Mac and Cheese… just the name makes me want to drool. This has been a recipe we have wanted to create for quite a while and we are excited to finally bring it to you without a single additive in sight – NO Annatto, NO artificial colours and NO MSG!

It is easy to make and a true family favourite, so give it a go and let us know what you think.

We would absolutely love you to leave us a comment below and let everyone know what you think. It’s comments like this that make our day and help us improve a recipe if we need to. We look forward to reading what you think!
