Truck Spotting: Celebrity Chefs Dress Up Macaroni And Cheese for Sandy Relief
Mac-n-Cheese. How do we love thee? Let us count the ways . . .
An American comfort food classic, macaroni and cheese casserole has been a family dinner favorite for decades (if not longer). Whether we grew up on the weeknight blue box, the frozen red & black box, or Grandma’s Sunday dinner masterpiece, many of us looked forward to every bite of cheesy, creamy heaven.
Over the coming two weeks, New Yorkers have a great excuse to indulge in the luscious decadence of cheese, cheese, and more cheese with pasta.
The Stouffers ® Food Truck will stopping at select locations in New York City to offer celebrity chef versions of Stouffers’ mac-n-cheese dish for $4. The celebrity chefs will deliver their own inspired creations with freshly made pasta and 100% real cheddar cheese. Yes, yes, yes! The other ingredients & toppings for each celebrity recipe of the day will be revealed, well…daily. But, we heard that some all-star variations slated for food truck’s menu are: Chili Mac, BBQ Mac, Mex Mac, Veggie Mac and ‘Shroom Mac.
The Nestle® owned frozen foods company has pledged that 100% of the profits from the food truck’s revenue will be donated to the NYC Mayor’s Fund to Advance NYC and earmarked for Hurricane Sandy relief support. So go ahead and grab a delicious hot bowl for a this great cause!
