A Huge Mac & Cheese Festival Is Coming To Montreal

A city-wide celebration of the ultimate cheesy, comforting dish.
A Huge Mac & Cheese Festival Is Coming To Montreal

I'm going to be honest with you, friends: for me, the ultimate comfort food will always be mac and cheese. I don't know why. Is it because I'm obsessed with cheese? Probably.

But it's actually probably just because mac and cheese is as close as you can get to actual magic on earth. Seriously.

It's cheesy, delicious, there are about 7,000 different possible ways to eat it. Plus, true sidenote - it's literally impossible to be sad while eating mac and cheese. (There's also a Friends reference somewhere here. I just know it.)

Which is why Montreal's Mac N Cheese Week is such an awesome time of the year.
