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."

In today's episode, we took the show on the road down to Charlotte, NC to get a private drinking session with the Ritz-Carlton's 2015 Global Bartender of the Year, Bob Peters! Bob invited us to the Punch Room, a craft cocktail lounge on the 15th floor of Charlotte's Ritz-Carlton. Between the tour of the rooftop-garden, the magical punch bowl of drinks, the comfortable hospitality and the education on cocktails, we experienced pure bar nirvana.  We hear tale of Bob's growth from dive bars to picking herbs over Charlotte's skyline for tonight's drink menu. Bob tastes us on the honey cultivated from the hotel's rooftop beehive.  Bob gives us his best picks for places to dine and drink in CLT while serving us a few rounds of delicious cocktails.  Give a listen and don't forget to download the CurEat App for free in iTunes!
