Hospitality industry veterans, Max Trujillo and Matthew Weiss, get behind the scenes of North Carolina's burgeoning food and beverage culture. Hear from local chefs, sommelier's, distillers, farmers, brewers and the whole lot of them in the NC F&B podcast. 

"Our intention is to create a behind-the-scenes conversation between industry professionals. Whether we are speaking with an advanced level sommelier about their wine program or a chef about breaking down an entire pig, we just want the conversation to be real, unedited and honest. The food and beverage world is a unique industry, and North Carolina's food scene is growing everyday.

Take a listen. We hope to entertain, teach and inspire while offering some specific information about the NC food scene."

Chef Jason Smith has been at the forefront of the Raleigh-Durham "finer" dining scene for many years. Chef Jason has never shied away from hard work or mentoring future chefs. Over the last 12 years Jason Smith has successfully opened four restaurants throughout the Triangle. In June of 2017, Chef Jason felt things were becoming stagnant at his flagship restaurant 18 Seaboard. Never one to be complacent, chef Jason hired on a local maverick, chef Jake Wood to give his downtown Raleigh staple restaurant a shot in the arm. 

Jake Wood has used his vast experience to bring a refreshed and dynamic new menu and vibe to 18 Seaboard. We chat about ceviche, hospitality, local politics and cocktails. Warning, listening to this episode will cause you to be hungry and motivated!
