Grove Recipes with the Debutante Farmer: Part 1, Elizabeth’s Pimento Cheese
by Joe Scott
The true worth of a tailgater can always be boiled down to the taste of your signature gameday dish. From the zest of your hot wings to the zing of your dip, we all know that what really makes gameday are the flavors that you can only find at the Grove.
Visit Oxford was lucky enough to sit down with the Debutante Farmer, Elizabeth Heiskell, as she shared with us some of her signature gameday dishes. Nobody does gameday quite like we do here in Oxford. These savory dishes can bring your tailgating game up a notch, and give you some real Oxford style.
Here is Elizabeth showing you how to whip up her absolutely delicious Pimento Cheese.
Elizabeth shared her recipe with us so that you could try it yourself!

½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
6 ounces roasted red peppers, diced
¼ cup chopped pecans

¼ tsp Tabasco
¼ tsp Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning
