WATCH: Gail Simmons Agrees That The World Needs Mac ‘N’ Cheese Right Now

Gail Simmons visited The Today Show this grey and drizzly New York morning with warm and toasty childhood nostalgia dishes. Willie Geist pointed out at the top of the somber demo that it felt like a good day for comfort food, and Gail agreed.

“The world needs some love right now, don’t you think?” she asked.

“The world needs some mac ‘n’ cheese,” Willie replied.

“That’s right! That’s exactly right.”

And so, not long after her chef-pretension-free, Velveeta-and-sharp-cheddar mac ‘n’ cheese was whipped up, her chicken soup was on the boil, and her cheddar biscuit beef pot pie was golden brown, the rest of the anchors bounded in with all the energy of children coming in from playing in the snow to snatch up all her offerings.

Check out the clip below for a strong hit of warmth this morning.
