Grand Strand Gets Ready for First Mac n’ Cheese Bake-off

Myrtle Beach, SC—The Grand Strand is gearing up for its first annual Mac n’ Cheese Bake-off.

Scheduled for Saturday, September 20, and hosted by Crady’s Eclectic Cuisine, the event will be held in downtown Conway, South Carolina, a historic riverfront town where food is king and southern favorites like mac n’ cheese reign.

The bake-off is expected to attract chefs—from professionals to the not-so-experienced—and those who simply love mac n’ cheese.

According to event organizer, Barbara (Crady) Whitley, the bake-off represents the first of an annual event scheduled for the third Saturday in September and honors the memory of Adam Lee Whitley, Barbara’s son and the former chef and proprietor of Crady’s.

According to Whitley, “Proceeds will help fund a Culinary Arts scholarship at Horry-Georgetown Technical College. Adam had a passion for cooking, loved mac n’ cheese, and always had an open door for aspiring young chefs—especially those from Horry-Georgetown Technical College.”

In addition to Mac n’ Cheese, this family-friendly event (no alcohol served or allowed on premises) will offer for purchase other southern staples including sweet tea and an assortment of Crady’s most requested desserts.
