Antonio Romano shares his recipe for the ultimate comfort food dish: macaroni and cheese. He chose the popular dish, not only because of its history and global notoriety, but also because he feels it has lost some of its personality in recent years.
Romano wants to give some value back to the dish, taking care and pride in selecting quality ingredients, like the all-important Italian cheeses he's chosen to pump up the flavour. Overall, it's a departure from the all-too-familiar bland and commercialised mac 'n' cheese ready meal.
The chef asks us to stop and think for a second, and re-evaluate our relationship with readily available junk food. He encourages us to dedicate a moment or two to eating healthily: "30 seconds of your time to remember to make eco-sustainable choices."
