Curd Quips: Celebrating American Cheese Month

Interrupting this local election season with unity before rhetoric is; American Cheese Month. Yes, there is something the vast majority of us can agree on. October, a thirty-one day celebration of not just delicious and diverse cheeses, but the farmers, cheesemakers, retailers, cheesemongers, and chefs who bring them to your table. Vote against that? I think not – that would be un-American.

Real Estate: Selling your home? How to get buyers in the front door

Looking to sell your home? Then improve its curb appeal. That's the advice of realtors who say that many home buyers won't even get out of their cars unless they like the way the house looks from the street.

Home & Garden: Green & Clean initiative encourages responsible lawn care

For many Virginians, the arrival of fall means it’s time to break out the fertilizer spreader. While fescue and bluegrass lawns should be fed in the fall, local water quality suffers when fertilizers and other amendments aren’t applied in the correct amounts.

Curd Quips: Confessions of a cheese liberal and bark eater

Courtesy photo. This creamy cheese has a festive frock. Edible? Yes, this Fleur Verte wouldn’t be the same if you separated the two tastes. Outside coating is made with herbs like tarragon.
It’s been said that “We eat first with our eyes.” If true, cheese works well on any plate. Consider not only the variety of shapes and colors in cheese, but - the rinds. Rinds, being the exterior of the cheese, pate being the center, that consist of a myriad of types. Be they rinds covered with herbs, ash, colorfully waxed, orange, brown or bright white, there is the one question that daunts just about everybody, “can I eat the rind?”

Curtain Calls: “Texts and Beheadings” - Elizabeth 101

Photo by Teresa Wood. Four Elizabeths (l -r) Monique Barbee, Cristina Spina, Ayeje Feamster, and Juliana Francis-Kelly) star in Compagnia de’ Colombari’s “Texts and Beheadings/ElizabethR” at the Folger Theatre through Oct. 4.
Nothing says “college drama class exercise” like actors lined up delivering alternating words in a single speech. If that were my only exception to Karin Coonrod’s world premiere contribution to the Women’s Voices Theatre Festival as it appears at Folger, I would happily recommend it for a closer look. Unfortunately, hackneyed devices and overly clever riffs are the vehicle for – I’m guessing here – a study of the life and character of Elizabeth I.
