This trailer for Melt: The Art of Macaroni and Cheese (Little, Brown), by Stephanie Stiavetti and Garrett McCord, might make it hard to eat that austere salad you brought for lunch, unless your salad is a macaroni and cheese salad, of course. But wait, mac and cheese can be salad too? I can tell you already stopped listening! Let the book’s svelte author-chefs tell you what you’ve been missing if the blue box is your standby. (And, before you think you’ve been duped, the trailer and reviewer Barbara Jacobs assure Melt contains plenty of heavier, carbo-loading fare, too.)
Melt is featured in Brad Hooper’s Top 10 Food Books from the last 12 months–check out this year’s other top titles, as well all new reviews, and much more in the brand new October 1, 2014 issue (Spotlight on Food) and on Booklist Online.
