Celebrate the Holidays with Cheese!

by Dany Schutte in Cheese

Can you believe December is upon us already? I certainly am struggling with that realization. A lot has happened in my world within the last six months. I came aboard Southern Season in June to open the Richmond location and run the cheese counter there.

Vivian Howard’s Picks: The Urban Dweller

“Having done my time living in a big city and now residing in the country, I have alittle chip on my shoulder. I always want my city friends to know that I’m inthe know. I don’t want them to think that because my idea of a traffic jam is atractor blocking the road that I’ve lost touch with the rest of the world.

Guy Rieme Mont Jura

by Dany Schutte in Cheese, News & Events, Cheese

I love cheese! I wouldn’t be doing what I do, for as long as I have done it, without there being a deep driving love for this creation we call cheese. That being said, it is sometimes difficult to surprise me or delight me in a new way. This is one of Matt Hart’s last big purchases for Southern Season. Before his departure from us, he selected this single product of Guy Rieme Mont Jura in France. And, I have to say, I am delighted!… read more

Vivian Howard’s Picks: Hometown Hero

in Cheese, News & Events, Cheese, Candy, Learn, Learn, News & Events

“Every town, big or small, has this guy. He’s a fixture at every fundraiser, a little league coach, and the guy who invites all the new folks in town over to his house for a barbecue. Unofficial mayors lack pretense, understand quality and love a salty peanut. So say thank you to the “guy who knows everybody’s name” with a few things he’ll enjoy.” – Vivian Howard

Each vintage brings with it its own personality. In the words of a good friend and winemaker… read more
