Mac & cheese a la FarmJanuary 2nd, 2009 | Written by jfolkmann | Topic: Main
After visiting Farm, I had to recreate their mac and cheese. Comfort food like this shouldn’t stay a secret. If only I had some of the venison sausage I had with it in the restaurant. I think I’ve got the recipe pretty close, if anyone knows the exact ingredients please let me know.
Update: Oka is a Canadian cheese, named after a small village in Quebec. You can find more information here.
- Preparation time
- Cooking time
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon flour
- ½ cup breadcrumbs
- 2 tablespoons parmesan grated
- 2cups milk
- 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
- 250g Oka grated
- 280g old cheddar (3yr or older) grated
- Ground black pepper
- 500g fusilli or macaroni
Preheat oven to 400. Boil water and cook pasta. While pasta is cooking, melt butter in a saucepan and add flour to make a roux, then gradually whisk in the milk. Add mustard, oka, cheddar and pepper to taste.
Mix pasta and cheese sauce and pour into oven proof dish. Mix breadcrumbs and parmesan and sprinkle over the pasta mixture, bake in oven for 15 to 20 minutes (less time for a runnier sauce).
