    Living The Dream At High Hampton

    Unless you’ve seen the beauty at High Hampton for yourself, you’ll want reference photos for this podcast.

This place isn’t just easy on the eyes, this inclusive resort includes Executive Chef Scott Franqueza running the kitchen and creating innovative, fresh, and dynamic menus for resort guests to enjoy. We sat down with Chef Scott (after enjoying plenty of his food ourselves) and discussed;
    What goes into creating a rotating seasonal menu why he turned down a position at The French Laundry, and How is Chef life at a resort as prestigious as High Hampton  Listen in and check our IG for more stunning pictures!

Supporting F&B Employees

Thankful. As this pod continued to grow, I saw an even greater emphasis on the people of F&B in NC. Showcasing small businesses, entrepreneurs, producers, creators, servers, bars and restaurants means not just throwing love at venues but throwing respect and care for the people in the industry- from servers, bussers, barkeeps, BOH, farmers, product entrepreneurs, etc. Let’s keep the conversations going and building greater equity, living wage pay, small business and community support ! Well done y’all!

Informative & engaging

I learn something new every week — and I laugh! Matt’s candor and thoughtful questions offer insights into the best dining of North Carolina.

What a great podcast!

I just finished listening to the December 10, 2020 podcast featuring author and ESPN personality Wright Thompson talk about his book “Pappyland”. What a fascinating conversation! It inspired me to buy and read the book. I definitely will be catching on the rest of your episodes!
