Watch ONLY with a Planet Eat subscription
This online cooking masterclass, exclusive to Planet Eat and presented by American Chef LC, is not just a masterclass on how to cook traditional, classic American food, but is also a celebration of the cuisine of the USA, its origins, storytelling abilities and the way it nourishes both body and mind. In this episode, Chef LC demonstrates how to make her classic American, creamy, baked macaroni and cheese, made extra special by using mature cheddar and parmesan cheese. You will learn how to make this easy, simple mac and cheese sauce from scratch, and to perfect this classic American comfort food so that you can make it at home whenever you feel like it. About LC: LC is a chef and pupil of food who believes every dish tells a story. Her curiosity about foods and its history led her to study and cook foods around the world. Before donning her chef’s coat with classical training in the USA, she initiated her culinary training at the “school of mom” learning to appreciate and understand diverse ingredients, as well as the symbolism of cooking with love. After her training and education, LC continued her passion, working in professional kitchens and learning from great chefs from around the world (including a Top Chef and Michelin starred chef). If she isn’t creating, she can be found in a kitchen, market, or garden somewhere in the world continuing to research foods and techniques to share with friends, family, and fellow food lovers.
