I was lucky enough to spend the weekend in Martha’s Vineyard, in honor of my friend Nevette’s First Annual Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival. In addition to having an all-around lovely late-summer getaway, I also discovered what could be the best damn roadside food I’ve ever had: the truly sinful “mac bites” at The Bite in Menemsha. It’s a small shack that serves everything fried (clams, fish chips, etc), but this I have never experienced before: Fried macaroni and cheese! The four of us split one order of the gooey nuggets, perfect little mouthfuls of melted goodness. They are not the kind of thing one should indulge in very often, but man, I bet they would be a hit at party. I’ve been thinking about how it would be recreated at home: I’d probably start with some cold, day old macaroni and cheese, roll it into little balls, and then batter it up with an egg dip and some flour. But would a deep fryer be necessary? What do you think? Perhaps some things are better left a mystery! — Angela M.
