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."

Giorgios Bakatsias is a James Beard Awarded restaurateur and a passionate man. Here's what we learned from him;

  • How one can include large amounts of information and knowledge into one question answered yet, skillfully answer the question. Much like Giorgios' answers his food is layered with flavor and conclusions.
  • How to make wine, "become the grape."
  • Every restaurant has a soul and knows what it's supposed to be.
  • Giorgios' penchant for hiring/discovering great chefs.
  • Why there aren't any Greek diners in North Carolina?
  • How being a midfielder in "futbol" helped him to see the world in 360 degrees.
