Mac and Cheese attempt 3
Posted on June 13, 2012
Every now and then I get the motivation out of now where to make something…and I typically nail it (see Prime Rib, Ribs, this and that). However lately I have been trying to make the most perfect mac and cheese and failing. DO not worry…I still eat my attempts as does Ash (she keeps saying its good) but I know better!
Last night after wrapping our House Hunters shoot. I was in the mood to attempt mac and cheese for the third time. Ash told me I needed Bechamel cheese! I drive over to Whole Foods and ask the cheese monger for Bechamel cheese. He says, “there is no such thing.” I do not believe him…”come on, this is Whole Foods you got to have Bechamel cheese,” I answered back. The guy was hella nice and called back to the dairy department asking for Bechamel cheese.
Ash calls me…”MARK!!! Bechamel is not a cheese its a type of sauce, sorry bub! Love you!”
Me: Uhhhh, thanks.
Cheese Monger turns around…”Bechamel is a sauce which is basically like a roux….”
I also bought already shredded white mild cheddar cheese and a hollandse cream style cheese.
I heated the roux/ bechamel and added the shredded cheeses and boiled the pasta shells.
Everything seemed perfect. And this attempt did taste better. A solid 7 on a 10 point scale.
Will try again soon. I’m mac and cheesed out right.
