Pimento cheese is recognized as one of the South’s unique and iconic foods, and Palmetto Cheese is one of the country’s most touted brands. The Pametto Cheese recipe was created by Sassy Henry who brought it to the Lowcountry in 2002 when she and husband Brian purchased the historic and beloved Sea View Inn in Pawleys Island. Henry’s Palmetto Cheese became a featured appetizer prepared for guests by the Inn’s African-American cooks, along with their own specialties such as smothered pork chops, collards, speckled butter beans, pickled okra, biscuits and fruit cobblers.
The Henry’s and their cooks, all Pawleys Island women who are essential to the Henry’s Lowcountry food aesthetic, will share the stories, philosophy and growth of their culinary ventures, including the regional dishes that are the specialty of their local takeout business, Get Carried Away.
Reservations are required. Please call the Art Museum at 843.238.2510 for all reservations.
