    Default Mac and Cheese - seen on TV last night

    We were watching one of the food channels last night, a show in which
    cooks talk about their favorite dishes, and this one was, I think,
    supposed to be French. They had a recipe on for macaroni and cheese and
    we only caught the last few minutes of it - included lots of gruyere
    cheese and bacon, the latter apparently smoked at the restaurant in
    question. It ended by being baked in a pizza oven.

    I'd like to try my hand at this - if anyone has a link to that or
    otherwise has a similarly yummy sounding mac and cheese, I'm all ears.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, I'm not much of a TV watcher. I know it was the same channel
    that Good Eats is on - I looked that up and that's Food Network. I
    don't know the name of the show - let's see if I can find that by
    looking at their schedule - no, struck out. I will ask my wife - she
    says it's called Best Thing I Ever Ate.

    I tried searching their site - can't find a way to search for both
    macaroni and cheese and restrict it to that one show. My search doesn't
    find it. The chef was female.

    Sorry, that's what I know.

    Steve,

    Might it be the Food TV channel show "The Best Thing I Ever Ate."

    The food TV hosts recount some of their restaurant favorites to be had.

    Food TV page: http://alturl.com/4azwz

    A "French Favorites" episode aired 7/25/2011 (yesterday) at 10:00pm.

    I didn't see a recipe evident on the website. Maybe forthcoming.

    Best,

    Andy

    If the show was "The Best Thing I Ever Ate", it would be the "Cheesy"
    episode, so the restaurant was Cafe des Artistes (the program guide
    says it was Fried Chicken last night). Try this recipe.
    http://www.latimes.com/features/food...,5874119.story
    It doesn't fit what you described, but that's the mac & cheese recipe
    they've given to a newspaper to publish. Change Swiss to Gruyere,
    prosciutto to bacon... and take it from there. Good Luck!

    It was your basic mac and cheese. White sauce with some nutmeg,
    gruyere, pasta and lardon (sp?) Served overflowing and burned on to
    the sides of the serving dish and the platter underneath.

    You snipped the original description, which was this:

    ***
    We were watching one of the food channels last night, a show in which
    cooks talk about their favorite dishes, and this one was, I think,
    supposed to be French. They had a recipe on for macaroni and cheese and
    we only caught the last few minutes of it - included lots of gruyere
    cheese and bacon, the latter apparently smoked at the restaurant in
    question. It ended by being baked in a pizza oven.
    ***

    Here's the description of the episode:

    ***
    Bon Apetit! We take a Tour de America for ooey gooey cheesy Raclette,
    velvety fig laced Foie Gras, and a delicious caramelized cake made with
    crepes and cream! These are just a few of the French dishes Alton Brown,
    Claire Robinson, Ming Tsai and others say are magnifique!
    ***

    I see "French," chef's "favorite dishes" and that the dishes
    mentioned were "just a few" of the dishes on the show. I see
    that it was on "last night." If it's not the show then the OP
    can check for himself.

    Here is what I call basic macaroni and cheese...

    Boil macaroni, pour into colander to drain. Put the pot back onto the
    stove and add a little milk and some shredded Velveeta... stirring until
    it is gooey. Add salt, pepper... and the still-hot macaroni. Mix,
    serve and eat.....

    Or if you want to get fancy, make the cheese goop a little thinner then
    pour the whole mess into a baking dish, put some shredded cheese on top
    and bake for a while.

    And if you REALLY want to get fancy, before you bake it, add some sliced
    hot dogs.

    There are hundreds of thousands of kids back in the 50's and 60's whose
    families received government food... and this was a favorite way to use
    it. It wasn't fancy, and it wasn't the healthiest meal in the world...
    but it filled a lot of bellies that otherwise might have gone to bed empty.

    The show I saw has restaurant recipes - this looks delicious and quite
    similar, but it looks like it's from a different show.

    Yes - I think that's the problem, it's not on their web site. I was
    hoping it would be. I'll have to tape the re-air.

    Yeah. Read it. Show me where it sez macaroni, gruyere, or bacaon.
    Check the recipes/videos. Show me one that even mentions mac/cheese.

    But you don't see mac/cheese.

    > If it's not the show then the OP can check for himself.


    Which is why I included a link to all Food Network's currently posted
    mac/cheese recipes and various possibilities, not just a pointless
    arguement.

    It says JUST A FEW OF THE DISHES.
