The "Kwaiest Koesister" Search Is On

The first World Koesister Day is coming, here's how your one can win big

It's Koe, not Koek. The search for the kwaiest Koesister is on. Tell your mom, dad and the aunty around the corner that Vannie Kaap and Radisson RED want to take their Koesister Recipe global.

To celebrate the first World Koesister Day, on 1 September, the Radisson RED in V&A is hosting an event to find the best koesister recipe in Cape Town.

KOE AND KOEK, WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE
A Koeksister is a plaited (twirly), crunchy, syrupy version identified by Afrikaners. The koesister is the original soft, doughy, cinnamon tinged, Cape Malay version that's dipped in coconut. 

The former is often found in supermarkets and shops, everyday. The latter is traditionally sold on Sundays all over the Cape Flats.


WHAT’S HAPPENING ON WORLD KOESISTER DAY?
Radisson RED will be hosting a koesister competition to inaugurate World Koesister Day. Anyone with a recipe can enter, with the wares being judged by Kfm radio presenter Saskia Falken, Co-Owner of Vannie Kaap Marc Jacobs, and Radisson RED’s Kitchen Lead, Chef Naseer Abdullah.

The best recipe gets a prize totalling R12 000, the title of “Kwaiest Koesister 2019”, and will be served every Sunday in the OUIBar + KTCHN at Radisson RED.

MORE CAPE MALAY MAGIC AT RADISSON RED
The inaugural World Koesister Day will also see Radisson RED introducing the Cape Town Corner: a speciality menu of five Cape-Malay-inspired dishes such as bobotie, breyani and masala steak among others.

HOW TO ENTER KOESISTER DAY COMPETITION
Entries are done via social media. Head to Radisson RED’s Facebook and Instagram accounts, and nominate your, or someone else's, koesister.

The winner will be announced live in Saskia Falken’s Sundaze show on KFM.
