This Saturday (10 November, 2012), at 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm, I will be joining Natascha Moy and two other guests on her very successful gourmet food and wine show Food in Focus on FM 89.7. This show has been running successfully for four and a half years with a star's line-up of great chefs, restaurant and specialty food owners, wine makers, winery owners and others who are passionate about good food and wine.
I am privileged that Natascha has asked me to join her party this weekend and excited to participate. Without giving too much away, I will be talking about Party Wines and bringing along three good bottles which are excellent examples of what good party wine is all about. This is live radio so it will be exciting to find out what Natascha is going to ask me and the other guests. I just hope that I can contribute and continue to help her grow her following. My only goal is to help you be able 'to impress' the next time you bring a bottle of wine to a party or other function.
I met Natascha through social media as we share a common interest around good food and wine. We started following each other on Twitter, became friends and started to communicate and share ideas on Facebook, and now will finally have the opportunity to meet and share some good wine and good ideas and discussion together. I love witnessing (and even better, be part of!) examples where social media really works!
Natascha is a real 'pro' in the radio and journalism game as evidenced by her long-running success with Food in Focus. She has a background in magazine journalism with a Bachelor of Journalism degree and has participated in traditional and online media for years. She has published her own food newspaper and now continues to share her insights through her radio talk show Food in Focus on FM 89.7.
Natascha and I also share a passion around gender diversity. This year, she founded a networking movement called Girl Power which has been founded on the principle that women in business have brilliant brains but deserve something more. She runs bi-monthly networking events attended by approximately 60 women talking about everything from sales to sex, and fashion to nutrition.
Once the show is completed, I will write a blog to summarize what we discussed on Party Wines to share with you, but if you can join Natascha, me and her two other guests for Food in Focus this Saturday at 4 pm, we would welcome it. Hope you are there with us!
