Mac N' Cheese NYC Style
An American classic comfort food taken to new heigths! Remember that blue box that perhaps was your first attempt at cooking? Well this version is a wee bit more than the blue box offered.
The original Blue Box Mac n' Cheese
The king of fungi - Tuber Melanosporum (better know as a truffle)
What: Mac and Cheese
Where: Waverly Inn, NYC
, owner of the Waverly Inn and editor-in-chief of , has revamped an American favorite from a comfort classic to a comfort classy $$$$$
"The new truffle-laden mac and cheese is a nod to the common man at the restaurant generally reputed for its exclusivity. How exclusive you ask? Well, as I was welcomed into the dining room by a leggy and attractive hostess,chairman, passed by arm in arm with Ivanka Trump. Moreover, our fellow diners included the legendary super model and Playboy playmate, along with and .
The mac and cheese is made with a fine white Vermont cheddar and garnished with shaven white truffle. To add to the fanfare of it all, the Chef comes out from the back-of-house to shave the truffle onto your dish table side."
At this price one must drink a fine champagne for sure, no glass of mik to wash this plate down as wee once did after school as a snack. This one brings back such memories, but ya know my mom wasn't serving this with shaved truffles-was yours? <smile>
Today, one of my now favourite comfort dishes is Namya (Khanom Jin Namya), a fish - coconut milk curry served with mie/noodles and fresh Tahi Basil/ bai horopa, or Khao Soy, a creamy coconut milk curry of chicken with egg noodles and topped with crisy fried noodles.
A bowl of yummy Khao Soy, popular dish of North East Thailand.
For the original Mac story from Pocket Change:
What next after a plate of $90 Mac and Cheese? Perhaps cavair, at least it is great with vodka or champagne instead of a glass of moo juice.
