Bambi Daniels' Mac & Cheese is a staple of southern/soul comfort food. Her recipe has been passed down for generations, each generation adding their own twist. Bambi’s personal twist is smoked gouda and smoked paprika. The dish highlights her southern roots and shows gratitude to her elders for what they taught her.
John’s recipe leaves room for adjustments based on whatever vegetables are in season in your area. For instance, if you don’t have African eggplant or cabbage, feel free to substitute with what you have on hand. Serves 8 to 12 people.
