What a neat idea - 25 people all receive the same cookbook and get to choose any dish from the book and write about it. I can't wait to see what everyone else picks. But first let me back up a bit. A while ago Potter Stewart Clarkson Publishers sent Cath of A Blithe Palate a stack of Mitchell Davis's Kitchen Sense to share with some of her blogger friends. So she and Alicat & Sara thought of this great idea. Here's my offering - The Ultimate Macaroni & Cheese.
Ultimate Macaroni & Cheese
The day I first got the book, it was cold and rainy and when I saw this very rich and cheesy mac & cheese - it was the perfect comfort food for the day. Mitchell Davis does a great job of creating several dishes that are similar and provides extra tips for those new to the kitchen. It was hard to choose between the baked macaroni & cheese with tomatoes, and this one - but the ultimate mac & cheese won....and why not - 4 kinds of cheese - goat, gouda, cheddar & Parmigiano, butter, milk and breadcrumbs seasoned with Worcestershire sauce and mustard.
You'll have to buy the book for the exact ingredients, but I can tell you this.....delicious (not very diet friendly, and lots of pots and stuff to wash up, but - hey - it was worth it.)
Normally I buy cookbooks, not so much for detailed recipe directions, but rather to inspire me and being visual, I usually go for those with photographs. There aren’t any here, but it’s a great addition to any cookbook library with lots of variations and advice.
