If you read the blog, you know that I recently went to Village Tavern and was able to make Pimento Cheese at the restaurant alongside Corporate Executive Chef Mary Grace Viado Howard.  At the end of the evening, Chef Mary Grace gave me a box of goodies and in it were ingredients for Village Tavern’s Pimento Cheese so that I could recreate the dish at home.

Ingredients to make homemade pimento cheese

As you can see above, Village Tavern uses quality ingredients.  That’s Kerrygold Dubliner 100% Natural Cheese.  It forms the base of the Pimento Cheese.

Freshly Grated Cheese

This recipe only has three ingredients and is soooooo easy to make.  You start by grating the cheese.

Combining pimentos, cheese, and mayonnaise

You then place the grated cheese in a large bowl with pimentos and mayonnaise.    Blend the three ingredients together well and then it’s ready.

Village Tavern used to serve an amazing hot pimento cheese dip. Did they just heat this same pimento cheese?
