Get your Mac On!!!!

The Mac-n-Cheese Bowl has found a new home. This year’s competition is this Saturday at the Albany Mariott on Wolf Road in Colonie. If you plan on going you might want to grab your tickets sooner rather than later since it sold out last year. What can I say, people love their mac-n-cheese.
With 30 restaurants strutting their stuff there’s sure to be a lot of variety. Last year’s dishes had ingredients ranging from lobster to nachos to jalapeños, but don’t worry, they also had plenty of traditional mac-n-cheese as well. You can get in on the fun by chowing down and voting for your favorite take on the classic American cuisine. A panel of judges will also be on hand to crown a winner and select a best recipe from a field of 11 competing home cooks. Winners walk away with a trophy and some bragging rights. I’m sure I’ll walk away with a full stomach. (unless they have to lift me out of there with a crane)
If this sounds like its right down your alley, you can buy tickets at Price Chopper or at the door if they don’t sell out. It’s all for a good cause: proceeds from the event benefit the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York.
