Probably the most inspired idea to come out of Team Sony at Dare so far in 2008 was the mac and cheese bake off; two titans of the macaroni world pitted themselves head to head in a bid to win the coveted title of Best Mac and Cheese Cook.

Carnivale’s brazen take on a nouveau cuisine macaroni asked those perennial questions of the judges – what is mac cheese? Her bold recipe, cooking macaroni without using even macaroni or a cheese sauce was well received and split the judges’ vote.

After long deliberations and third helpings, a single vote dictated that the smoky robustness of Carnivale was not enough to topple Holland’s simple and reassuring take on the classic.

Holland 1 Carnivale 0.
