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."

How to grow mushrooms. Fox Farm & Forage

If you are ever concerned about living in a post apocalyptic world or you just want to know lots about much, listen to Amy Fox of Fox Farm & Forage. Mrs. Fox has figured out how to turn a degree in nursing into becoming a mushroom farmer. Not only is Amy a mushroom farmer, she is the darling mushroom grower/supplier to many of the elite chefs in the Raleigh-Durham area. Oh on top of everything else she does, Amy is a laugh a minute as an example she is a self-proclaimed, “Tricky Bitch.” (Not our words)

Amy Fox gives us insight into how to grow your own mushrooms, some of the science behind different mushroom species and she distills down why some mushrooms taste better than others. Mrs. Fox doesn’t have time to forage much anymore as her mushroom growing, being a wife and being peer pressured by her kids to skate board take up most of her time however, she gives us plenty of sound advice into which mushrooms we should not be eating. Get in on the fun…guys!
