Dan's specializes in what they call "Mac Packs," which are 1.25-pound recyclable aluminum foil trays delivered frozen and ready to pop in the oven. Retailing online at $8.99 apiece or $30 for a four-pack sampler, these are not your run-of-the-mill Blue Box mac-and-cheeses — they're made with fresh high-quality ingredients. Dan's previously offered four varieties before inventing the new holiday special.
Since the holidays are already a time of indulgence, Dan's Gourmet Spot has rolled out a new winter treat. In fact, it's so new that it doesn't even have an official punny name yet. Stay tuned for the website to discover the official moniker, but it is available to order right away if you just have to have a tray of this amazing concoction of rotini pasta, Dubliner White Cheddar bechamel cheese sauce, caramelized red, green and poblano peppers, and a Christmas spice blend. If you think of a name for it, email Dan at email@example.com and the author of the winning name will receive a free sampler pack.
If you are interested in giving Mac Packs to your friends during the holidays, Stephenson and Jones are actually making deliveries anywhere in Davidson and Williamson counties until Dec. 22. They'll even wear a Santa hat to greet your delighted friends and family members at the door. For $40, they'll include all five varieties, including the new holiday special. Delivery is only $8, which is a bargain considering the time and gas you'll save.
So order online or via email, or stop by Dan's Gourmet Spot at this Friday's special holiday edition of Night Market at the Nashville Farmers' Market, 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 16. Come hungry.
