THE FACTORY | THIS WEEK 4.14.2014 – 4.18.2014

THE-FACTORY-THIS-WEEK-414-01

“For many Southerners, pimento cheese—or “pimenocheese,” as we tend to say it—is a touchstone of childhood, a favorite filling for lunchbox and picnic sandwiches. But this tangy blend of sharp cheese, mayonnaise, and roasted red peppers is a great grown-up food too…”
–Edna Lewis, The Gift of Southern Cooking

There are a variety of recipes for pimento cheese—especially in the South—but I’ve become partial to The Factory Café’s house made version, featuring the (not-so-secret) ingredients: horseradish and Worcestershire sauce.

We hope that you can join us at The Factory this week (for pimento cheese and more),
