Siblings Tarlan (25) and Tersia Baker (29) hailing from Secunda, are the runners up in the Ultimate Braai Masters competition on ETV.
The Baker-braai team call themselves team Muttonheads.
They have won several challenges in the competition that started in February and finished among the Top 3.
Both like cooking and decided to enter the competition.
They went for an audition last year and were chosen to take part in season 5 of the competition.
Most of the other competitors are professional chefs, but Tarlan and his sister Tersia are of the few who are not chefs by profession.
Filming was done in November.
They travelled all over South Africa and spent six weeks away from home.
Both Tarlan and Tersia grew up in Secunda and used to work at Sasol, but in the mean time they both relocated to Johannesburg.
Tarlan now works as a project manager and Tersia as an inspector.
The most rewarding part of the Braai Master journey for them was the Pay it Forward part where they visited several less privileged schools and communities where they cooked for the children and did other projects in these communities.
Everything from fish to baking a cake must be done on fire as part of the Braai Master competition.
One of their challenges were to make a high tea on an open fire and the team made a cheesecake for the occasion.
Tersia is now busy writing her first book, a family cook book.
She will publish everyone in the family’s favourite recipe in this cook book.
According to Tarnia Baker, Tersia’s mom, they come from a family where everybody likes cooking.
“My mom is an amazing cook,” said Tarnia.
Tersia also wants to start a business with a food truck.
