Your second chance: Austin Mac & Cheese Festival returns for 2017

Don’t even take the time to noodle it. One of the cheesiest fairs in the town is getting a sophomore-day trip.

Austin’s 2d Mac & Cheese Festival, hosted by Austin Food Magazine, is about for Nov. 19. You can upload the Facebook event on your calendar. Still, price ticket expenses and packages may be introduced in August, aligning with the mag. Tickets cross on sale Aug. 21. This 12 months’ pageant may be held at Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts, which Austin Food Magazine says “will provide a much larger space extra price ticket’s than last 12 months’ festival.” If you don’t forget, the inaugural Mac Lover’s Dream Changed was held at Historic Scoot Inn. That event quickly sold out; over two hundred tickets were snatched up within a day. So, if you’re critical of your dairy decadence, you’ll want to jump on this short.


Austin Food Magazine guarantees several ticket alternatives this 12 months, consisting of a Mac & Cheese Wine Dinner, a Mac & Cheese Brunch before the eventual Grand Tasting, and a VIP option. Endorphins come free with purchase.

Menage a Trois Mac and Cheese

This is a very clean baked mac and cheese recipe. You can make this dish if you boil water and preheat an oven. The cheese sauce is manufactured from cream cheese, milk, butter, and two elements. In the following recipe, the Italian cheeses provolone and Parmesan are two different components, but you may test with the cheese aggregate. I have attempted this cream cheese sauce with cheddar and gouda, which ended in a fairly moderate mac and cheese. Pairing the sauce with cheddar and Parmesan makes a sharper aggregate. I have even heard of people making this cream cheese sauce with Monterey Jack, mozzarella, and pepper jack.

You can use small or medium-sized pasta for the pasta, which includes elbow macaroni or rotini. If you like crunchy macaroni, depart the top naked. For a crackly brown crust, sprinkle grated or shredded Parmesan over the pinnacle before popping it into the oven. Or lay slices of provolone on the model and sprinkle with seasoned breadcrumbs. The breadcrumbs will brown while the slices of cheese beneath will soften ooey-gooey. You can put the whole thing in a casserole dish or make unmarried servings by dividing it amongst personal ramekins.


1 pound macaroni
Three tablespoons butter
8 ounces cream cheese
2 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese, shredded or grated
1 1/2 cups provolone cheese, shredded or grated
salt, pepper, and different seasonings of your desire
greater cheese for topping (optionally available)
Italian breadcrumbs (also optional)

1. preheat oven to 350 stages Fahrenheit.

2. Cook macaroni consistent with package instructions and drain.

3. Bring cream cheese, butter, and milk together in a single spot on the stove. Heat till the butter and cream cheese soften about 10 mins, stirring sometimes.

4. Add the cooked pasta, half a cup of Parmesan, and half a cup of provolone. Stir to mix and season as you want.

5. Pour all of it into a casserole dish or divide among character ramekins. Top with additional cheese and breadcrumbs if favored. Pop the dish or ramekins into the oven and bake for about 1/2 an hour.
