This recipe by Team Jane Spice (a.k.a. Ursula Ayrout and Leila Nuri) was a crowd favorite at SF Food Wars’ 2009 Mac Battle Royale with Cheese. Congratulations!
Vadouvan is an incredibly fragrant Indian spice blend. Vadouvan elevates everyday dishes and adds indescribable flavor.
What I love most about this recipe, is how we combined a staple dish like mac and cheese with an exotic and unknown spice blend. East meets West. And, even though most people wouldn’t know vadouvan by name, the dish had universal appeal at the mac and cheese competition.
