“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. "
“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.”

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
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,
This book has several recipes, ranging from classic to more modern takes on everyone's favorite comfort food. It's definitely for the more adventurous chef. My boyfriend, who likes more classic recipes, thought many of these versions were a little too creative for his taste.
I would recommend this cookbook to everyone who enjoys macaroni and cheese, and isn't afraid of a little adventure!
