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."

This is the ultimate pork show. Sam Suchoff dives deep into how his Lady Edison Ham has distinguished itself from so many other hogs. We discuss everything involved into producing delicious pork from choosing the right breed like Chester White's and Bershire's, using Animal Wellfare Approved farms, and of course tips for curing the meat.

Sam's success has been recognized by winning two Good Food Awards for his sweet sopressata and spanish style chorizo. On top of everything else Sam does, he finds time to run The Pig, one of the top BBQ joints in the Triangle and be an integral part of The North Carolina Natural Hog Growers Association.
