Artisan Spotlight: Charleston & Church

Artisan Spotlight: Charleston & Church

Artisan Spotlight: Charleston & Church

At first bite, Charleston & Church Cheese Rounds will make you say, “Sweet cheeses, that’s good!” This delightfully addictive snack is crafted by Warren and Jenn Simmons, the wonderful folks behind Charleston & Church. 

We recently had the chance to catch up with Jenn to chat about the inspiration behind the business, their 2020 Flavor of Georgia win, and all things Cheese Rounds!

Like every great product, these Cheese Rounds have a story and a recipe passed down generations. The inspiration behind their business and this delicious recipe comes from Warren’s grandmother, Irene Simmons.

“The inspiration behind our Cheese Rounds has always been Warren’s grandmother Irene Simmons, or ‘DeDe’ as she was known. She was born in 1907 and lived to be 94, but sadly I didn’t meet Warren until several years after she passed so I never got to meet her. But she taught Warren to cook, they spent long hours in the kitchen when he was a kid, and his fondest memories with her are cooking together. She was known throughout Charleston for being a consummate hostess and everyone loved her Cheese Rounds which she would serve as hors d'oeuvres at her soirees. 

Our base recipe, which Warren started tweaking around 2016, was her recipe for Cheese Rounds. He kicked it up a bit with some heat and added the pecan as a nod to Georgia, but the origin of our recipe is Warren’s grandmother who made it for years in her kitchen on Church Street in the Battery of Charleston, SC. Both our company name and our product are an homage to DeDe, our inspiration.”


Made with love and rooted in tradition, it’s no surprise that Cheese Rounds are delightfully addictive. You’ll be hooked at first bite! (We may or may not have eaten the entire bag in one sitting.) If you’re wondering how these bites of deliciousness are created, they’re crafted by hand at PREP Commercial Kitchens in Atlanta with the highest-quality ingredients. 

“Cheese Rounds are lovingly made by hand at PREP Commercial Kitchens by Warren and one of our godsons who assists him. We don’t have any fancy equipment, only a commercial mixer and convection ovens. The goal is, however, to be picked up by a production facility or co-packer who can take over production, and we would like that to happen sooner than later so we can really scale-up our volume.

Regarding ingredients, we are really proud that unlike products similar to ours in the marketplace today, we don’t use any ingredients that didn’t exist when Warren’s grandmother created our recipe in the 1930s.”


Jenn and Warren Simmons of Charleston & Church with their Cheese Rounds product

With a product that’s the perfect mix of Southern heat and savory cheese, they entered the 2020 Flavor of Georgia Food Product Contest and not only won the Snack category but also were named the Grand Prize Winner. How did it feel to beat out 117 other products from makers around the state and win the grand prize?

“Surreal would be the word. 

The contest was virtual in 2020, and winners were announced via a video at a pre-determined time. We went on YouTube to watch, and categories were announced alphabetically. Since we were in the Snack Food category, that one was announced last. When we won the category, we looked at each other like, “No way!” I was literally saying, “I can’t believe it!” when Warren said to me, “Wait, we have to watch the Grand Prize winner,” so I calmed down and a few seconds later, Dr. Sharon Kane announced us as the Grand Prize winner. And I totally lost it! We both did. We were in our dining room just screaming and jumping up and down, incredulous. 

I ran to my phone but couldn’t even decide who to call first and was just kind of frozen. We finally called our moms once we could get it together to move and speak. But, winning felt surreal. We have an awesome snack food, but to beat out 117 other delicious, creative food products across Georgia was just not something we expected.”

It’s no surprise that these award-winning Cheese Rounds have gained quite a following of snack lovers, but they have a famous fan as well. A long-time fan of Hall & Oates, Jenn and Warren had the chance to serve their cheese rounds at John Oates’s autobiography release. And well, the snack made his dreams come true. 

“A little backstory to how John Oates came to taste our Cheese Rounds . . . I have been obsessed with Hall & Oates since the 80s, when I was very, very young. So, when Master Chef Tom Catherall asked us to provide Cheese Rounds for a book signing he was hosting for John Oates’s autobiography release, you can guess that I fan-girled and acted very awkward when I met poor John who was so gracious. 

Warren was, of course, totally calm, serving John Oates Cheese Rounds off a tray. John actually patted him on the back and said, “Man, I love your Cheese Rounds!” whereas I think he probably couldn’t wait to end the conversation with me. Anyway, we consider John Oates a fan!”

As a longtime fan, we just had to ask: what Hall & Oates song describes Cheese Rounds?

“I think the Hall & Oates song that best describes our Cheese Rounds is one that John Oates actually sings lead on, and that is ‘Possession Obsession’ off of the Big Bam Boom album. There is a line that goes:

‘Just a taste of possession obsession

Brings a case of possession obsession’

This is true of our Cheese Rounds. Retailers will sample them, and then say, ‘We need to order several cases of these!’ One taste causes addiction! 

We’ve been told that wives literally hide our bags from their husbands and vice-versa. People hide them from their co-workers. They are that good, and once folks have a taste, they are obsessed . . . and get possessive of our Cheese Rounds!”

One thing’s for sure: we could never lose that loving feeling for these Cheese Rounds. (But definitely keep your “Private Eyes” on this snack or “She’s Gone” and you can’t go for that.) 

We’re excited to add this delicious snack to our inventory of Georgia-made products and even more thrilled to welcome Charleston & Church to our family of artisans. If you want to try this delicious snack for yourself, order your own bag of Charleston & Church Cheese Rounds or our Flavors of Summer gift box to get a taste of this cheesy snack and other summer treats.

A powerful mother-daughter duo, Laura and Susan own Susansnaps – the only gourmet gingersnap cookie company.

Ginger is a natural stomach soother and cookies always have a way to bring smiles. Through Laura’s small baking company, she created the ultimate gingersnap recipe. As the cookies were becoming popular, Laura coined them “Susansnaps” in memory of her sister, Sue (who died from Hodgkin’s) and in honor of her daughter (who beat Hodgkin’s at 22). Today, Susan & Laura work side-by-side running Susansnaps and their delicious gingersnaps warrant a smile at first bite.

Meet the Artisans

Byrd Cookie Company

In 1924, Ben Tillman Byrd, Sr. began baking small batches of cookies from his bakery in Savannah, Georgia, packing them in wooden crates, and personally delivering them to neighborhood markets in his Model T Ford. The cookies were soon christened “Byrd’s Famous Cookies” and steadily gained popularity not only locally, but also among visitors who discovered the delicious confections while visiting Savannah. Today, Byrd Cookie Company is one of the largest and fastest-growing independent cookie, snack and gift companies in the United States. You can find their Lemon Cooler and Georgia Peach Cookies in our Coastal Georgia gift box.


Salacia Salts

This small business is filled with bath and beauty products made from all-natural organic ingredients locally-sourced and inspired by scents of the South. Plus, each product is packed by hand in sustainable packaging to help preserve the beauty of the earth. Like all other great prophecies, the idea for Salacia Salts came from a dream.

You can find Salacia Salts Lemon Lavender Body Butter in our Coastal Georgia gift box.


Dr. Pete's 

The small southern town of Ailey, Georgia is home to Dr. Pete's Foods. Dr. Pete's is known for their delicious marinades, sauces, dressings, baking mixes, and the famous Praline Mustard Glaze. Dr. T. A. Peterson, known as Dr. Pete to his patients, was reared in this sleepy south Georgia town. After becoming a doctor, he was often seen with his worn, black leather doctor's bag in hand entering homes around Savannah. As much as Dr. Pete loved his practice of medicine, he equally loved the art of cooking, and he spent many joyous hours creating and preparing wonderful dishes and sauces for his family and friends. In 1985, his daughter and son-in-law, Jan and Joel Coffee, began bottling some of his recipes, and selling them to the public under the "Dr. Pete's" label. Many of Dr. Pete's products have won awards, including the Flavor of Georgia award for their Praline Mustard Glaze and Best Baked Gold Award for their Key Lime Squares and Rustic French Boule Mixes. You can find their award winning Key Lime Square baking mix in our Coastal Georgia gift box


MaMa E's Home Bakery

Marie Motes's dream for many years was to open a home bakery. When she retired in October 2012, she decided to make her dream come true. With much encouragement from coworkers, friends, and family, she made it happen. Marie has a small bakery in Metter, Georgia but you can occasionally find her at local arts and crafts festivals. As for the name "MaMa E's," in Marie's words: "This is what my grandchildren call me. As most of you know, the first grandchild names you. My grandson, Taylor, was suppose to call me MaMa Marie but he cut it short. Taylor called me 'MaMa E', and it stuck." Ideal for any occasion, MaMa E's cheese straws, featured in our Coastal Georgia gift box, are light and crispy with just the right amount of cayenne pepper. 


We had the best time exploring (virtually) exploring Coastal Georgia and getting a little vitamin sea in Savannah. To bring a little bit of the coast to your door step, shop the Coastal Georgia gift box here.

Honey On The Hill

Dale Fisher is the founder, owner and head beekeeper at Honey On The Hill. After his last tour in Afghanistan, Dale found himself injured both mentally and physically and searching for something to keep him out of a dark place. After trying other farming ventures, he found that harvesting honey was his passion. In fact, he credits honeybees with saving his life by giving him focus, balance, and a reason to face a new day with every sunrise. With that, Dale started Honey On The Hill with the goal of providing the best raw, sustainably-sourced honey available on the market. Today, Honey On The Hill has grown to not only provide raw honey varieties but also gourmet candy, beauty products, and SuperFood Heroes. You can find Honey On The Hill Wildflower Honey and Bee Peachy Sugar Scrub in our North Georgia gift box. 


Nora Mill Granary

Nora Mill Granary has been a part of North Georgia history for over 100 years. The mill was built in 1876 complete with 1,500 pound French Burr Mill Stones and a 100 ft. wooden raceway that feeds water to a water turbine - not a vertical water wheel. In 1902 Dr. Lamartine G. Hardman bought the mill and named it "Nora Mill" in memory of his sister Nora. After a succession of millers throughout the years, in the early 1980s, Retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Ron Fain worked with the Hardman family and leased Nora Mill for him and his parents to bring back to life and operate. Ron became the Miller of Nora Mill. Over the years, Ron worked with his parents until their passing, and then brought his youngest daughter Joann in under his wing to learn the art of milling and work the Nora Mill business. Nora Mill is now in the fourth generation of the Fain family operation as Joe Vandegriff and his wife Addi, along with Joann Fain Tarpley, with husband Rich, continue to manage and operate Nora Mill Granary. There have been many changes over the years, but the main idea is still the same: to grind fresh grains with no additives or preservatives with old-fashioned quality. Nora Mill has recently gone through a major refurbishing to help continue the legacy of the Mill for many years to come. You can find their Wild Blueberry Muffin and Pancake mix in our North Georgia gift box.


Jumpin Goat Coffee Roasters

Jumpin Goat Coffee Roasters in Cleveland was founded with the goal of providing the best coffee possible. Their products are the highest quality single origin beans and flavored coffees offered anywhere in the world. You may wonder, "what do goats have to do with coffee?" Their name originates from the ancient folklore of how coffee was discovered. In the 1500's, a Goat herdsman an Ethiopian named Kaldi would free range feed his goats. His goats would always stop and eat the red ripe cherries that grew on a bush and after eating these red cherries they would start jumping and running around with a new burst of energy. He shared his experience with friends and fellow Herdsman, and they all decided to pick some of the red berries and boil them. Once they had boiled them and decided to drink the juice, they felt a new burst of energy and knew that this is what the goats had experienced as well. The news of this new drink spread around the world and became known as Coffee. You can find Jumpin Goat Southern Pecan Coffee in our North Georgia gift box.


It was so refreshing to visit the North Georgia mountains for this piece of our Tour of Georgia. To have a tranquil escape to North Georgia from your home, order our North Georgia gift box here.

Georgia Sourdough Co.

The result is a variety of Sweet, Savory, and Spicy flavor options with a Southern Flair.

Cason and Virginia Callaway set out on a mission to connect man and nature in a way that benefits both, establishing Callaway Gardens in the 1950s. Since then, four generations of the family have expanded this mission by founding Montane Sparkling Spring Water. Montane Sparkling spring water is derived from Blue Springs’ quartzite bedrock, which produces some of the purest water on the planet. Upholding the purity of this refreshing product, you won't find any artificial sweeteners, calories, sugar or sodium in Montane products. Each flavor of Montane Sparkling Water stays true to the Southern heritage of the family. A 2019 Flavor of Georgia winner, their Grapefruit Peach flavor can be found in our Made in Atlanta gift box.


We loved (virtually) visiting Georgia's capital and seeing these wonderful artisans. To take a trip to the ATL without leaving your home, shop our Made in Atlanta gift box here.

Meet the Artisans

Southern Straws Cheese Straws

Columbus, bordered by the Chattahoochee River, is home to the longest urban whitewater rafting in the world! One artisan duo who calls Columbus home is Margaret and Neal Amos, the mother-and-son team behind Southern Straws. Growing up, Neal and his younger brothers would watch their mother make thousands of cheese straws for friends during the holidays. In 2014, they turned their hobby into a business when they launched Southern Straws. The foundation for their delicious cheese straws is an old recipe Margaret got from her mother. Their unique bite-size shape makes them perfect for salads, soups, chili, even grits! Southern Straws offers three flavors of cheese straws including: Original, their most popular flavor with a nice kick of spice featured in our Middle Georgia gift boxSpicy, for those who like a little more heat; and Mild, no heat but focused on the rich cheddar flavor.


Biron Teas

Biron Teas is owned and operated by Andi Biron. Andi has a Master of Science in Homeopathy. Biron Teas initial herbal blends were made for friends and family to help them overcome the stage of life they were going through. Love & Laughter was made for a friend going through a bad break-up. Memory Magic was made for a single mom trying to finish her degree. Worryease was made for Andi who loves to sip it when she feels overwhelmed. Each Biron Teas blend has a unique story and purpose. Continuing their commitment to sustainability, Biron Teas teabags and overwraps are biodegradable so you can feel good about what you're sipping. Their Peach Honeybush Tea is featured in our Middle Georgia gift box.  


Rinse Bath & Body

In 2002, Heather Swanepoel took up soap-making as hobby after figuring out she was horrible at knitting. To justify making pounds of soap at a time to her husband, she would give away her soap to anyone who would take it. As she experimented with ingredients, she found herself perfecting products and people wanted to buy her products. With that, Rinse Bath & Body was born. With 20 product categories, they offer divine smelling products from soaps to shower bombs to lip balms and beyond. You can find Rinse Bath & Body at over 1500 retail partners (including Georgia Crafted, of course!) as well as Disneyland and Disney World. The Georgia Crafted Peaches carry multiple varieties of their products and are excited to feature their Oats & Honey soap in our Middle Georgia gift box.


Corks Kettle Corn

Another great college town, Statesboro is not only home to Georgia Southern but also some of the best kettle corn you'll ever taste from Corks Kettle Corn. On a whim, David Cork bought a kettle corn cooker in the early 2000’s and started popping at the local farmers market. From that simple beginning, Corks Kettle Corn has grown their wholesale distribution and ships popcorn all over the country. They offer multiple varieties of kettle corn including their famous Original Kettle Corn, Old Fashioned Caramel Corn, and their Simply Salted Corn. To ensure their customers get the highest-quality product, they use mushroom style popcorn that pops up to HUGE fluffy pieces, and  take extra time to sift out any un-popped or broken pieces. Their Original Kettle Corn is featured in our Middle Georgia gift box and you can shop all of their products in our Middle Georgia collection. 


Phickles Pickles

Athens is not only home to the University of Georgia and the Dawgs but also Phickles Pickles. In 2008, Angie Tillman began selling pickled veggies off her front porch and then in stores all over Georgia. With that, Phickles Pickles was born. A definite foodie and talented cook, Angie  has shared recipes on her social media platforms over the years - many of which have now become products she's added to the Phickles brand!  In her words, "Pretty much... if it's something I like to eat, I'm packaging it for resell!" At this time, Phickles offers seven different pickled veggies, two cheese spreads, three bbq sauces, two pepper jellies and a salsa.... all are gluten-free and low sugar. Her top-selling Phickles Carrot Stix are featured in our Middle Georgia gift box.



You may know Augusta for the legendary Masters golf tournament but this charming town also features lovely small businesses like Watanut. Augusta, Georgia natives and Watanut founders, Brian and Kam Kyzer, are adventurous, creative, and love to take the road less traveled. Their gourmet nut mixes and shortbread cookies are made from scratch from the finest ingredients, baked fresh daily, and packed by hand. They source local growers and shellers for Georgia’s best pecans for their gourmet pecan gifts.The name Watanut comes from their enthusiasm and passion for what they do. Their delicious Georgia Pecan Shortbread cookies are featured in our Middle Georgia gift box.

Oliver Farm

Wisham Jellies

Located in Tifton, Wisham Jellies produces some of the best pepper jelly varieties you can find. With the help of a throwback recipe, peppers from his garden, and a passion for grilling, Eric Wisham began getting creative with his pepper jelly batches during the summer of 2012. After a busy summer spent at his local farmers market in Downtown Tifton, he began his peppery journey to making and creating Wisham Jellies for store shelves in October 2013. Wisham Jellies Pepper Jellies are handmade with whole peppers and fruits which keeps their ingredients list short and sweet. Their Peachy Peach Pepper Jelly can be used in a variety of ways and is featured in our South Georgia gift box. 

Grassroots Coffee

Thomasville is known for the Rose Show, Victorian Christmas, and great quail hunting, but one gem located in historic Downtown is Grassroots Coffee.

They responsibly source their beans from all over the world by working closely with importers, exporters, and farms to get the best beans possible. In 2019 alone, Grassroots Coffee roasted 45,000 lbs. of coffee.
