Homemade pimiento cheese delivered to your doorstep? Sounds like a lazy summer day’s fantasy. In fact, it’s a delicious reality for downtown residents, and it gets even better: the snack fairy comes courtesy of Callie’s Charleston Biscuits. Place an order, then leave a cooler on your porch Wednesday morning, and they’ll nestle their newest menu item inside.
“We’ve been wanting to do pimiento cheese for some time,” says Carrie Morey, who founded the company in 2005 with her mother, local catering maven Callie White. It’s just that with appearances on Today and Unwrapped—plus celeb clients like Susan Sarandon, Ross Perot, Mario Batali, and Nicole Miller—they’ve been a bit busy.
Their handmade spread, a favorite at the parties White caters, finally debuted in March. Find it at Caviar & Bananas, The Wine Shop, Newton Farms, and all Mount Pleasant Piggly Wiggly locations. Customers can also order at www.calliesbiscuits.com (where Morey’s blog includes mouthwatering recipes such as Roasted Pimiento Cheese Chicken). The product has already made it into stores as far away as Texas, Wyoming, even New Jersey, “although we had to explain what it is,” laughs Morey. A few bites of this Southern staple, and the love spreads pretty quickly.
