A Busy Spring in the Cheese World

by Dany Schutte in Cheese

Finally! Spring is starting to peek through! At least here in Virginia, we have had a late winter. Even though I live in a townhouse and just have a small patio space in which to garden, I’m aching to put my hands into some soil and pot up my plants. But it makes me happy to see some tomatoes growing, maybe a few peppers, some mint, basil and sage for herbs and I keep trying my hand at lemon cucumbers, but just not having a lot… read more

In practice, this usually means that Easter Sunday is spent with family, while Pasquetta is spent with friends,… read more

Spring is here – as are new wines!

by Elizabeth Cooper in Cheese, Specialty Grocery, Wine & Beer

The Spring Solstice has passed and we are in the time of year that sees the cherry trees blossom and gardens readied for planting. In the vineyard, this is the time of year we look for budbreak – a vulnerable time in the life cycle of the grapevine as spring frosts can happen and wreak havoc. It is also the time of year we look for the release of rosé wine, and in the retail and restaurant business it’s the time we start seeing… read more

Easter candy? No problem!

by Doreen Vigilante in Cheese, Specialty Grocery, Wine & Beer, Learn, News & Events, News & Events, News & Events, Candy, Candy

I have always been a “Life is short, eat dessert first” kind of gal. For as long as I can remember, I would jump right to the dessert menu when eating out. At family gatherings, I would salivate over the plentiful and elaborate dessert offerings. Sure, I LOVE food, but it’s the sweet things in life I crave.
            I guess my “foodie” start came early in life. As a kid growing up in New Jersey, we… read more
