Think of this as haute mac & cheese, thanks to truffle oil, Tillamook Cheese and macaroni’s more elegant cousin, cavatappi. Thick, creamy and rich. Go ahead, let those tastebuds put on airs.

"Who doesn’t love mac & cheese?! This takes the classic to a whole new level with truffle oil! I debuted this dish on a New Years Eve menu years ago and offer it whenever a special occasion presents itself." - Hosea Rosenberg of Blackbelly Catering
