Multi-Choice Uganda, the home of great pay-TV entertainment in partnership with Rubis Energy Uganda, a major player in the fuel distribution business in Uganda, has called Ugandans with its exciting cooking contest. rewarded Lockdown cooks.
The public was hired to watch the exciting TV reality show House of Chefs and then cook one of the dishes from the Honey TV show every week and share their cooking process and results on their social media pages.
With enthusiasm, Ugandans went to their kitchens to get creative and cook, and submit their posts for their followers to like and vote for.
Commenting on the performance of the competition, Joan Semanda Kizza, PR and Communication Manager at MultiChoice Uganda said: “Since the competition began, we have recognized eight winners from all those who submitted their entries.”
Entrants must submit their entries on Monday each week, while voting takes place during the week and winners are announced Thursday / Friday each week.
Regarding the prizes, Rebecca Nassiwa, Marketing Manager of RUBiS Energy, noted that the participation and profit was higher for men compared to women.
“Interestingly, to date, participation has seen 70% male and 30% female participation, with seven men and one woman registered as winners,” she noted.
“It was interesting for us to note that Ugandan men took up this challenge, perhaps due to the fact that our men had to look after themselves more in the kitchen during the lockdown,” she added.
In the first week, two and three winners went home with different gift baskets from MultiChoice Uganda as well as 12 kg and 6 kg gas bottles from RUBiS Energy.
Duncan Barasha, Praise Muhindi, Nakyobe Roy and Fredy Owakabi expressed their enthusiasm as they prepared chicken dishes, each tailored to their preferences. These gentlemen went ahead to break the stereotype that most men have no or no culinary skills.
Every week, customers have the chance to take part in an exciting and engaging cooking contest that rewards those who see House of Chefs.
While receiving his gift basket, Nakyobe Roy encouraged Ugandans, who learned a thing or two during the lockdown, to brave the competition as there are plenty of exciting freebies to be won.
âCOVID-19 has taught us to try and expand new skills and I would like to call on everyone who has learned to cook to enter this exciting competition and have a chance to win.
I took my chance and thanks to DStv Uganda and RUBiS I have a 12 kg K-gas bottle, an apron and other important things for today’s modern kitchen, âhe said.
