Reserve This! – It’s about more than food, it’s about an appetite for life.

In the tradition of the art of choosing, preparing and savouring good food (and everything that goes with that), Joanne Bender and her co-host Tim Ardinger explore food, wine, dining, cuisine and any other gastronomic encounter that takes their fancy!

Joanne was raised in the restaurant business and gets a spring in her step and a twinkle in her eye every time she attends a wine tasting or visits a new restaurant. Tim studied at the Culinary Institute of America and just plain enjoys food and everything about it.

They both love sharing their epicurean adventures – hence the Reserve This! podcast. 

Each episode is a reflective and entertaining report back on a restaurant visit, wine tasting or other interesting gastronomic experience, and interviews with chefs, restaurant owners and wine makers take things further by offering a fascinating glimpse into what happens behind the scenes.
