“Mac and cheese is a go-to comfort meal for many of us. But a funny thing happened a few years ago—it became gourmet. Many of the finest restaurants added mac and cheese to their menus. But these dishes weren’t your Howard Johnson versions; they were elegant ones with fine cheeses and interesting pasta. Leave it to Ellen Brown to pounce on the trend and to produce a new cookbook. Her recipes are not limited to creamy pasta dishes either, but include canapés to serve at parties and even desserts.”

"Whether you like the standard dish with an abundance of cheese or want to try something a bit different with crab or lobster, Brown has all the choices. The book also includes a few decadent and caloric desserts such as orzo pudding made with Grand Marnier or macaroni with a rich and nutty Mascarpone sauce."
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. "
