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.
