The Travel Bite Podcast is a weekly audio program for foodies who love to travel. During each show, I share stories from my adventures around the world — From chatting with top chefs and winemakers, to talking with other travelers about unique eats and experiences, we’ll tempt your tastebuds and take your imagination on a culinary journey across the globe.


This is our very first episode recorded live on location in Stellenbosch, South Africa, where I chat with a local foodie and blogger, Natalie from Tailsofamermaid.com about South Afrian BBQ styles, road trip food, and wine. I also learn more about the history of winemaking in South Africa while chatting with a winemaker at Jordan Wines.


In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • A fun lesson in how to pronounce delicious dried meats and barbecue such as Braai Broodjies and Boerewors.
  • Wine trends in South Africa including some surprising Chardonnay, Shiraz, and even Riesling (it’s the real McCoy!)
  • The history of winemaking in South Africa and the story of Inspector Péringuey.



A new podcast is published every Thursday of each week, with a show notes post such as this one published the following Monday morning.
