A South African & A Foreign Affair

Episode Notes

A note from Stephanie...

Sometimes loving a wine isn't just about the wine itself - sometimes it's about the people behind it. I fell in love with South African wines when I visited there in last year and it was partially due to the people there who loved their wine, loved to share it - and their stories that captivated me.


...and speaking of stories, A Foreign Affair Winery has a beautiful one - and it is told in every bottle produced, and every label on the bottle and in every conversation you have with one of their staff or "Conspirators" family.

For this episode's recipe...we thought it would be fitting for something to warm your insides and give you a taste of Africa. It is one of my favourite go-to stews for the colder months of the year and I suggest trying to pair it with a good Pinotage from South Africa.
