Kitschy or Gourmet?

Posted Apr 09 2013 10:07pm

Truffle Mustard Mac and Cheese

This is a mix and match recipe. It’s an odd couple strangely complementing each other. The taste is bewilderingly sensual. It includes an everyday condiment commonly used as a dipping sauce for school kids’ fries mixed with the world’s most sought after ingredient, in which only a pig’s nose will find. It’s a mac and cheese recipe made with wickedly sharp white cheddar cheese bechamel sauce and FungusAmongUs’ truffle mustard

Of course, truffles in mac and cheese is not a new dish–people swoon over the combination (A brief mention of truffles in any recipe makes everyone excited). Then there’s the idea of adding mustard to mac and cheese which is quite common. After conducting an internet search for “mustard and cheddar cheese recipes,” the results yielded infinite amounts of kitschy-type of recipes. I figured, why not add FungusAmongUs’ Truffle Mustard to a creamy cheddar cheese bechamel sauce. All those flavors incredibly harmonized into a decadently delicious pasta dish.

As mentioned in a previous recipe using FungusAmongUs Chanterelle mushrooms in Rustic Kale and Chanterelle Pie with Parmesan Cream Sauce , I had a difficult time developing a recipe using truffles because of fear of making a mistake. The final decision resulted in truffle mustard being one of my choices. Once the fear of making a mistake was eliminated, developing a recipe became an easier process.
