Praise For Mac & Cheese

John Mariani, Food & Travel Correspondent, Esquire Magazine
“Fabulous!!! One of the only times I can say I'd actually like to make every recipe in there!"

Larry Cox at What’s Cooking?, TucsonCitizen.com
“The recipes in this collection are fairly easy to prepare and accessible.  What gives this cookbook its legs are the unexpected variations on this timeless comfort food.”

Knoxville News Sentinel
“The majority of Brown's recipes are adapted from versions served at high-end restaurants, which means few of the dishes include processed cheese foods such as Velveeta or American cheeses. Instead, what you will find are recipes featuring the yumminess of mozzarella, provolone, Muenster, fontina, Gruyere and mascarpone, just to name a few.

If you're a macaroni and cheese connoisseur you will be well served throughout the upcoming winter months with this 192-page softbound book. "
