Running for the month of March the campaign is being promoted across Food Network South Africa and Siba Mtongana’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. To enter fans and foodies must send images or short descriptions of dishes they’d like to be made Sibalicious using the hashtag #MakeItSibalicious. The chosen recipes will be remade with a Siba twist and featured in the show.
“I have always hoped to somehow involve fans and audiences in the production of a series, as I have had so many requests for this to happen." says Siba. “I'm super delighted we are taking this current approach. This is a thoroughly contemporary production with a mix of social media, digital trends, wonderful food and creative ideas that allow me to engage with foodies throughout Africa, without leaving my kitchen!"Siba’s Table: Sibalicious!
will air early 2018 on Food Network DStv Channel 175 with Siba presenting 10 tasty half-hour episodes, this time with a different and innovative format that encompasses South Africa and beyond. To take part in #MakeItSibalicious:Facebook
