Awesome mac and cheeses around the country
There is a fine line between pasta with cheese and a genuine macaroni and cheese, says Laura Werlin. "What distinguishes a mac and cheese is lots of cheesiness," she says. "When you lift the pasta, there are strings that attach it to the dish." She should know. The food writer won a James Beard Award for writing The All American Cheese and Wine Book, penned two tracts about grilled cheese sandwiches, and has another fromage tome, Mac & Cheese, Please!: 50 Super Cheesy Recipes, coming out in December. We didn't want to wait until then to dig in, so we asked Werlin to put her research to good use and concoct a mac and cheese tour of the country — you might want to hide the scale for a while.
