We’re Thomas and Sheena, a couple of Kiwis travelling the world in search of the BEST FOOD. We travel to eat and believe that food is one of the best ways to learn about different cultures and to connect with people.
We are videographers, writers and photographers who travel on a full time basis. We explore different cultures using food as our lens and share our experiences on our YouTube channel Chasing a Plate and via our fortnightly column in the New Zealand Herald’s Be Well magazine.
Why are we qualified to create content about food & travel?
We live to eat and travel. Chasing a Plate started as a Melbourne based food blog in 2013 borne from our love of finding the best food in a city renowned for its eateries. Over the past 10 years we have travelled to over 30+ countries. We’re all about veering from the well-trodden tourist path to hunt down local food with great stories and histories. We eat our way through cities to find the best renditions of a dish.
In October 2016 we packed up our apartment, hopped on a plane and started travelling full-time. We created Chasing a Plate, the YouTube channel so we could bring our audience along on our eating adventures in a more engaging way. Through videography, writing and photography we want to showcase destinations through their food cultures and inspire our audience to experience it for themselves.
