What’s creamy or crusty, savory or sweet, breakfast, lunch or dinner, vegan, nutty, meaty, fishy, stove top or oven? That would be mac and cheese! Allison Arevalo and Erin Wade left successful careers in law and marketing to combine their passion, vision, and go-for-broke love of this cheesy pasta to create the Homeroom Mac & Cheese Restaurant of Oakland, California. Next they decided to hand over 50 of their top recipes in the Mac & Cheese Cookbook!
Each recipe starts with the easy to follow basics of expert, pasta cookery, cream sauce and cheese, or Mac Sauce, as they call it, then the launch! Steam, sauté, toss or stir-in a wide variety of add-ins to take each dish to surprising places. They pair recipes with sides, desserts, even beer and wine. And this stuff goes international with titles like Cacio e Pepe, Sriracha Mac, and Patatas Brava Mac! Of course, there’s gluten free, which we’re all getting acquainted with, and Trailer Mac? Hmm…Well, why not?
Get your friends together, cook up the basic recipe, then put out loads of other suggested ingredients and let dinner begin! Or call off the hot dogs and pizza and do your next kid-friendly birthday party like a pro in the know! Artichoke Hearts Macximus? Mac and Blue? Mac-Cakes? Give them something they know and love, then invite that master chef to come bounding out, over a bowl of classic goodness! And just in case you’re wondering what a lawyer and marketing professional can tell you about mac and cheese, the authors send in reassurance! Erin’s experience as a pastry and line cook, and Alison’s customer service at top restaurants in New York, is the perfect backdrop for the success of their restaurant and this tasty little volume. The Mac & Cheese Cookbook: Quick, hot, cheesy, a bit crazy, a whole lot of comforting, and a whole new world of fun!
