‘‘Anyone who paves the way for me to have mac + cheese for breakfast understands my heart’s desires. Allison and Erin really know their way around a creamy sauce and amazing cheese combinations. These recipes are fun and majorly comforting—I’m so excited to add this book to my cookbook family.’’
-Joy Wilson, author of Joy the Baker Cookbook
‘‘I remember when Allison and Erin first came to me to ask for advice on opening their own restaurant. I knew they had what it takes: intelligence, natural grace, and sincere hospitality. The beauty of their food is the unexpected mac and cheese flavors that pop every time. They provide you with plenty of comfort at Homeroom, and now, their cookbook provides you with the ultimate comfort food!’’”
-Tanya Holland, chef/owner, Brown Sugar Kitchen
About the Author
ALLISON AREVALO started cooking pretty much when she was able to stand. Born into a food-loving Italian family in New York, she helped her great-grandmother cook massive meals for Sunday family dinners and learned the basics of cooking in that kitchen. Allison pursued a career as a marketing exec in NYC before deciding to follow her true passion in life: food. In 2008, Allison and her husband took a leap of faith: they quit their jobs and drove across the country to Oakland, CA, in hopes of one day opening a restaurant. Allison freelanced as a food writer and created the Local Lemons food blog, which showcased her original recipes. It received high accolades from Saveur.com, CNN, Serious Eats, and WSJ.com, among others. Her dream came true in 2010, the year she and Erin opened the doors to Homeroom.
ERIN WADE is a chef-turned-attorney-turned-chef-again. Erin’s love for cooking was sparked by her father’s homemade mac and cheese and her mother’s vast cookbook collection. While receiving her undergraduate degree at Princeton, Erin was a restaurant critic for the Daily Princetonian and apprenticed at night in the kitchen of a local French restaurant. Upon graduating, Erin worked as a line cook and in pastry at restaurants in New York before attending law school at Berkeley. After practicing law for a year, Erin came to her senses and decided to return to her love of cooking by opening Homeroom with Allison. She lives in Oakland with her husband, Uri, and her daughter, Ellie—her favorite cooking partners.

Disclaimer: My sincere thanks to Ten Speed Press and NetGalley for providing me with a complimentary e-book copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
My Thoughts: Macaroni and Cheese, good homemade mac'n'cheese and all its creamy, cheesy goodness, is so comforting that it can soothe my weary soul even on the bleakest of days. Add a crunchy Panko crumb topping and I'm in gastronomical heaven!
I'm not the only person in my house that is an avid mac and cheese addict. My kids and Brad enjoy diving into a bowl of gooey, cheesy goodness too. Typically, I use the same recipe to make my homemade mac and cheese. It's a good recipe and I've used it so much and for so long that I know it by heart. And that gets a little boring after awhile, if I'm being honest. So when I saw that Allison and Erin had written an entire cookbook about one of my favourite comfort foods I knew I had to give it a try. My beloved mac and cheese with a few twists? Count me in!
Allison and Erin know more than a thing or two about mac and cheese. They own a restaurant in Oakland, California which is dedicated to their love of the curved noodle and fromage. We're not talking about only serving the standard cheesy sauce over macaroni noodles. Oh no, my friends. These two gals offer up 10 different kinds of mac and cheese every day and dress up my favourite comfort food with simple, yet delicious, add-ins.
I will admit that sometimes reading a cookbook is about as riveting as reading an encyclopedia. They can be a little dry and lacking in personality but I'm happy to report that this is not the case with The Mac + Cheese Cookbook.Read more ›
