2009 Best Of Rhode Island (Best Macaroni & Cheese)
Just got word that we (Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro) just won the 2009 Best Of Rhode Island, Best Macaroni & Cheese! I know....I thought the same thing, we are located in MA not RI?! But award winning none the less. Thanks for the accolade Rhode Island!
If you haven't been to Tastings and tried our mac your missing out. Something so simple has become one of our most popular items. I still remember how much time we put into developing a recipe much more complicated than it needed to be. The final recipe......simple, so damn simple. We use the best ingredients we can find and call it a day. The end result......
