AMAZING RACEcream Coming Soon

Last season on The Amazing Race on CBS, two UW Food Science grad students took home first-place! Maya Warren and Amy DeJong work right here in Babcock Hall, so we'd like to congratulate them on their huge accomplishment with a new, celebratory ice cream flavor: AMAZING RACEcream! Thank you to everyone who submitted name ideas, especially Chris Thomas of the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, whose suggestion was chosen. Stay tuned for when it'll hit the Babcock Dairy dipping cabinets, and give these #SweetScientists a pat on the back next time you see them!

A Classic: Mac and Cheese

With the weather getting a bit cooler and drizzly, why not make this classic using Babcock's finest cheeses? INGREDIENTS: 250g/9oz macaroni 40g/1½oz butter 40g/1½ plain flour 600ml/1pint 1½fl oz milk 250g/9oz grated cheddar 50g/2oz grated parmesan (or any alternative) METHOD: Cook the macaroni in a large saucepan of boiling salted water for 8-10 minutes; drain well and set aside. Melt the butter over a medium heat in a saucepan slightly larger than that used for the macaroni. Add the flour and stir to form a roux, cooking for a few minutes. Gradually whisk in the milk, a little at a time. Cook for 10-15 minutes to a thickened and smooth sauce. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to hot. Remove the sauce from the hob, add 175g/6oz of the cheese and stir until the cheese is well combined and melted. Add the macaroni to the sauce and mix well. Transfer to a deep suitably-sized ovenproof dish. Sprinkle over the remaining cheddar and the parmesan and place the dish under the hot grill. Cook until the cheese is browned and bubbling. Serve straightaway. Credit goes to BBC Food. Click here!
