Cheez Whiz Is Overrated for Cheesesteaks

Philadelphia Inquirer story on the misconception that for a “true” Philly cheesesteak, you’ve got to order one with Cheez Whiz:

At John’s Roast Pork, which serves up taste-test winners on Snyder Avenue, the processed cheese sauce isn’t even served.

“I’m a cheese eater, sweetheart, and I love cheese, but Whiz is not cheese,” says owner Vonda Bucci, 75. “It’s a lot of grease and coloring.”

Provolone, or as we call it, “provie”, all the way. (Via Atrios.)
