Toronto chefs serving up gourmet Mac n' Cheese downtown this week

Oct 7 2019, 10:27 am

Get ready to dive face-first into all the creamy, comforting mac n’ cheese you can handle.

Because the Mac ‘N’ Cheese Smackdown is returning to University of Toronto’s St. George campus this week.

From 11 am to 1 pm on October 9, the community is invited to gather at Willcocks Commons to sample mac n’ cheese creations from four home-grown chef teams.

For $5, you get to try each of the dishes and then vote for which team deserves to win the ultimate Mac ‘N’ Cheese championship trophy.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to the U of T Student food bank, while all the cheese you can handle will end up in your tummy.

Anticipate a three-cheese Mac with an herb crunch and crispy shallots, a traditional Mac with Southern-style chicken, a caramelized onion and bacon Mac n’ cheese with crispy cheddar and toasted Panko crumble, and Mac n’ Cheesy chicharrones bits.
