TORONTO - It was Nova Scotia all the way in a macaroni and cheese showdown, with the recipe creator and the cheese he used hailing from the Atlantic province.

Chef Andrew Farrell from 2 Doors Down in Halifax won for his Crispy Greens Mac & Cheese in the Grate Canadian Cheese Cook-Off Wednesday.

Farrell's take on the classic comfort food included four cheeses from That Dutchman's Farm — three Gouda and one blue — produced in Upper Economy, N.S. He topped cheesy noodles with a crust of kale, broccoli and brussels sprouts and added kick with Sriracha hot sauce.

The other three competitors in the challenge to reinvent the traditional comfort food were Bal Arneson, Food Network TV host and award-winning author from Vancouver, chef David Bohati, executive chef at Market Restaurant in Calgary, and Kevin Durkee, owner of Cheesewerks in Toronto.

The judges were journalist and blogger Sue Riedl; Rita DeMontis, Sun Media food editor; executive chef Jason Bangerter, who was awarded the 2012 Grate Canadian (Grilled) Cheese Cook-Off, as well as Lorie Chater of Halifax, who won a contest to be a taster.

The contest took place at Toronto's Canadian National Exhibition. It was organized by Dairy Farmers of Canada, which challenged foodies from across Canada to reinvent the traditional mac and cheese. The recipes for the four finalists are available at www.allyouneedischeese.ca/cookoff.
