The first annual Mac & Cheese Fest will be held on Saturday, October 4 at the UIC Forum from noon to 3 p.m. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana.

“Mac & Cheese Fest is a celebration of the dish! With roots dating back to the 14th century, recipes that span continents to entice aficionados galore, the Festival is a time to explore every variety of this beloved food,” says Cece Gonzales, President of Cece & Melinda of Raymi Productions. The event will feature a mind-blowing variety of macaroni and cheese entrees, appetizers and sides served with craft beers, wine and soft drinks.

Mac & Cheese Fest will feature approximately 50 Chicago chefs featuring their versions of Mac and Cheese, inspired from cultures, family traditions and their restaurant’s menu. Chefs will be asked to use any kind of pasta with any type of cheese as the primary ingredients. One lucky chef, recognized by attendees and a panel of foodies, will take home “The Golden Noodle.”
