The Second Annual Aspen Mac and Cheese Competition

What a great idea! I didn’t get to the first one last year so wasn’t sure what to expect. About 20 local restaurants made a signature Mac and Cheese dish served in small compostable cups to the excited crowd! Recipes ranged from truffle mac and cheese with mushrooms to lobster mac and cheese to ancho chilli mac and cheese with lots of other really imaginative recipes…. who would have thought there were so many ways to prepare this. My daughter and I just loved to sample as many of the non-red meat/bacon ones as we could find! I think the elk/venison recipe was popular with the meat lovers as was a jalapeno and bacon one. Then one voted by texting the restaurant code into a central number. Fun and yummy – we are already planning to do it again next year 🙂

About Bronwyn

Hi. I moved to the Aspen area from Australia in 1997 and have a daughter born right here in Aspen in 2000. I teach skiing (for the past eighteen seasons) and am an Associate Broker with Basalt Realty. I love to ski, snowboard, horseride, raft, and hike with our dog Sheila. This valley offers so much and one day I may also take up golf or fishing!
