Pimento Party

Pimento Party

When you go to Asheville, you go to Tupelo Honey. You just do. It's like "when you to Orlando, you go to Disney World" or "when you go to St. Louis, you go to the arch." 

It happens, and it's good. 

In the case of Tupelo Honey, it's lip smacking, belly busting, eyes rolling back in your head good. This Southern restaurant is an Asheville mainstay for a reason. They have out of this world staples--biscuits, fried green tomatoes, and meatloaf--right alongside quirky innovations.
I mean, where else can you get an Appalachian egg roll?

Well, now you don't have to travel to North Carolina for a taste of Tupelo Honey. With their new Pimento Cheese of the Month Club, a little bit of the restaurant's flair comes to you. Every other month, you or your very lucky gift recipient receives a made-from-scratch tub of pimento cheese along with grass-fed charcuterie (i.e. cured meat) from Hickory Nut Gap Farm, the valley east of Asheville, and fancy artisanal crackers made by the folks at Roots and Branches, an Asheville bakery. For an extra charge of $10, they'll even add some yummy pickles. 

At $228 for the base package, this club is a bit of splurge, but you might look at it this way. Unlike a day spa or a fancy hotel, this splurge isn't a one shot deal. It turns your entire year into one big pimento party.
And if FedEx Ground is not fast enough for ya, you can make your own batch of pimento cheese right now. Here's the recipe from Tupelo Honey's cookbook.
