One thing is for sure, if the biltong craving hits you, it hits you hard. That was just one of the reasons we visited Dutchy’s Gourmet Sausages in Plantation, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida this last week.
We spent a week in Miami, and yes, that video will be shared soon. On our way back however, we just had to stop by and say hi to two amazingly inspirational South Africans. We popped into their shop when we just got to Florida. We had to pick up our pets from Miami international, and after some research found that there was a South African store near the airport.
We stocked up on everything – Boerewors, Biltong, Drywors, Portuguese Chicken spices, and got some of our home flavoured tipple of choice too. They have since moved into a bigger and better location, and we were honoured to get a grand tour when we popped in. I just have to add, they had no idea we were coming camera in hand. A great big thank you to Nash (Natasha), who welcomed us with open arms, and made us feel right at home.
Here is the video we shot, and some info on how they got started. When I asked Nash what the one piece of advice is that she would give South African who want to start a business in the USA, she said: “There is so much opportunity in America. Just go for it.”
If that doesn’t light up the fire in your belly, well, then stick with the chilli bites.
Thank you again for your hospitality Dutchy’s!
