Maine Lobster Mac and Cheese Recipe with Allagash Pairing
6 servingsOur friends from Allagash Brewing Company prepared this recipe and gave an expert advised beer pairing:“Maine lobster is a pretty versatile ingredient. In this recipe, the subtle flavor and texture of the lobster pairs really nicely with the savory bite of the cheese. On top of that, the citrus and spice character in Allagash White balances out the sharper notes of the cheese.”– Sean Ellsworth, Senior BrewerIngredients:1/2 quart heavy cream1 teaspoon dry mustard2 bay leaves2 cloves4 ounces roux (equal parts flour and butter, cooked together until lightly browned)2 cups shredded good quality cheddar cheese1 tablespoon sea salt2 teaspoons freshly cracked peppercorns1 pound cooked macaroni1 pound Maine Lobster meat, chopped
