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."

Our friend Bobby McFarland once worked for Chef Floyd Cardoz in New York. Floyd was Bobby's mentor and taught him how to be a great cook. On our journey to up north for "New York Week", Bobby reached out to Floyd to ask if we could interview him for our podcast. Not only did he agree, but he invited us to his home. His wife made us tea, we pet his dog, he gave us the best tasting asparagus from his garden. It was unreal.


Floyd Cardoz passed away today, reportedly from the COVID virus. Our hearts are broken and there is a sense of helplessness occurring. Our instinct is to remember Floyd today, by re-releasing our interview with him from August 2nd, 2018.

Rest in Peace Chef...
