Just the other day I went to stop in and visit one of my favorite stores, I must admit it had been a year or so since I had visited. What a shock and a major disappointment. I knew the store had been sold by the original owners and that the new ownership was totally commercializing it but I never... More

This mega gourmet store has every gadget known to cooks. The quality of the products is outstanding for both food items and utensils. The buyers for this store hand pick quality products so you can be sure that whatever you pile into your basket will be delicious, unique, and high quality. The prepared foods are delicious, although I have never... More

Amazing place. Every gourmet goody imaginable, including many to eat or drink on site. Cookware, dishes, gift items--really, I could have spent HOURS in this place. If you like to cook or eat or entertain, you owe it to yourself to stop by.

Attended Southern Season's cooking school on a Saturday morning. We visited the Farmer's Market that is held weekly in the University Mall parking lot, then prepared a wonderful lunch which highlighted the fresh NC produce. Yum! Instructor and volunteer staff members were skilled, attentive, fun. A fantastic way to spend a couple of hours with an out of town friend.... More

Southern Season is a high end foodie store in the University Mall. It is huge, even bigger than huge. There are all kinds of regional specialties and food trinkets of every sort. Plan to spend some time there.

My first professional cooking class and will attend more. Great chef with an easy teaching style. And, the store is a pleasant experience as well.

We walked through the market. It has every gizmo and gadget you could ever need. The international food and wine section was amazing. I would drive an hour again just to spend the day there and eat my way through.

The cooking school is great. Most of them you observe a chef preparing various courses of a meal ansd as he completes them, you are served that item along with a matching glass of wine. We've attended one and have booked five more. The store itself has a large variety of packaged food items from around the world. A fabulous... More
