Chef Vivian Howard — who stars in PBS' A Chef's Life — will soon launch her own product line. According to Triangle Business Journal, Howard has partnered with speciality retailer Southern Season to launch the Vivian Howard for Southern Season collection. The line will feature items like "artisan food products, gadgets, kitchen staples," and more. The collection will launch in time for the upcoming holiday season and will be available at Southern Season's three flagship stores and through its catalog. Southern Season's blog notes that in early 2015, Howard will debut "an exclusive line" of products for the retailer based on some of her favorite recipes.
It's a busy year for Howard, who is also the co-owner of the restaurant the Chef & the Farmer in North Carolina. She recently landed a deal to write two books. First up is a book that explores "regional American cooking" that is set to be released in in 2015.
