Macaroni and cheese photoExecutive Chef Chris Peterson cooks up the perfect fall comfort food and everyone’s favorite guilty pleasure: Macaroni and Cheese

INGREDIENTS 

1 ounce butter
1 ounce flour
1 cup milk

Preparation

In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Once melted, whisk in the flour until thoroughly incorporated. Keep cooking, stirring until mixture turns a golden brown. Add cold milk to the mixture, and bring it to a simmer. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir until mixture is nice and thick. Fold in a cup of cheddar cheese. If it gets too thick, thin it with a little milk. Gently toss with the cooked macaroni and top with the remaining four tablespoons of cheddar on each plate.
