Brooklyn Mac and Cheeze Takedown (I’m in!)

Mac & Cheeze, pleeeeeze!

After taking a competitive cooking hiatus, I am gearing up for the Brooklyn Mac and Cheeze Takedown this coming Sunday, March 23rd, at the Bell House from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. The event sold out in a ridiculously short amount of time (tickets were gone faster than I ever remember any Takedown selling out), which can only mean one thing: NYC is READY FOR CHEESY GOODNESS RIGHT NOW!

So before the weather turns definitively spring-like, this will be rich comfort food’s last stand before making way for tender lettuces and baby veg. For those of you who have tickets, I look forward to seeing you there! And for those of you who were not able to score them in time, I promise I will keep you all updated!

In the meanwhile, here is how you can help me out. I am still mulling over ideas for the Takedown and haven’t decided what to make yet! Any and all ideas are welcome!Ā

    Suggestions from the non-cook:
    – Mac n’ cheese carbonara (this may be pedestrian but I’m sure you can make it extra special)
    – Mock shepherd’s pie – instead of mashed potatoes, use mac n’ cheese as the topping
    – Mac n’ cheese napoleon – layer anything you want in between (I’m hearing the call of crispy bacon layer on top)

    Good luck, dearest!

      Those all sound amazing, dearest Hajusuuri! I am really liking the idea of the mock shepherd’s pie . . . but they are all good ones! Thank you for the good luck wishes as well! My kitchen is going to be trashed setting up all these samples!

          You know me so well! Yes, I have a friend who has offered to come and help me on Saturday. Hopefully, it will get me to start earlier — which is so hard with my schedule. In any case, let’s cross fingers for an earlier rather than a later night!

      OMG! I’ve never heard of the site before! It is brilliant, inspiring, awe-inspiring, and a wee bit scary!

      Looks like some artery-hardening fun to be had. Will peruse and report back! Thank you for letting me know!

      You can’t beat that! A truffled mac and cheese sounds divine! I’m torn between doing a classic mac and cheese but just really well, and doing something crazy.

      Crazy might win out . . . šŸ™‚

    I think I just salivated all over the front of my shirt. I LOVE good mac and cheese. No doubt, there will be some interesting variations at the event! My recommendation, some kind of mac and cheese with Tabasco. Yumminess.

    I always love the Take Down posters! Please report back on how it all went!

    Even though I am not a fan of blue cheese, I can appreciate it in a dish. Gorgonzola and fig mac and cheese would have been expensive but decadent.

      Aren’t they great? So creative!

      Will report very soon! The semester has been busy lately, but only four more weeks to go!

      And a Gorgonzola and fig mac and cheese sounds absolutely divine!
