Review

John Mariani, Food & Travel Correspondent, Esquire Magazine
“Fabulous!!! One of the only times I can say I'd actually like to make every recipe in there!"

Larry Cox at What’s Cooking?, TucsonCitizen.com
“The recipes in this collection are fairly easy to prepare and accessible.  What gives this cookbook its legs are the unexpected variations on this timeless comfort food.”

Knoxville News Sentinel
“The majority of Brown's recipes are adapted from versions served at high-end restaurants, which means few of the dishes include processed cheese foods such as Velveeta or American cheeses. Instead, what you will find are recipes featuring the yumminess of mozzarella, provolone, Muenster, fontina, Gruyere and mascarpone, just to name a few.

If you're a macaroni and cheese connoisseur you will be well served throughout the upcoming winter months with this 192-page softbound book. "

Providence Journal
“Mac and cheese is a go-to comfort meal for many of us. But a funny thing happened a few years ago—it became gourmet. Many of the finest restaurants added mac and cheese to their menus. But these dishes weren’t your Howard Johnson versions; they were elegant ones with fine cheeses and interesting pasta. Leave it to Ellen Brown to pounce on the trend and to produce a new cookbook. Her recipes are not limited to creamy pasta dishes either, but include canapés to serve at parties and even desserts.”

Norwood Transcript and Bulletin
"Whether you like the standard dish with an abundance of cheese or want to try something a bit different with crab or lobster, Brown has all the choices. The book also includes a few decadent and caloric desserts such as orzo pudding made with Grand Marnier or macaroni with a rich and nutty Mascarpone sauce."

Virtual Gourmet Newsletter
“One-subject cookbooks don't often rise to the level of indispensability that Ellen Brown's newest book, with 80 classic and creative versions of the Ultimate Comfort Food," does with such exuberant style. When you think of it, macaroni and cheese is really an internationally beloved dish, not just the church supper cliché of American cookery.  There are soufflés here, canapés, even desserts from around the world and from some of the best chefs in America, which includes Brown herself. This is that rare book wherein I truly wanted to make every recipe in it, right now.”

Book Club Classics blog
“From finger food appetizers (fried mac and cheese bites) to veggie extravaganzas (Mac and Cheese Margherita) and carnivorous delights (Mayan chipotle chicken) to dessert, Ellen Brown embraces the versatility of America's favorite comfort food.”

Shelf Awareness for Readers
A fresh take on a beloved comfort food that is sure to please all!”

Marin Independent Journal

“Author Ellen Brown provides a wealth of knowledge throughout the book that kept me wanting to turn the pages.”

If you're looking for some of the best recipes for mac & cheese from some of the best restaurants across the country, then this latest offering from veteran food writer, Ellen Brown, is for you. The recipes here call for a variety of pastas, a world of cheeses, and "add-ins" without end - duck, chicken, lobster, shrimp, crab, sausage, ham, bacon, tomatoes, spinach, caramelized onions, spinach, leeks, herbs, and yes, raisins. A beginning section on finger food and a roundup of desserts at the end make this mac & cheese cookbook unique, but it's the depth and breadth of this collection of the ultimate American comfort food that will keep you coming back for more...and more.

What a range of delicious dishes!

When I think of mac and cheese it's certainly not the boxed stuff I ate as a child, but it's most often with cheddar or maybe Gruyère. But this book has really expanded my world. There are dishes made with smoked Gouda and ones made with Muenster and even goat cheese. There are elegant versions that are finished with truffle oil, and there are simple yet delicious ones made with creamy leeks and sautéed vegetables. There is also quite a range in the way the recipes are prepared. In addition to being baked in the oven or completed on top of the stove, the Skillet-Fried Cheddar Mac and Cheese finishes the dish in a hot pan so that the cheese browns like the crispy edges of a grilled cheese sandwich. This book will be used a lot in my kitchen when I'm having guests for dinner too. Kenn Speiser

We have close to 100 cookbooks, going back to ones we got from our mothers dating from the '50s and '60s, plus one dedicated macaroni and cheese book we bought within the last couple years. This one is the one we go to when we're looking for great comfort food. It'll definitely get a lot of use in this household.

If you like comfort food you have come to the right place.

Hard to get bored flipping through these recipes, this is way past the blue box and some Velveeta =)

As cookbooks go, it is not a stunning piece of design but it is functional and tells you what you need to know. I appreciate that the recipes are not unnecessarily complex. We are talking mac cheese so it shouldn't be...

Giving it a 4 only because I don't want to communicate that this is an absolute must have. Here's the real key - IMO you have to like to play with upscale ingredients to enjoy it,

Not the healthiest recipes but lots of fun and a great treat. It's turned out to be a fantastic way to spend time with my two children. We first spent time ranking recipes and now we are working through our favorites one by one. Nice way to get kids to learn basics of cooking.

I generally love mac and cheese, but always look for ways to add ingredients. This has historically meant dumping frozen peas into a pot of Annie's, so this book is really going to revolutionize my cooking. I have so far tried "Big Kid Mac with Spinach, Caramelized Onions, and Truffle Oil." I made it for a potluck (attended by people much foodie-er than myself); it was instantly devoured, and everyone raved. The dish was flavorful but subtle, so much so that it could be (and was) enjoyed by discerning grown-ups as well as my 2-year old. It is in addition a beautiful and easy to use cookbook, with general information about pastas and cheeses, and lovely photography. I am not really a cookbook person, since I get most of my ideas and recipes off the internet, but I am thrilled to have this book and plan to use it often.

Maybe not, but certainly a decent reference book for the shelf. I gave a copy to my 30-something son and my 40-something daughter with twin sons. The reasons are obvious for both. They liked it.

I was given a hard copy by a friend for my birthday and all the recipes have been such a hit at our dinner and a movie night that I got it on Kindle so I would have it when I am visiting my family as they have asked me to make recipes out of there. As my friend who gave me the book has stated, it was the gift that keeps on giving. I haven't made EVERY recipe yet, but I would say that I have made almost half of them. The first time I make a recipe I make it just like the book says (very rare for me but my husband and friends are telling me I need to reproduce what I make) and everyone turned out perfect. I have a large collection of cooking books and hate it when you follow the recipe and it doesn't turn out or you get half way through the recipe and discover they left out something.
