In Episode #41 of the EATYALL Podcast, we dive back into the world of agriculture in my interview with Samantha McLeod, Executive Director of the Georgia Pecan Growers Association. Our visit unfurls a lot of pecan specific stories about why these Georgia grown nuts are so flavorful and sold at such a premium - “all nuts are not created equal.” We also hear from Samantha about what sampling chefs can look like and why it’s important, even during a pandemic because “taste buds don’t lie.” She also talks about an international visit where she learned that some chefs around the world aren’t versed on pecans and how they initially confused them with other nuts.

Later in the episode we hear about feedback Samantha got from her producers after their EATYALL Chef Care Package was distributed to pastry chefs, and you’ll get to hear which question in the Lightning Round was answered, “throwing a burrito!”
