Disney Channel and production house Penguin Films are on a search for food savvy kids for the new, third season of Disney Cookabout.

The show's looking for 10 to 13-year-old contestants, who are based in Gauteng. This is the first time that the series is being filmed in Gauteng - it was in the Western Cape last season.

In case you aren't familiar with the format...  it's an interactive cooking show where the contestants - known as cooktestants - go on exciting food adventures, learning where our food comes from, before battling it out in the kitchen using the ingredient of the day.

Eight cooktestants compete in the challenges over 18 episodes and two winners will be crowned at the end. Both will win a Cookabout trophy and R50,000 for a project at their school.

How to apply

Auditionees need to record a short video clip sharing a little bit about themselves and what makes them the perfect choice for the show. 

Parents are encouraged to assist their children in creating their video and submitting the application.

The video should be in mp4 format, be no more than 250MB in size and 1 (one) minute in duration. 


You can submit your application on the show's website here: Disney Cookabout Entries

Entries close on Sunday, 20 January at 22h00.

You'll find the FAQs and T&Cs on the site.

Parents and their children need to be available for the final auditions from 31 January to 2 February 2019, 08h00 to 18h00.
