We all know about how great Rocky & Carlo's macaroni and cheese is in Chalmette. It's maybe the best in the area, the kind of dish people lined up around the block for when it reopened last year following a fire.
But forget about all that. Can we talk about cook Tommy Tommaseo's accent?
It's sublime. I can hardly understand it at parts, but it's a pitch-perfect Italian voice, like something out of a 1960s movie. "Mac-ah-rohn-a" and the "cheesah." "Spaghettay." "Buhtter." It's really hard to not to smile when listening to him speak.
As for the dish itself, what is there to say? It's creamy with that amazing crust on top. There's a ridonkulous amount of cheese smothered inside. Butter flowing on top. Definitely worth the trip down to Chalmette.
So check out the video below and see How It's Done:
