Mac & Cheese War Erupts

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Amateur chefs are going to war armed with their whisks and a bowl of macaroni and cheese.

San Francisco Food Wars, which puts together cooking competitions for foodies in the bay area, is pitting chefs against each other in a fierce, al dente duel with the “Mac Battle Royale w/ Cheese” on Sunday (Aug. 23).

Cooks will showcase their best recipes for macaroni and cheese with the hopes of taking home the crown and so far, participants are whipping up some off-the-wall ideas to impress judges.

Event founder Jeannie Choe expects spins on traditional mac and cheese, like one recipe that’ll include chicharrones, or fried pork skin, and a dish of mac and cheese ribs, which she says “sounds bizarre” but is excited to try.

Though she’s looking forward to fancy takes on the old standard, Choe says it would be funny if someone just brought a bowl of Easy Mac.
