November 19, 2010
JUST IN: OPRAH NAMES BEECHER’S MAC AND CHEESE ONE OF HER ULTIMATE FAVORITE THINGS FOR 2010!! CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE AT BEECHERS…
Rolling out the début of the Hawthorne Fred Meyer’s “The Chef and The Cheesemonger” Series® will be Beecher’s Handmade Cheese’s “World’s Best” Mac and Cheese sampling on Saturday, November 20, 2010 from 1pm to 5pm.
Currently, Hawthorne is the only store in the Fred Meyer chain with its own Chef, who is teaming with the Cheese Steward Lead to create samplings using recipes that incorporate specialty cheeses and other specialty products available at their store. The Chef will use (or create) recipes which will also be sampled. The main ingredients will be available for purchase along with a free copy of each recipe to make it easy to re-create at home.
First in the series, The Chef and The Cheesemonger are thrilled to announce that Kurt Beecher Dammeier of Beecher’s Handmade Cheese located at Pike’s Market in Seattle, has graciously provided use of his recipe, “World’s Best” Mac and Cheese, which has been featured on Martha Stewart’s television series. You can view the video of Kurt and Martha by clicking here.
The recipe, just in time for Thanksgiving, will make four servings featuring Beecher’s Flagship Cheddar, the primary cheese needed to make this to-die-for Mac and Cheese. (Flagship and the other cheeses used in the recipe will all be grated and available for purchase). The recipe can easily be doubled or tripled to accommodate any Thanksgiving gathering.
AND as an added bonus, Kurt is also providing signed copies of his 2007 Cookbook, Pure Flavor, which includes the “World’s Best” Mac n Cheese recipe and more than 100 other recipes that feature the unique bounty of the Pacific Northwest. Customers can enter a free drawing to win one of the cookbooks.
Future samplings are planned for 2011 and will be announced both here and on the Fred Meyer Facebook page.
