I get a little nervous when I talk about pairing wine with pimento cheese. I think it’s a little presumptuous of me. Honestly, I don’t know a lot about wine. But I like to cook, and I like to research, and my husband is a willing guinea pig.
My favorite combination is a nice Pinot Grigio and Birdie’s Cream Cheese and Black Pepper. A cool, crisp glass of wine with a little PC on a cracker, add a couple of friends and you have a lovely afternoon. Especially this time of year. Autumn in Southern Virginia can run so fast, with fall festivals, football and homecoming dances. It’s nice to slow down a bit and savor a delicious moment.
If you get over to our neighborhood sometime, Rosemont of Virginia is a beautiful winery just up the road from us. Be sure to stop in to see them. Tell them Birdie says, “Hi.”
Fresh garlic is an amazing thing. We're fortunate enough to have a local farm, Mighty Oaks Farm, supply the garlic for our Garlic Parmesan Pimento Cheese.
I've used a lot of garlic in my time. Some of those cooking shows talk about rubbing a wooden bowl with a clove of garlic. They say that will give your salad a light garlic flavor. Pfffft. Chop that baby up!! and add it to the salad. I've told folks that we eat garlic like we think our hometown is infested with vampires. And not the cute kind!
I’ll use the minced, jarred kind in a pinch; it’s better than nothing. But I really like fresh. It tastes warm and earthy. Yummy is all I can think even hours after I’ve finished the dish. That’s what makes the Garlic Parmesan Pimento Cheese so delicious. Let me know what you think of it.
Robin Allen is having a ball with all the possibilities of Pimento Cheese. She really loves being Birdie.
