Get ready for a soup-to-nuts conversation on the meat business on a brand new episode of What Doesn’t Kill You, with Katy Keiffer. She’s joined by George Faison, partner and COO at DeBragga and Spitler, a top quality meat distributor based in NYC. George was a founder of D’Artagnan where he worked as a partner for 20 years before moving to DeBragga and Spitler. He has been honored for achievement by his peers with both the Food Arts magazine Silver Spoon Award, and the Who’s Who of Food & Beverage in America from The James Beard Foundation. In 2005, he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Bon Appétit magazine. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.
