Adorable Damaris Phillips Teaches Her Winning Southern Pimento Cheese Recipe

Food Network Star Winner Damaris Phillips wowed judges with her Southern pimento cheese.  It should be a crime how much fun this woman has in the kitchen.

Despite being a darn good cook, Damaris Phillips is simply cute as a button and funny as all get out.  She’s a delight to watch and we should all strive to enjoy cooking as much as she does.  When she competed on The Next Food Network Star, one of the dishes that impressed the most was her easy pimento cheese.  It was said that Bobby Flay was a huge fan and it may have helped win her the competition.



Check out this video from Well Done where Damaris shows us how easy it is to throw together. She’s a hoot …so much personality without saying a word!  We sure do thank this Kentucky girl for sharing her version of “Caviar of the South” 😉
