Heston Blumenthal: "If you want a real centerpiece, cook the mac and cheese in the hollowed-out rind of a cheese – it adds to the overall cheesiness and looks great. But if you can’t buy the whole cheese, I have included instructions for cooking it traditionally. If you can’t get hold of these specific British cheeses, you can substitute them for a good quality cheddar."
½ tsp salt
15ml truffle oil
300ml dry white wine
300ml brown chicken stock, infused for 20 minutes with Berkswell cheese rind, keep warm
80g Spenwood cheese, finely grated
80g soft cream cheese
15g goat’s cheese, diced
Berkswell cheese, for gratinating
PreparationPreheat the grill. Place 400ml of water, the pasta and the salt in a pan over medium-high heat. Cook until the pasta is done and all of the water has disappeared. Toss the pasta with the truffle oil.
In a small saucepan, reduce the white wine over a high heat to 30ml. Add the warm chicken stock to the reduced wine. Mix the grated cheese with the cornflour and add to the pan. Stir until the cheese has been incorporated into the sauce, then add the pasta.
Cook over a medium heat until the pasta is warmed through, then stir in the cream cheese. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
Place in a hollowed-out cheese rind, sprinkle with diced goat’s cheese and add more macaroni on top. Alternatively, half fill an ovenproof baking dish with the pasta, sprinkle with diced goat’s cheese and add the remaining macaroni on top.
Sprinkle some more cheese on top and place under the grill to melt and gratinate the cheese. Serve immediately.

Over crowding the deep fryer
Do not over crowd your deep fryer. The fried food must have bubbling hot oil all the way around it for it to cook evenly and quickly. If you put too many ingredients in the deep fryer at once it will reduce the temperature of the oil resulting in a soggy mess.
