Product Description

A cookbook that reinvents the American classic, macaroni and cheese, with gourmet ingredients, handcrafted artisan cheeses, and unique flavor combinations.

MELT: THE ART OF MACARONI AND CHEESE is the first book to marry the American standard, macaroni and cheese, with handcrafted artisan cheeses and a wide array of pastas, producing dishes that are both classic and chic. Home cooks of all levels will be encouraged to incorporate fresh, simple ingredients into the everyday comfort food they know and love. Featuring such unexpected and delicious combinations as Beecher's Flagship Cheddar with Avocado, Lime, and Shell Pasta; Drunken Goat, Fennel, Edamame, Mint, and Rotini; and Pumpkin Stuffed with Fontina, Italian Sausage, and Macaroni, MELT takes mac and cheese out of the box and elevates it to a level that will delight even the most sophisticated palates.

Cheese Sophistication; (not the Cheese 101 freshman class), October 22, 2013

I've been working with this cookbook for almost two months now. I wasn't so hot on it at the beginning because I had my heart set on mac 'n cheese. The title of this cookbook is more than a bit misleading: This book is not all about 'melt' or 'mac', but it is all about cheese and cheese pairings. So it took a while for my heart to come around to where my brain and tummy already were. I'm all together now, so you are seeing a five-star rating and not a three or four.So, here's the scoop and the story: If you are looking for recipes for mac 'n cheese as you've come to know it, this might not be the book you are looking for: Only about half the recipes deal with comforting, melting cheese sauce and pasta. In the first half of the book you will find cheese crumbled, cubed, grated on salads and such. To find so many recipes that are NOT mac 'n cheese combos is more than a bit disconcerting. If you accept the first chapters for what they are--and not what you expect...

Is there anything more heartwarming than macaroni and cheese? It is the quintessential comfort food, but Stephanie Stiavetti and Garrett McCord have taken this American classic and turned it into something suitable for a formal dinner. Each page is filled with images that take your breath away and recipes that make you want to rush into the kitchen. When I received my copy of this book I was immediately smitten. There are at least two dozen recipes on my 'must make Now' list! This book is the perfect present for the foodies and cooks on your gift list and will definitely be on my recommendations for the holiday season. Buy it today and you won't be disappointed!

This book is an excellent resource for those lovers of mac and cheese! Not only does it give you a plethora of exciting cheese and pasta combinations, but it also educates the reader on the different types of cheese. Not only was my mouth super happy with the results, but I felt empowered to try all new kinds of cheese and cook all new kinds of recipes. The recipes are easy to read, easy to execute and the results are mouth-watering-ly fantastic! I'm pretty sure all of my loved ones are getting a copy of this book for Christmas!
