Pimento Cheese: The Cookbook (St. Martin’s Griffin, Sept. 2014)

A Southern staple gets a makeover in Pimento Cheese: The Cookbook (St. Martin’s Griffin, Sept. 2014). Authored by The Runaway Spoon blogger Perre Coleman Magness, this cheesy guide gives modern variations on the comfort-food classic, with recipes such as savory cheesecake, cheesy breakfast popovers, and creamy Southern-style risotto. All the basics are covered, too—Magness gives us the history of the star players (pimento peppers, paprika, cheddar cheese, and mayonnaise), along with a recipe for homemade mayo. With vibrant photographs and 50 straightforward recipes, you can have your (cheese)cake and eat it, too.
