1. Harvest Moon Cafe in Rome

You say, “On Saturday at the Georgia game, I had some of Harvest Moon’s PC for the first time at a Rome tailgate. It was outrageously fabulous — probably the best I’ve ever had. Everybody was talking about it” and “Harvest Moon in Rome, GA has the absolute best pimento cheese! It’s called Wicked Pimina Cheese. If you haven’t tried it, then you need to make the drive up to Rome for lunch at Harvest Moon to try their pimento cheese. Definitely worth your time!”

And just one more note on Harvest Moon’s Wicked Pimina Cheese. It’s now available locally at Sawicki’s in Decatur.

1.Home Grown GA

Jennifer Turknett, Food and More blogger on Southern cuisine, says, “Pimento cheese is taken to the next level at Home Grown GA.  The pimento cheese is spread on grilled Texas toast and then topped with bacon and fried green tomatoes to make a dish known as ‘Grant’s Stack.’  The bacon’s richness and the acidity from the tomatoes perfectly complement the pimento cheese. The warmth of the sandwich makes it deliciously gooey, yielding the ultimate comfort food.”

Vertie Moody at Clayton Food Store in northern Cherokee County. I was their breadman for ten years or so. She also makes the best pound cake in GA. And she has a dessert called cherry surprise and oreo surprise that will make you hurt yourself eating it.

At the risk of being ridiculed, I’m going to throw in a vote for Sevananda. It may not win the race among the old Southern institutions here, but their version is a little bit different and surprisingly good.

Nadine’s Pimento Cheese in Cleveland, Ga. is the best. She sell’s it at Adams Food, all the J and J stores in Gainesville and Dahlonega and Foothills in Pickens County. During the Summer she can be found at Loganberry Heritage Farm. It is the BEST in the state.

I live in Athens and Marti’s PC is very good. She uses a lot of cream cheese, though…hmmm. On Saturday at the Georgia game, I had some of Harvest Moon’s PC for the first time at a Rome tailgate. It was outrageously fabulous — probably the best I’ve ever had. Everybody was talking about it. And, as for Augusta National, the PC isn’t really the best — but it’s the best part of the food experience at the tournament:)
