Make lobster mac and cheese

Enjoy a grownup version of macaroni and cheese with a lobster twist! Mac and cheese is always good, but lobster adds something to it you never thought possible. A great side dish or perfect for a main meal. See how to make this delicious dish with this recipe.

Kate enjoyed a spectacular fondue in Medregen, a little town in the Alps. The Gruyere, Emmenthaler and Apenzel cheeses used in that fondue led to the creation of this dish. Big chunks of her home state's luscious lobster add incredible flavor and texture. It's a warm and creamy meal to soothe the soul.
