These two are mashing up age-old recipes with creative modern twists, from beer-can barbecue chicken sliders smothered with smoked gouda, to perfect deviled eggs topped with their bacon-packed, jalapeno-spiked pimento cheese.Tyler has blue eyes. Juliana has freckles. Together, with their blue-eyed freckled powers, they're putting a modern spin on the Southern recipes they grew up with. Yes, the art of Southern food can easily be bungled (or over-buttered), but these two are mashing up age-old recipes with creative modern twists, from beer-can barbecue chicken sliders smothered with smoked gouda, to perfect deviled eggs topped with their bacon-packed, jalapeno-spiked pimento cheese. For many a Southerner, pimento cheese ain't just beloved, but sacred. And Tyler and Juliana's version is downright heavenly on their deviled eggs, sandwiches, or (if you're really shameless) straight out of the container on a fork. Guilty as charged.
You may have spotted the duo's food truck puttering around the city for the past few months, but back in January, this sunny little shop became its brick-and-mortar pimento cheese-making HQ. With refurbished church pews for seating, cheery tangerine-colored checkered floors and an ever-changing chalkboard menu, the eatery shares the same classic-meets-modern aesthetic as the menu: familiar, but not quite like how Grandma would've done it. And in their words, that's the whole point: giving folks a taste of the familiar, but with a whole new kind of experience. (And with a heaping side-dish of community good. Grandma would definitely approve.)
