Milwaukee welcomes Martha's Pimento Cheese
My good pal Martha Davis Kipcak's emerging food empire, Mighty Fine Food, has just launched their new pimento cheese.
I'm honored to say I was one of Martha's earliest taste testers and most enthusiastic supporters.
This is from a new article and review linked below:
An American Classic
"Combining local, handmade Wisconsin cheese with a classic Southern recipe, Martha’s Pimento Cheese takes your taste buds on a delicious cross-country trip. Handcrafted in small batches with premium ingredients, MPC is meant to comfort and nourish. Spread on a sandwich, serve as a dip, crown your best burger, tuck into farm fresh eggs, get to eating . . . . . . no directions required."
From the Mighty Fine Food web site: "When life’s road led Martha Davis Kipcak North from her native Texas to Milwaukee, she fell in love with Wisconsin’s world-class cheese, but longed for a favorite Southern staple: pimento cheese. It was then that the Community Food Advocate and Chef decided to set out on a new culinary adventure. Mighty Fine Food was born with Martha’s Pimento Cheese leading the way, marrying the best of Southern foodway traditions with the best of Wisconsin’s finest contribution to American eating: great cheese."
I really love Martha's story. I really love Martha's Pimento Cheese.

Also kudos to my friend Bob Wills at Clock Shadow Creamery. Martha produces her wonderful Pimento Cheese at the Clock Shadow Creamery, for sale at a number of outlets including the creamery store. Clock Shadow Creamery is the first urban cheese factory in Wisconsin. As Martha would say, 'Good on ya, Bob!'
