There's nothing more comforting than a bowl of mac 'n' cheese. The wholesome dish of cheese and macaroni has the power to fill us with nostalgic childhood memories with just one bite and happens to be one of the biggest obsessions and contributors of cheese consumption in America.

While there is nothing wrong with boxed instant mac 'n' cheese, there is something to be said about gourmet or grown-up macaroni and cheese, where a combination of complex flavors and ingredients elevates the simple dish to a separate stratosphere of taste and deliciousness.
