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."

What can you do to eliminate food waste and hunger? Evan Lutz created Hungry Harvest. Literally, billions of pounds of food goes wasted annually while 50 million people are hungry in America. By the way, North Carolina wastes 1.2 million tons per year. Thankfully Hungry Harvest has set up shop in North Carolina. Listen in to our conversation about how CEO Evan Lutz and his company is revolutionizing the use of produce in this country.

In this episode you will also get some tips on how to limit food waste in your own home. How and where to buy produce and what happens to all the food not purchased by grocery stores. For the most fun part of the conversation pay attention to when Evan gives us the skinny about being on shark tank!
