Everyone once in a while, I get intensely interested by a food that’s consider a cultural staple that I’ve never encountered before.
And now: pimento cheese.
Look, I’m from New England in a big way. You want to know about American chop suey or grapenut ice cream? I’m your guy. But pimento cheese is a complete mystery to me — which is why I’m helping to fund this Kickstarter project:
As I’m writing this, the project has just under 48 hours to get fully funded. I pledged $15, for which (if the project is a success) I’ll become the proud owner of a “community style cookbook of beloved pimento cheese recipes from real Southerners and converts alike!”
But mostly, I just really want to see this film and find out what the big deal is.
Because honestly, it looks kinda nasty. Prove me wrong, Southern Americans!
