NEW ORLEANS-- In New Orleans it seems like we have a fest for everything. We even have one for America's favorite comfort food---Mac N Cheese!
The NOLA Mac N Cheese Fest is in its second year and News with a Twist Reporter Kenny Lopez gives us a tasty preview!
Kenny Lopez went to Little Gem Saloon where Owner & General Manager Nick Bazan is making a very special mac-n-cheese for this Saturday's festival.
His mac-n-cheese is just one of nearly 20 vendors that will be featured at this year's NOLA Mac N Cheese Fest. At this year's fest there will be nearly 40 different varieties of the popular dish.
"I think a good mac-n-cheese can take you back to your childhood and everyone has a grandmother or a mother who made a good bowl so this fest can take you back in time and give you that warm feeling," Jules Egran, Founder of NOLA Mac N Chese Fest said.
