The topic of Pimento Cheese the Cookbook by Perre Coleman Magness, is ... I'm sure you'll guess ... pimento cheese.
There are a whole lot of variations of pimento cheese recipes, but that's not all. There are recipes that have the flavor of pimento cheese, like the deviled egg recipe that you'll find on Cookistry.
There are also biscuits, waffles, chicken tenders, shrimp and grits, soup. cheesesteak sandwiches, and a whole lot more of pimento-y cheesey goodness.
One thing I really like about this book is that the recipes that incorporate the flavor of pimento cheese don't have you start by making one of the pimento cheese recipes. They include the amount of cheese, pimento, and other ingredients you need for that particular recipe.
And that means you won't have to make a tub of pimento cheese in order to use a portion of it in a recipe. Not that I couldn't find a use for a tub or three of pimento cheese.
This is a small book - in dimensions and pages. But that's fine. This isn't a topic that needs a lot of space, and 50 recipes is plenty - there's no fluff here, where you think the author tossed in a lame recipe or two, just to fill the pages. It's just the right size and has enough recipes to make or to inspire you to make something else.
How would you like a copy of your very own? Yup, I've got one to give away!
I received a copy of the book from the publisher, who inexplicably sent a second copy; I will cover mailing costs to the winner.
