Tom's Tiny Kitchen Pimento Cheese

8 comments

Something is happening in Tom Flournoy's "tiny kitchen." He's found a way to make pimento cheese taste good. Real good. It's full of thickly shredded, sharp cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, pimentos, onions, and spices. That's it. Now, I know there are fans out there who think pimento cheese tastes good no matter what, but those of us who thought we didn't like it have suddenly had to change our tune. Had "Tom's Son" (that's what his name tag said) not given me a free sample at the Cooper-Young Farmer's Market a few weeks ago, I am sure I wouldn't have even tried it, much less purchased a $7 tub of it. Before I could complete my transaction, two ladies from Cordova came up. They had run out of the delicious sandwich spread and needed more. Now! Tom's Son wasn't surprised. Apparently, the city is full of die-hard fans of Tom's Tiny Kitchen pimento cheese. Available at Miss Cordelia's, High Point Grocery, and SuperLo Foods on Spottswood.
