For every issue of Macworld , I have to write a “From the Editors' Desk” column. But for the July issue of Macworld , I also had to cook something.
Many of us at Macworld are fans of Alton Brown, host of the funny and educational Good Eats on TV’s Food Network. (He also hosted the recent Iron Chef revival show.) But AB is also a fan of Apple and the Mac. So when I mentioned to him in January that we were trying to do a yearlong celebration of the Mac, he offered to whip up a brand-new recipe incorporating apples and “mac”—macaroni, that is.
When AB’s recipe arrived, I set about making it. On my first try I failed. The second time I got it right.
So if you decide to make this dish you could use a few tips. I've posted them here. Want to go straight to the recipe? Download the PDF or even download a file version you can import into Computer Cuisine or Cookware.
And check out Good Eats if you get Food Network. It’s a really fun, smart show. In fact, I’d say it’s the Mac of cooking shows. And that's high praise, coming from me.
