What we at MCZ know so far about the #MaggiOsetigo competition.

The eastern edition of the Maggi cook-off targeted at young and aspiring cooks from the eastern part of Nigeria, O Setigo.

This is a competition set in the commercial capital of the country, Lagos Nigeria. It started out, when the 12 selected contestants who made it to the live show participated in a cook-off in the city they were selected from. The show premiered on the 21st of June, with three judges, (Noble Igwe, Alex Asogwa, and Chef Lynda Nnamani) and 12 amazing contestants who have cooked their way through to gaining a place in the next phase of the O setigo competition and an opportunity to move closer to winning the Grand Prize of 1 million naira.

However, this edition of O setigo with the episodes themed Ofe Mmicha Aka and Ngwo Ngwo, saw contestants cook and treat the judges to heartwarming soups from the eastern part of Nigeria. Contestants from Awka, Asaba, Enugu, Port Harcourt, Aba and Owerri have been given the fair chance of showcasing their cooking prowess in the O setigo kitchen where their dishes, presentation and cooking skills have given them a reason and even an edge above some of their contestants.

As at the time this report is been put out four contestants (Confidence, Chidinma, Maryrose and Jane)have been evicted from the competition.

Making just eight still eligible to compete for the Grand Prize. There is a caviar though, the contestants who emerged best in the first round of the competition are being given a chance to start ahead of the other contestants in the second round of the competition.

Even as we at My Cookery Zone and you food enthusiasts keep tabs on the situation of things in the Maggi O setigo kitchen, We are rooting for only the best to emerge winner of the Maggi cook-off competition targeted at young and aspiring cooks from the eastern part of Nigeria.
