Medellin fruit tour through La Minorista

During my research trip to Medellin to become acclimated with the city, I was offered an opportunity to take a market tour inside of La Minorista.  I’ve never taken a fruit tour before, but since I’m a self-proclaimed professional eater, I figured, why not?  At the very least, I would discover new fruit and eat healthy at the same time. La Minorista has a no frills structure, but the culinary options inside are electric!

Escape the Cape road trip to Cape Point

Today I woke up and the air was different today.  I got up early and had a delicious breakfast literally on the Atlantic Ocean.  During my delicious buffet style breakfast I sat and reflected on the road trip ahead of me today. We are about to escape the cape with a road trip to Cape Point.

Diary of a professional eater: Malay Dinner, Bo-Kaap, Cape Town

My time in the bush came to an end but the adventure continued.  We flew Federal Air back to Johannesburg and connect to the most beautiful city I’ve visited, Cape Town.  The bush was a great experience but I was excited to finally make it to the mother city.  I’m a Pisces and I carry a natural affinity to cities that touch a body of water.

Safari game drives are more fun on foot

Over the course of four game drives I was able to see the big five in one day and the rest of the wildlife in Kruger Park.  During our game drives I spotted zebras, impalas, wildebeests, giraffes, hippos, wart hogs, baboons, spiders, crocodile, tortoise and beautiful flora.

Diary of a Professional Eater: Carnivore and Lucky Bean, Johannesburg

I’m a profession eater and there are two more places I enjoyed dinning in Johannesburg: Carnivore Restaurant and Lucky Bean.  Carnivore is an award winning restaurant (Best Traditional Restaurant, Runner-up Restaurant of the Year) and the dramatic entrance consumes you with anticipation with various African animal statues.  You can have a photo shoot with everything they have on display from a larger then life Nelson Mandela Statue, Zulu Kingdom thrown and statue of King Shaka Zulu.

Temecula Valley wine tasting for my birthday!

Today was my birthday and my girlfriend kidnapped and surprised me with a wine tasting tour at the World of Wine (WoW) barrel tasting in Temecula Valley.  The Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association’s two-day event features 34 participating vineyards sampling their best wines with food pairings.  My girlfriend had foresight to find a company that offered a shuttle to drive us to nine of the vineyards on March 4.
