Beecher's is one of Oprah's favorite thingsNovember 19, 2010 @ 1:18 pm (Updated: 1:37 pm - 3/28/11 )
Oprah's annual "Favorite Things" episode, which aired Friday, featured extravagant and sensible gifts, as well as a tasty treat from an iconic Seattle cheese shop.
Beecher's Mac and Cheese made the list, and her audience got some to sample.
"We ship quite a bit of our mac and cheese frozen around the country," said Kurt Beecher Dammier, owner of Beecher's Handmade Cheese. "Each of the audience members gets a shipment from us, plus they got to eat it live in the studio."
On her website, Oprah said "The best part [is] it comes frozen. All you have to do is heat it up, and you've got yourself some good eatin' from Beecher's."
Dammier said they watched the east coast feed of the show on Friday, and that "[Oprah] obviously really, really liked it."
According to Dammier their flagship cheese is really the core of the traditional dish. "It's a very simple recipe that was created by a few of us together."
On Friday afternoon, the Beecher's website stated that due to heavy web traffic, they were only able to offer a limited version of their website, but visitors could still order the award-winning, and now Oprah-approved, Mac and Cheese.
