Abstract
  • At its simplest, pimento cheese consists of cheddar, pimiento peppers, and mayonnaise. This thesis investigates the role of pimento cheese spread in regard to a particular history, place, and context within the Piedmont of North and South Carolina to provide a name and face to the men and women who have produced and consumed the food over the past century. The history and narratives woven together about pimento cheese reveal a simple and meaningful food that provides a window into working class experience, memory, and regional identity.
