Kate Mantilini

October 12, 2004

Kate Mantilini’s macaroni & cheese is the best I have ever, ever had. Better than the mac they serve up at North, better than the Hollywood 101 Café, better than Fred 62, better than my own recipe that’s garnered a lot of praise in my circle of friends.

The cheese is creamy, the bread crumb crust is crisp and the noodles soak both up just perfectly. Best of all: I didn’t feel like passing out in a food coma after eating it. It was just right.

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
