With new locally curated online marketplace Eatsplorer as your culinary guide, you can have your cake and eat it too.

Eat, drink and be merry. This is the philosophy shared by many a gourmand here at VISI HQ. Which is why we started to drool when we heard about newly launched guide Eatsplorer – an online platform dedicated to curating some of the best food and drinks experiences South Africa has to offer. Think social table d’hôte-style feasts at wine farms, master classes in martini-making and meat-curing, farm-to-table dining, cooking classes with renowned chefs and food experts, and botanical gin workshops. Because, true to cliché, variety is the spice of life.

“I have always measured my wealth in the amount of time I have for meaningful experiences such as cooking with friends and family, or travelling,” says Liezel Norval-Kruger, who co-founded Eatsplorer with fellow entrepreneur Kara Furter. “Having grown up in a household where life revolved around the kitchen table, I naturally have a passion for finding unique food experiences, both locally and abroad.”

These words are testament to the team’s commitment to promoting culinary experiences that are authentic, immersive and memorable. What’s more, the online magazine features the latest food, drink and travel news to keep you in the know. In an age where it has become customary to snap and share our food on Instagram, many foodies want to know where their food comes from and how it’s produced. Platforms such as Eatsplorer make it easier to find the answers.
