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."

Fascinating is not often a word you associate with a butcher, but that's Meredith Leigh. Meredith is not only fascinating, she’s a bad ass butcher, a writer and most importantly a thoughtful human being. This is the story of how a vegetarian ends up seeing the other side of meat, or in other words ethical meat. In this episode we learned how you can DIY butchering at home with sub primal meats such as the “Chuck Eye Roll,” “The Craft and Poetry of Curing Meat at Home,” why “I’m Right and You’re an Idiot,” and finally why Max has an adolescent brain. Rarely in life do we meet people who are so considerate of not only the environment and every thing in it but, also aware of adverse perspectives. Whether you are a carnivore or a vegetarian this is a must listen. Thank you Meredith for your awareness and for your literary works.
