Did you catch the episode of “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” where Kid Rock escorted Guy Fieri to some of his favorite restaurants in the Detroit area? If so, you probably recall the mac & cheese made at the Clarkston Union restaurant. The restaurant is known for their mac & cheese, so much so that, according to Kid Rock, they “almost had some gangster activity goin’ on” when the recipe was stolen!
Being a suburban Detroiter, we decided to venture out to try some for ourselves. Alas, it seems there are several Detroit-area “Triple D” fans who had the same idea: http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/dpp/news/local/customers-flock-to-clarkston-eateries-following-food-network-showcase-20111214
Instead of enduring the long wait at the restaurant, I decided to replay the episode and make my own rendition based on the description provided during the show. I’m not entirely sure how it compares to the original, but it is quite good nonetheless. Enjoy!
