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."

The restaurant business these days is muddled with confusion. We sat down with owner Sean Degnan, Chef Drew Smith and Freelance Writer Jenn Rice to make some sense of it. Here's what we learned:

  • Ceviche proper cook times
  • What is the kō än community hub
  • What is the most fair way for restaurant workers to be compensated & should back of the house and front of the house workers have the same pay structure
  • What it's like to and why align yourself with a legendary restaurant
  • Where did $2.13 minimum wage come from
