“Our menu changes all the time based on ingredients that are available from local farmers, but our mac is the one constant. So many people love it that we keep it on. When we started we had more of a meat-and-three-type menu, and over the past four years we’ve evolved from that. We do a lot of curing and fermenting, and we make all our own bread and pastries. I learned how to make charcuterie, and went to Italy to learn some cooking there, but the menu is rooted in Appalachian cooking and I try to stay true to that.” Obie Ferguson, Co-Owner/ChefFour-Cheese Macaroni Au Gratin Wisteria Southern Gastropub, MorgantonStart to finish: 30 minutesServes: 43 cups heavy creamÂ½ pound macaroni, cooked al dente 1 cup shredded fontina Â½ cup shredded Parmigiano Reggiano 4 slices American cheese 3 cups shredded Cabot extra-sharp white cheddar Â½ cup leftover cornbread crumbs (or bread crumbs)Set an oven rack about 4 inches from the broiler, and preheat broiler.
