mac 'n' cheese

yesterday i was craving for mac 'n' cheese...

yep, it was one of these days where my stomach was desperately asking for some comfort food to go through the day. i looked in vain for restaurants nearby to accommodate my "urgent" desire (i also need to make a mental note of this gap in Zurich's culinary map.... it's not the only gap, but this is another huge topic...). as I had to improvise (a.k.a. cook something myself), i googled & ended up with not one, but three amazing recipes. have a look!

a. a killer mac 'n'cheese, as Jamie names it; Jamie needs no introduction, he is the one and only Jamie Oliver.

b. mac and cheese greek style by the not-just-handsome Greek chef Akis Petretzikis.

c. grown-up mac and cheese with truffle oil; i discovered this one at i am a food blog; the recipe is by Heston Blumenthal, the famous chef behind The Fat Duck, a 3-Michelin star restaurant and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal.

for more info (all the ingredients you need & a step-by-step execution of the recipe as found in its original source), just click on the recipe's name.
& if you consider yourself a "close-to-being-professional" chef, why don't you also try these interesting combinations that i found at den.bigleo.com.

i went for Jamie's recipe, as I had almost all the ingredients at home. however, i feel so bad for not taking some time to take a photo before devouring my dish...
enjoy cooking & bon appetit!
