If you forgot about National Mac and Cheese Day, don’t worry we have got you covered! Macaroni and cheese is a blank canvas that invites us cheese lovers to use our imagination and creativity. It needs to be creamy, ooey and gooey, with a flavor that is bold enough to withstand the melting process.
World Cheese Champion Gruyere from Gourmino is a great place to start, a cheese that loves melting with a flavor that seems to elevate when doing so. Combine with an aged cheddar from Jake’s Gouda right here in NY to give it some sharpness, nuttiness and a little more punch. Try their smoked Gouda to give the illusion of adding meat without having to do so. Want Spicy? go with Monterrey Jack from Great Lakes Cheese. Feeling bold? How about a Blue Yonder from Lively Run Goat Dairy. Extra creamy with a pop of herbs? Throw in some their herbed goat cheese. Keeping it vegan? Go with our Daiya vegan mozzarella, cheddar, or Beemster Vlaskaas creamy flax cheese. Cheating to make it creamier? Throw in a little organic cream cheese.
It’s is an endless pursuit with limitless combinations, so we invite you to experiment and send us pictures/recipes of your favorite combinations to make the perfect mac and cheese. If you need inspiration, check out our extensive library of cheeses by heading here
