009: South African Food ft. Carla Conradie


This week, my lovely friend Carla joins me to discuss South African Food!

We talk about the joy she finds in rooibos tea, the cultural institution that is braai (including boerewors and braaibroodjie), the biltong bin at JFK, droewors, melktert, koeksisters, bobotie, and the supremely first-gen/immigrant feeling of being the weird Canadian cousin when you go back to where your family’s from.

And of course it couldn’t be an episode with Carla without a lengthy section on Nutella, so we covered that right at the top.

As promised, here’s a link to South African celebrity chef Zola Nene, and food writer Hope Malau!
