South African scoops Bake Off crown with her koeksisters...in CHILE!
A South African living in Chile for the past seven years has won the country's version of Bake Off.
Allison "Alli" Ramsay says she was always told to enter cooking competitions but never really had the courage to do it
She has been working for the South African Embassy in Chile for the past five years and resigned last week to further her cooking career.
She shared her journey with CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies.

Well, I got called back in every phase of the casting, which just astounded me completely, It was a wonderful surprise, one that I couldn't give up.— Allison "Alli" Ramsay
It's a lot of pressure with cameras and lights in your face the whole time...— Allison "Alli" Ramsay
One of the popular bakes that I did was koeksisters. That was the key South African dish that I made and I won that week.— Allison "Alli" Ramsay
