In the last blog post about macaroni and cheese, I said that I would say something if I ever found organic macaroni and cheese from the box that didn’t taste like cardboard, and I did! It’s Back to Nature, Organic Macaroni and Cheese Dinner. It tastes great!
In addition, I think I cracked the code on photographing macaroni and cheese. It took three tries but here is the progression.
First try, macaroni and cheese from childhood. I waited too long to photograph the macaroni and cheese. Though the presentation is interesting, it masks the fact that the macaroni and cheese doesn’t really look appetizing.
Second try, organic macaroni and cheese from the box. The macaroni and cheese looks better but the presentation is weird. I think the problem is that I thought it tasted like cardboard so I had a hard time making the mac and cheese look good. It seemed dishonest to me.
Third try, awesome tasting organic macaroni and cheese from the box, using organic 1% milk.
I took this right after I made it. I think my love of this mac and cheese shows in this picture because I didn’t have a lot of styling but just focused on the macaroni and cheese.
That was a lot to say about organic macaroni and cheese but then I love macaroni and cheese! I’m so glad I did this experiment. Not only did I find a great tasting organic macaroni and cheese from the box but I became a better food photographer too.
