Mac & Cheese Please! is book bursting with 50 comforting and fresh macaroni and cheese dishes.

This cookbook does a great job at introducing the novice cook to the basics of cooking pasta and cheese. It includes a run down of all the different kinds of pasta and cheese available and gives hints on the best ways to use each kind.

The book is clear and concise with well prepared directions. The pictures will have your mouth-watering for some cheesy goodness. It includes recipes that use both the oven or stove top methods.

These recipes are main meal fair. They include meat and veggies and are very original and inventive. Usually, my family only considers mac & cheese as being a side or more “picnic” food but this book proves mac & cheese can also be an upscale and gourmet worthy dish.

One caveat, for me, was that the recipes included ingredients that aren’t easily found in a small town grocery store. I can’t just pop over to the local grocery and get truffles or prosciutto. But, there were plenty of recipes that included ingredients I already had on hand.

This is a great cookbook if you really feel like mixing it up and want something totally out of the ordinary.
