Make Eating Good Cheese a Resolution in 2015!

by Dany Schutte in News & Events, Wine & Beer, Learn, Recipes, Coffee & Tea, Cheese

Happy New Year! Hope the holidays treated everyone well. The New Year brings an opportunity for new beginnings, and thus I jump into my new adventure as the buyer in the cheese category here at Southern Season with full force. They say a good cheese counter is a cooperative effort of the cheesemonger’s palette and the customer’s desires. It is with this in mind I begin the New Year, travelling through the other locations,… read more

National Bloody Mary Day

by Charlotte Myer in News & Events, Wine & Beer, Learn, Recipes, Coffee & Tea, Cheese, Learn, Wine & Beer


“I’ve always loved New Year’s Day. More than the festivities of the night before, with their requisite planning, expectations, and the very real risk of having to wear high heels, New Year’s Day always feels like a fresh start: a day of optimism, and looking forward, and of making resolutions. But it’s also a day to sleep in and have a big brunch, which to me has always felt like… read more

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.
I also understand that my city friends don’t want knick knacks to clutter their typically small living… read more

Guy Rieme Mont Jura

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
