Stories make the food we love taste even better. Food blogger and self-taught cook, Perzen Patel sits down weekly with the people in our food trucks, at our farmers’ markets, in home-based kitchens and beyond to talk shop and learn the stories behind the food they serve. If you love eating local, going to food festivals, secretly call yourself a ‘street foodie’ or even dream of one day starting a food truck that serves Nana’s mince pies, this is the podcast for you. Kiwi Foodcast is brought to you by Podcasts New Zealand.
