Taste your Way Across South Africa with Nederburg

CAPE TOWN, South Africa

There are myriad reasons why South Africa is one of the most sought-after travel destinations in the world, yet top of the list are always variations on these three themes: incredible food and wine, the warmth of the people, and the sheer beauty of its diverse landscapes.

A breakout five-part series called I’ll Bring the Wine [ ] blends all of these aspects together: traversing the length and breadth of the country while tasting its best cuisine and meeting some of its finest people along the way too.

Created by award-winning wine brand, Nederburg [ ], and hosted by acclaimed chef and food writer, Karen Dudley [ ] (whose Cape Town restaurant has served the likes of former First Lady Michelle Obama), each episode profiles a prominent South African chef, a quintessential South African dish made with real flair, and the ideal wine to pair it with.

Eye-watering cinematography meets mouth-watering gastronomy and together with Karen’s [ ] poignant insights, creates a travel, food and wine show like no other.

Think a pinch of Chef’s Table, with a dash of Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown, and a large helping of Mzansi magic thrown in for good measure.

To whet your appetite…

From the lush, rural foothills of Kwa-Zulu Natal [ ] to the bustling townships of Cape Town [ ], much-loved chef Mmabatho Molefe [ ] succeeds in giving classic Nguni cuisine a dramatic contemporary makeover (think chicken feet terrine with onion caviar).

Next, multi-award-winning chef and Midlands maven, Jackie Cameron [ ], brings beef tongue [ ] to life like never before.

In Episode 3 [ ], take a trip down to Durban’s famed Spice Market, in search of a one-of-a-kind chef and his take on a dish to celebrate Diwali.

In the penultimate episode [ ], ice-cream meets Africa’s staple grains and creates something truly revolutionary in the process.

And in the final episode [ ], two impossibly different places meet on one plate: a rugged stretch of coastline, home to the world’s only truly wild oysters, and the parched desert plains of the Karoo, home to a variety of buck that still roam free, as they have for millennia. The resultant dish: a surf and turf like you’ve never seen or tasted before.
