SA Food & Wine Blogs

I got the idea of compiling a list of South African Food & Wine blogs after reading a post by RunningWolfsRant and his list of South African Bloggers on Twitter. I thought, why not do the same but concentrate on food & wine. Plus, this will make #ff so much easier. These blogs don’t appear in any particular order – it’s just a random list of food blogs.

If I forgot to add someone, please don’t take it personally. I still love you! Comment below or drop me a mail so I can add you.

You can also check out the South African Food Bloggers’ Showcase on Facebook! The page allows local food bloggers to show off their recipes. You will find the best of South African food bloggers there!

  1. Hi there. I’m a Johannesburg based food blogger and would love to connect with
    other SA food enthusiasts. Would appreciate if you’d pop over to see my page and add me to the list.
    Many thanks

  2. I appreciate your style and approach to your viewpoint. Some have referenced this as a rant, and I would have to disagree. I view rants as emotionally lead, and often disregarding others feelings to push their own. In many instances, rationality and facts go out the window.
