L.A.’s First Ever ‘Mac & Cheese Smackdown’ is Coming in December

Lobster, truffle, bacon…. the options are endless when it comes to mac & cheese, so why not put the comfort classic in the spotlight with it’s own featured food event?

This December that’s exactly what will happen, thanks to folks at Time Out Los Angeles.


The city of angels’ inaugural Mac & Cheese Smackdown arrives at the L.A. River Studios on Sunday, December 6, 2015.

Some of the best restaurants in the city will offer creative takes on this beloved cheesy classic to hungry guest through two hours of tastings, plus beer pairings.
