Cookabout Golden Trophy.

In addition, the two final champions will each win R50,000 towards their school to implement a worthwhile initiative, inspired by Disney's healthy living commitment.

Season 3 journeys to stunning locations around Gauteng and Mpumalanga, ranging from the wide open spaces on large rural farms to smaller organic gardens and hydroponic systems in inner city areas.

For the first time, production moved to Gauteng and kicked off with an open casting call for kids between the ages of 10-13. Hundreds of entries were received and after a two-day audition process, eight new enthusiastic cooktestants were chosen for the brand new season.

The cooktestants hail from various parts of the province, from diverse backgrounds, but all share a love of food, cooking and an eagerness to learn more about the ingredients we see and eat every day.

The series' cooktestants this year are:

Zinhle Makwakwa (12) from Pretoria
Ditiro Simelane(12) from Edenvale
Lateefah Bredenkamp (12) from Kempton Park
Zondwa Mditswa (12) from Roodepoort
Tau Tsotetsi (11) from Ellispark
Kgalalelo Sekele(13) from Leachville
Declan Linaker (12) from Benoni
Talia Naidoo (12) from Bedfordview

Disney Cookabout is produced by Penguin Films for Walt Disney Television.
