Eight Lincoln City restaurants invite you to try their interpretations of the classic dish macaroni & cheese March 16-23 when Explore Lincoln City presents Macaroni & Seas Week.
“Our mac and cheese dish is made with a traditional béchamel sauce, combined with Monterey Jack and Cheddar to create a Mornay sauce,” Chef Etienne Saucier of Klementine’s Kitchen said. “We add elbow macaroni, top it with our potato chip parmesan crust, and then bake it until it’s crisp and bubbly. For many, mac and cheese is the embodiment of comfort food. It is a simple, classic dish that invites fond, nostalgic memories.”
“We are capping off Macaroni & Seas Week with a delicious demonstration class,” Culinary Center Manager Donna Riani said. “Chef Roy Baker from Autobahn 101 will join me on the demo stage and show our guests how to make his version of mac and cheese. It is a traditional German spätzle made with cheese, bacon and mushrooms. We’ll also have live music, wine, treats and other surprises to celebrate the week.”
A map of the eight participating locations and a demonstration video featuring Riani is available at MacaroniAndSeas.com.
