Simple Dishes from Avant Garde Chefs
These effortless dishes include olives stuffed with almonds, anchovies, and peppers and a classic mac and cheese.
You would expect Grant Achatz's macaroni and cheese to have some chef tricks, but it doesn't. He uses a white sauce, elbow macaroni and cheddar cheese, just like the rest of us. His personal touch: a tablespoon of paprika (to enhance the color of the sauce) and lots of smoky, crisp bacon bits.
