Mac & Cheese: Kraft vs. Ile de France Cheese

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An article on Kraft’s Mac & Cheese was recently published in ABCNEWS that focused on an American mom’s concern with the iconic brand’s inclusion of an additive that “has been associated with hyperactivity in children, allergies, migraine and maybe cancer”. The additive in question is yellow dye. Yellow dye generally adds no flavor to the food but affects the coloring. According to the article, the Mac and Cheese produced by Kraft in the UK does not use additives due to stricter regulations, yet tastes the same as the American version; so why add this ingredient in the first place?

For an authentic and better tasting Mac and Cheese, we suggest using gourmet cheeses like Ile de France Brie or Ile de France Goat Cheese in order to get more flavors out of the creamy popular dish. Check out our rich & flavorful Mac and Cheese recipes using the finest French cheeses with no additives used.

Pumpkin Mac and Cheese

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

 

Remembering that pumpkin is something we tend to associate with fall, we decided to delve more into that and found an awesome Pumpkin Mac and Cheese recipe on Detroit Free Press! From toddlers to senior adults, everyone loves some good Mac & Cheese; though sometimes, standard macaroni and cheese recipes can be a bit bland.

This Pumpkin Mac & Cheese recipe uses Gouda to give it a “mild, nutty” flavor but we think it’s even better with our Camembert! A creamy and soft-textured cheese, the versatile fromage can be enjoyed in a wide variety of dishes. Here are some tips and ideas on Macaroni & Cheese!
