Incredible Mac & Cheese | Food Busker | #MyFoodMemories | AD


Hi guys! So me and Hotpoint asked you to send in your most incredible food memories. Daisy sent in her food memory of her Nan’s most incredible macaroni cheese. Fantastic Daisy! So we’re gonna recreate that now for all of you guys to see and enjoy. By handing over to the one and only John Quilter, The Food Busker. Thanks, Jamie! I can’t wait to recreate Daisy’s dish from her nan. If you want to learn more about these amazing food stories and have the opportunity to win Hotpoint kit then click through to the food memories hub and check them out. But for now let’s talk about Daisy. Her job was a corporal in the army and she fixed the electrics in tanks. How cool is that? Whenever she was coming home she was always looking forward to her nan’s macaroni and cheese. We’ve spoken to Daisy’s nan, Betty, and she’s given us this closely guarded family recipe. It’s got all the usual cheesy gooey loveliness. It’s got a few twists in there as well. Tomatoes, mushrooms, and weirdly, it’s served with chipolata. Yeah I know right. Daisy’s nan used mushrooms in a mac and cheese and I totally get that. Mushrooms and cheese goes so well together. I’m using portobello mushrooms. Slice these up and turn on my Hotpoint induction hob. We want a tablespoon of olive oil into the pan. Get your mushrooms in. Nan used to put tinned tomatoes in, but I’m gonna use sun-dried tomatoes, Daisy, trust me you’re gonna love this. Let’s get some thyme in there. Make sure everything’s glistening and cooked down. Then set it aside. I like to give my mac and cheese a really crispy top. Betty didn’t do this, but it all starts with bacon. Cut your bacon into thin strips and cook it in the same pan for three to four minutes. And then I’m gonna put a tablespoon of the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes in the pan. Add our breadcrumbs in to absorb all those flavours. Let’s get some parsley in there. Get it nice and crispy and set that aside. If you’re like me the key to a great mac and cheese is that creamy, cheesy, stringy, lovely sauce, and according to Daisy, Nan’s didn’t disappoint. So let’s make the cheese sauce. In a large pan on a medium heat melt 80g of unsalted butter. Add in 80g of plain flour to make the roux. You want to gently cook it and not let it catch or burn. Add a litre of milk, gradually stirring continuously so you don’t get any lumps. When I make mac and cheese I use three cheeses. Emmental, gruyere and cheddar. Let’s get 50g of each into the sauce. Cheddar gives it a real creamy depth, that Emmental gives it that beautiful stringiness and then the gruyere is intense. Delicious. Now we’re going to add a little bit of pepper in there and then we’re gonna get the water on to cook the pasta. Now what’s great about Hotpoint’s induction it will heat that water up super fast. Lightly season with salt and put 300g of macaroni pasta into the water. I’m only gonna cook it for four minutes to get it nice and al dente because then it’s going in the oven and that will finish off the cooking process. Let’s strain it. Let’s incorporate the pasta into the sauce. Get the mixture in to our baking tray. We’re only doing half because we’ve now got our layer of tomato and mushroom and then another layer, the rest of the macaroni cheese on. Then the final layer of tomato and mushrooms. It works so well And then our breadcrumb mixture on the top. Now let’s get this beauty in my Hotpoint oven. It’s so important to have a good oven so you get that even flow so this work of art turns out bubbly and crunchy and delicious. Oh my goodness. Oh it’s gonna be so good. And don’t forget, it’s served with chipolatas! Look at it. All makes sense. Cheesy, gooey loveliness. The tomato and the mushroom. Oh like a really meaty layer actually, and then you’ve got the really crunchy breadcrumbs and then, Betty was right, that chipolata just makes so much sense. Daisy, I hope you like my take on your Nan’s classic. It’s delicious. Now, to help Daisy cook it, Hotpoint have given her an oven, and if you want to get a whole raft of amazing Hotpoint kit then click on the link.

  1. Let's recreate this food memory – by changing every 3rd step… seriously what's the point when you're constantly saying "x didn't do this but you're gonna love it" when the entire series is around recreating dishes?
    Also despite the fact that I'm renting my apartment and can't rip the appliances out to buy hotpoint ones – being aggressively sold products like this doesn't look good, genuine or make the products appealing in anyway, shape or form.

  2. Oh man, these sponsored videos are so annoying. Can he at least stop saying "Hot Point" every 10 seconds. The sponsor's name is already at the top of the frame. You don't have to crush the viewer with it.

  3. I answered 100% correct for the hot point kitchen, 180 degree. But the answer was โ€œwrongโ€œ. I bet they did this just to scam my e mail

  4. ๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  5. Really shitty take on the good memories idea. Take their memory and change it completely and serve. I hope her ban likes the taste of your spit in here face lads.

  6. but you didnt do her recipe. love the idea of the segment but you didnt stay true to it. you shouldnt adapt the recipes, surely thats the whole point.

  7. would be a great opportunity to do some grannies african, caribbean and italian stuff but changing the recipe defeats the whole point of the video

  8. He is the only chef I've ever seen that actually put only one table spoon olive oil in when they say one table spoon olive oil.

  9. This looks more than delicious! And I don't mind the ads like others do. I mean, who doesn't like to have a sponsorship? Cmon guys

  10. I enjoy seeing other chefs do their thing on Jaimeโ€™s channel โ€” but I do agree with the other comments on here that I miss those days when I see Jaime or the others cooking without any advertising, whether Hotpoint or any of his books or Tefal or whatever. I understand that they have to make their living, but I also wish it would still be interspersed with good old solid cooking and nothing else. That way I focus on the food, on how it is done, rather than being told about the equipment.

  11. Basically

    1. Not at all the original family recipe
    2. Jamie cashing Hotpoint sponsorship but cba to make the actual vid.

    So both basic assumptions you're click baiting on totally undermined. Poor bloody effort.

  12. Hi folks. Is this recipe written anywhere so I can print it out? I've clicked on the links above and cannot find it for the life of me.

  13. I stopped the video. It used tinned Tomatoes and had no bacon in the original recipe. It's little things like that which make a meal special. Sometimes tinned tomatoes ARE better than sun dried tomatoes. By all means make your own version of it, but don't call the show "food memories" and then make a totally different dish to that of the person you're doing the tribute to. I'm sure both meals are delicious, but it's the principle which matters…

  14. Damn! I wish I could do it, I don't have HOTPOINT oven so I'll have to live only with watching this video of M&C baked in the HOTPOINT oven. I guess I should take part in the competition so I can get a chance at winning a HOTPOINT oven so then I'll be able to cook M&C in my new HOTPOINT oven if I get the HOTPOINT oven.

  15. I have a recipe but i don't follow it even though it's what the show is about … We don't want your recipe we want the original 1 !!

  16. "I'm gonna change almost everything, but she'll love it!" No, she won't. It's a different recipe. It's not a food memory.

  17. I remember my dad heating a can of baked beans on the electric radiator. Ahhh the memorys, recipe secrets are: remove the label of the can before heating, and don't let it get to hot coz those suckers blow up.

  18. I like the videos on this channel but this advertising is super annoying. Hotpoint here hotpoint there. Annoying. In every single video.

  19. I made this one yesterday for me and my gf. It went very well, the mushrooms and dried tomatoes with thyme have an amazing flavour to them. I couldn't get breadcrumbs and didn't have a blender on hand to make some, so I just cubed some old bread instead. It was amazing, the added crunch from the toasted bread was amazing against the creamy mac n cheese. Thanks for the recipe!

  20. Nothing wrong with a sausage served with Mac 'n' cheese. Nothing new either.

    Sent from my Hotpoint phone
