Orlando, Fla., August 28, 2014 – The award for the best Mac-n-Cheese goes to Hard Rock Cafe Orlando! At the inaugural O-Town MacDown benefiting Give Kids The World, Hard Rock Cafe Orlando was deemed Orlando’s Mac-n-Cheese Champion, winning judges’ pick for “Best of Restaurant” offering and the fan favorite “People’s Choice” award for its Brie and Fontina Mac & Cheese. Hard Rock Cafe Orlando’s decadent dish beat out entries from the 38 participating professional chefs, restaurants, home cooks and non-profit organizations. More than 1,700 were in attendance as an esteemed panel of judges with a variety of expertise, ranging from local media to culinary professionals, chose their favorite recipe.
Hard Rock Cafe Orlando is also giving fans the opportunity to sample the award-winning offering for a limited time! Beginning on Monday, September 1, 2014, guests will be able to enjoy O-Town Macaroni and Cheese developed exclusively for the Orlando cafe – featuring imported orecchiette pasta finished with a rich brie and fontina sauce, topped with creamy fontina, aged romano and fresh chives ($8.95).
For every order sold, Hard Rock will make a donation to Give Kids The World, a non-profit organization that provides weeklong cost-free vacations to families with children battling life-threatening illnesses.
