Time for a PIMENTO CHEESE MINUTE:
Marty came back from a record buy in Danville with this Pimento Cheese from an Irish bakery known for it’s cinnamon buns. It’s very cream cheese and mayo heavy and the pimentos are sort of sparse, as you can see from the picture, only two are visible from the outside…hmmmmm. Also it claims to be “From the Heart of Taste”. Where could that be and is it always so mayonnaise-y there, I wonder?
Conceptually it’s odd to for an Irish bakery to feature pimento cheese, but in reality if that bakery is in the South, then it makes total sense. I commend them for offering it. To each Southerner, his own style of Pimento Cheese, and to this Yankee, a lot less mayo and cream cheese please and way more pimentos!
This past weekend, Christophile and I interviewed Jason Alley at Comfort about Pimento Cheese for the documentary. Jason was just awesome. It was great talking “P.C.” with him and I look forward to viewing the footage. Next month, we hit Charleston, SC so if you have Pimento Cheese tip offs in that neck of the woods what are ya waiting for?
