Teaching An ode to mac and cheese, the poster child for processed food

An ode to mac and cheese, the poster child for processed food

The cheap, boxed meal has long been a poster child for processed food. Some might dismiss it as stuff for kids, but a lot of adults secretly love it. As I tell my own students, we love to make fun of processed foods. We usually do this while our mouths are full of it. It’s also played an important part in kitchen science, wars, and women’s liberation.
