While scanning restaurant menus, I often find myself faced with a huge dilemma involving macaroni and cheese. Yes, you heard me. I often struggle with the preconceived notion that it's only for children. As an adult, I feel judged by society when eating macaroni and cheese in public. While dining with colleagues, I am expected to order a salad, chicken or a trendy tapas plate. Sometimes I find myself wanting to confess my love for macaroni and cheese by shouting it from the rooftops. Extreme, I know.  

You can imagine the sheer delight that I felt when I 53a0d2_fd383a56fca8802dbc0fd2249d1b5d5c.jpg_srz_310_270_75_22_0.50_1.20_0heard about the Paso Macaroni and Cheese Fest. A place where I can openly express my love for this amazing, cheesy little dish. This isn't your mom's Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, this is a gathering of Paso Robles' top chefs who will be serving up gourmet mac & cheese while competing for the Judge's Award and Peoples' Choice Award. As if that isn't enough, there will be over 20 wineries along with BarrelHouse Brew which is the ​exclusive brewery for the event. In addition, festival goers will enjoy live entertainment and vendor booths with olive oil, cheeses, almonds, gelato and more!

Paso's Gourmet Mac & Cheese Fest is taking place THIS weekend. Mac & cheese lovers can unite and openly discuss their love for this yummy dish. Hungry? Ready for the details?
