For the past week my friends and I have been completing our thesis and it totally got my mind of food. And now that thesis is over, I don't know about you, but comfort food is my plat du jour. Yummy, yummy, yummy! I was thinking of macaroni and cheese. I haven't really tried homemade mac and cheese, only those that come in a box, so I've been scanning the net for a great recipe and found this! (see recipe below)
This version features an abundant crusty topping of buttery fresh breadcrumbs. Then there's the combination of four cheeses to add complexity. Also, sauteed shallots, garlic, and a soupcon of Dijon mustard and smoked sweet paprika provide a distinctive zest. Enjoy!
