Mac & Cheese - the Perfect Pair
Thomas Jefferson was said to have encountered macaroni and cheese in France and in Italy, then began requesting that macaroni and Parmesan cheese be imported to America. By the mid-1880s, macaroni and cheese had become available nationally and the dish mac 'n cheese has since become one of America’s favorite comfort foods. Yardbird makes a Macaroni & Cheese with Torchio pasta, five artisanal cheeses, including (Parmesan, white cheddar, yellow cheddar, cream cheese, red Leicester cheese) breadcrumbs, and chives under a crispy herb crust. It’s comfort food at its best.

A French Affair
At the recently opened Café Breizh, Chef Pierre Gatel and Chef Jerome Marchand offers fresh baked breads, pastries, French-inspired sandwiches and other savory fare, including croque monsieur, Nicoise salad and chicken and Gouda cheese quiche. The apple turnover ties back to Brittany (Bretagne), France, where Gatel and Marchand are originally from, and because Brittany is known for its desserts and ciders made from apples. Inside the apple turnover is a mixture of Fuji apples, both fresh and compote. All natural ingredients, no additives or preservatives - simply delicious.
