The annual “Mac & Cheese Bake-Off” is quickly approaching and people from across Northern Michigan and the state are flocking to the Old Mission Peninsula to see who takes home this year’s Golden Noodle on November 30.

Alaina Korreck with the Old Mission Peninsula Wine Trail says, “This is our biggest and probably most exciting event that we put on throughout the year on the Old Mission Peninsula Wine Trail.”

Ten member wineries select a restaurant partner from Traverse City and they create a Mac and Cheese/wine pairing competing for the title of “Cheesiest”, “Best Pairing” or “Overall Favorite”.

As you can imagine, this is a popular event. So popular, tickets were sold out in 23 minutes! However, you don’t have to wait until next year. The Old Mission Peninsula Wine Trail is also offering their “Winter Warm Up” in January. “It’s a very similar concept where we have food and wine pairings at all 10 of our member wineries,” explains Korreck.
