A little about me... wine not

Welcome to my food and wine blog in Cape Town - Taste With Tara !

Hey there. I’m Tara-Louise, originally from the United Kingdom, but my parents packed us up to live in Cape Town, South Africa when I was just 7 years old. South Africa (and in particular Cape Town) has been my home for most of my life... and what a beautiful city I am privileged to have grown up in.

I am super passionate about food and wine, and yes! I am one of those who elicit raised eyebrows from those at our table at a restaurant... as they want to start eating... but I need to take a photo of the food first :)

My favourite thing to do is visit different places, restaurants and in particular wine farms where I can experience unique wines and amazing cuisine. Wine Pairings also rate highly in what I enjoy doing, as well as picnics on a warm summer day, and of course a great food and wine pairing.

I started this journey of food and wine a while back, and have decided to create Taste with Tara in order to share my experiences with like-minded people. I work for a large corporate company and am asked every Friday “so which exciting wine farm will you be visiting this weekend?”, “Can’t wait to see your pics on Facebook”, and on a Monday morning I’m asked “where do you find all these amazing places you go to?” – it’s gone as far as colleagues and friends regularly asking me for recommendations of places to take both local and overseas visitors to, as I enjoy hidden gems just as much as well-known places.

From fine dining, to cheese and charcuterie platters, to a great breakfast on-the-go, I will be reviewing various eateries and wine farms in my food and wine blog in Cape Town and beyond, and I look forward to having you here with me on this exciting journey.
The Western Cape is filled with an array of beauty. A winery with a beautiful view to a family run kitchen. Authenticity and beautiful nature, we have it all here.  Follow tastewithtara to join me on my adventures

I  really enjoy following tastewithtara on Instagram and enjoy the diversity of  experiences that Tara shares. Her pics are so good that it makes me want to eat everything I see :)

The thing I like most about tastewithtara is that she goes beyond just Cape Town, into the Winelands and even as far as the Garden Route, and  she showcases different experiences, not just fine dining and wine, but also other tastings and experiences
