The Big Cheesy

FoodCandace2 Comments


New Orleans, Louisiana is one crazy cool city and the perfect place, in my opinion to, create the Guinness World Record Macaroni and Cheese.


Tomorrow, along with Chef John Folse, Cabot Creamery will make a 2100 pound vat of cheesy deliciousness on Fulton Square in New Orleans's storied French Quarter.

Chef Folse will use the World's Best Cheddar as well as 1,100 pounds of milk from Brown's Dairy, butter, elbow macaroni, King Arthur Flour and 100 pounds of bread crumbs in a 1797 iron cast kettle. All of these ingredients will create an enormous dish of delicious southern comfort food, weighing 2,100 pounds.  Guinness World Records will measure and weigh the final product and verify its new record status.

For a mere $5 you can be a part of history, tasting a world record dish made by a world-renown chef in hand-made souvenir ceramic bowl.  The proceeds from all sales at the event will contribute to the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity’s housing efforts. The Magnolia School, a nonprofit organization that provides assistance to adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities, will provide the beautiful homemade bowls. You can pre-purchase the bowls at any local Rouses supermarket.

So if you're in the New Orleans area on September 23, 2010, join us for lunch, a world record, and a delicious good time at Fulton Square!
