It’s the return of the Charleston MAC OFF! The event, now in its 5th year, features multiple Holy City restaurants battling it out for the title of Best Macaroni & Cheese! The 2014 MAC OFF will be held at The Grove at Patriots Point on Saturday, October 25th from 2 pm until 7 pm.
Besides all the yummy mac & cheese, there will also be live music, local vendors, a photo booth, a kid’s area, a mac & cheese cooking demo by Southern Season, a mac & cheese-eating contest, and more. Live music will be provided by Jared Blake from The Voice and local band Adalya. Plus, one local resident’s dish will be entered into the competition. If you would like to participate, click here.
Over 20 local restaurants and chefs are competing this year. Participants include Bohemian Bull, Graze, Twenty Six Devine, Duvall Catering, Cherrywood BBQ & Ale House, and Crave Kitchen and Cocktails, a four-time MAC OFF winner and the defending champion.
Attendees will have the chance to try all of the mac & cheese varieties and vote for their favorite. A panel of celebrity judges will also choose their favorite for the Critic’s Choice Award. In total, three awards will be given out – the aforementioned People’s Choice and Critic’s Choice awards, and Best Mac and Cheese: Using a Local Ingredient.
Last year’s winners were:
- Critics’ Choice Best Mac and Cheese: Mosaic
- People’s Choice Best Mac and Cheese: Crave
- Best Local Ingredient: New Moon Pizzeria (made with local pimento cheese)
Tickets are $10.00 and can be purchased online or at the door. Food, beverage, and mac & cheese tasting tickets are sold for $1 at the event. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Lowcountry Local First. For more information about the MAC OFF, visit the official webpage.
