How many different kinds of macaroni and cheese can you eat in one day? The answer is around seven. At the 2011 Macaroni and Cheese Cook-Off, seven contestants faced off, and guests sampled cheesy bites of every single entry before the winners were determined. The thing with mac and cheese is, it’s never bad, so choosing the best was nearly impossible.
