Roughly 300 people attended the 2nd annual Cap City Mac Fest, hosted by Geaux Rouge Productions on February 9th in Perkins Rowe.
Tickets were $35, and every $10 from a ticket sold was donated to Baton Rouge General to help send pediatric burn victims to summer camp.
The event consisted of 15 local restaurants and even some personal chefs, who each put their own spin on the classic dish, mac n' cheese, in hopes of winning one of two competitions that day-- all while raising money for a good cause.
One of the competitions was People's Choice, where festival-goers dropped a bowtie pasta in a cup at the tent they thought had the best mac n' cheese, and the Judge's competition, where four culinary judges chose their favorite.
Reinhart provided each contestant with noodles and cheese, while TruBlue water donated water bottles that were sold, where part of the revenue made from that was donated as well.
The Big Cheezy ended up winning the People's Choice award while Chow Yum Phat won the Judge's Competition.
