Yesterday, a small gathering of friends convened at an undisclosed location in Brooklyn for The First & Only Mac & Cheese Throwdown, or what I’ve decided to call The Fort Green Smack & Cheese Competition. The competition arose due to “a lot of smack talkin’ by a lot of folks” and the winner would walk away with bragging rights.
There were three entrants: my friends Cynthia, Jonathan, and Sean. Each person prepared unique and delicious takes on the dish. Dishes were judged on three official criteria (taste, presentation, innovation) and one unofficial (comfort). So, who won? Hell, if you ask me, since those in attendance were fortunate enough to taste each offering, we were all winners.
Oh, but you want to know who won the competition? Well, just check out the video above. Then hit the jump for additional photos.
Will there be another helping of smack & cheese in the future? Who knows. This one was billed as the “first and only.”
All in all, an awesome time was had by everyone. This is just another example of why I love my exponentially awesome life.
