@WholyCheesus - Check out Mac and #Cheese @Datz4Foodies on @foodspotting

I could go on with a bunch of blah blah blah and wax rhapsodic about the virtues of marrying pasta with melting dairy product.

But what is there to say about a giant, sticky bowl of Mac & Cheese at Datz restaurant in south Tampa that doesn’t speak for itself?

Well, you say, “Hey, that bowl of lovely goo just won Weekend Eats for Twitter friend @WholyCheesus.” And then you heap praise and congratulations.

The grand prize for this achievement in gustation:


Comfort Food Makeovers

In addition to entering the Weekend Eats Hall of Fame on Pinterest [link] A copy of the book “Comfort Food Makeovers” by the editors of America’s Test Kitchen.

The book is a guide to making home-style dishes less fattening and caloric.

Why anyone would do that to a bowl of Mac & Cheese, I have no idea. But the dish is on the cover, so that must mean something arterial is afoot.
