What is Mac & Cheese?

You can't avoid this one-pot dish: Mac & Cheese! This American classic of quick cuisine has become an indispensable part of many restaurants' menus. The abbreviation “Mac” stands for the small, round macaroni noodles. The cheese, "Cheese", is our absolute favorite ingredient and is definitely one of them.

How the macaroni got into the cheese

How Mac & Cheese became the American classic cannot be said for sure. Legend has it that Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States, was the inventor of this favorite dish. At that time he brought a pasta machine with him from his trip from Naples, but no pasta recipe with cheese was recorded in his memoirs. No matter who got the idea, we love it!

The secret of Mac & Cheese

The secret of one-pot pasta is very simple. To make your macaroni really nice and creamy, the noodles simply have to be boiled in milk and mixed with the remaining ingredients. This pasta dish impresses with its three times the power of milk, butter and cheese. So it feasted in our cheese hearts with the twist of a spoon. Pretty cheesy ...
