Foodie Explorers and McIntosh of Strathmore return to the Southside Fringe with Pastaval - Mac and Cheese Festival!

McIntosh Pastaval

About McIntosh Pastaval

Foodie Explorers have again partnered with McIntosh of Strathmore to bring back the Mac and Cheese Festival as part of the Southside Fringe.

Last year’s winner, The Bungo, are rolling up their sleeves and ready for the challenge of keeping their trophy for The Best Mac ‘n’ Cheese.

We have two new competitors hoping to win the coveted McIntosh Pastaval trophy this year and we need the publics’ help to pick the best mac and cheese in the Southside this year.

The day will begin with participants picking up their Mac and Cheese appreciation pack from the McIntosh Pastaval base at The Butterfly and The Pig South on Kilmarnock Road in Shawlands. Then, using their provided map, attendees visit the participating venues tasting some delicious mac and cheese and maybe getting a photo with Mr Macaroni!

Scorecards are provided so that notes can be made on your true feelings about each mac and cheese. Return the scorecards at the end of your journey through the McIntosh Pastaval HQ to enter a prize draw for delights such as a meal at Hickory Steakhouse or a McIntosh hamper filled with goodies.

The winning venue will be presented with a suitably cheesy trophy to proudly display that they have been awarded the accolade of the best mac and cheese of McIntosh Pastaval 2018. Previous years’ winners were: The Bungo (2017), The Butterfly and The Pig South (2015) and The Waverley Tea Rooms (2014).

Who will win this year?

Tickets are £10 per person and are available to buy via www.foodieexplorers.co.uk from Friday 13th April 2018. You’ll need to buy a ticket beforehand to take part.

Note that all venues have confirmed that they will have vegetarian friendly mac ‘n’ cheese but sadly we can’t accommodate vegans.

All venues are dog-friendly too so feel free to take your pooch with you.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for McIntosh Pastaval are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
