Aged pimento cheese


"This dish has become the pimento cheese against which I judge all others. Aged Tillamook cheddar as the base for the dish seems brilliant and obvious simultaneously, but many restaurants around Atlanta opt for a simpler cheddar with a less complex flavor. Using aged cheddar makes the pimento cheese complex and rich in a way that separates itself from imitators, and it is heightened by habañero jelly, bacon jam, and grilled bread."
