Lula’s Adult Mac ‘n Cheese
Cheddar comes from all over – mostly Britain, The United States, and Canada. It can be white or yellow (absolutely NO taste difference, remember?); the yellow comes from the dye of annatto seeds.
The process that makes cheddar is called, of all things…cheddaring. This simply means curds are cut into slabs, then stacked, then pressed. What makes cheddars taste different from each other are the cows (yes it’s a cow’s milk cheese), the land, and the feed.
If you want to make things that require melted cheddar, ranging from a grilled cheese to fondue etc., then using younger cheddar will get better results, as it contains more moisture. Lula’s for Lunch…and More! Catering uses everything from Medium Sharp (hard to find vs mild!) Cheddar to Extra Sharp Cheddar in a variety of goodies.
My PERSONAL favorite is Vermont Extra Sharp White Cheddar. What’s yours? Weigh in at www.lulasforlunch.com/blog !
