Meet The Model-Turned-Chef We’re *Obsessing* Over

The only thing we love more than a hot guy is a hot guy with some SERIOUS culinary skills – and that’s exactly what Isaac Carew is. Yep, you probably recognise 28-year-old Isaac’s face from campaigns including Hermes, Moschino, Reiss, Replay and Lee Jeans, but Isaac is more than a one trick pony – he’s just launched Dirty Dishes, a site and YouTube channel dedicated to his cooking expertise.

We KNOW. We can hardly contain ourselves either. As if the whole concept of a drop-dead gorgeous guy cooking isn’t enough, all his recipes are DE-lish, easy to make AND affordable.

Don’t believe us? Here’s a mac n cheese recipe to change your life.


250g macaroni

320 ml buttermilk

30g butter

30g plain flour

1 shallot

1 garlic clove

Sprig of thyme

Pinch of salt and pepper

> Isaac Carew has modelled for the likes of Reiss and Hermes






65g parmesan cheese

Panko breadcrumbs


Place a large pan of salted boiling water on the stove. When the water comes to the boil, add the pasta and cook al dente. While the pasta is cooking, finely chop the shallot and garlic. In a pan melt the butter and add the garlic and shallot, cook until translucent with no brown colour.

Add the flour and cook for a few minutes. Add buttermilk and bring to a boil then a simmer. Add all the grated cheese apart from the parmesan. Drain the pasta then add to the cheese sauce and stir. Place the mixture in an oven dish, cover with breadcrumbs and parmesan.

Preheat oven at 200 degrees, bake mac ‘n’ cheese for 20 to 25 min. Serve with sautéed greens or a salad.

Lost for words? Us, too. Isaac, you are a God.
