Good Food polled listeners as to what they’ll be eating on election night. Mac and cheese, wine, warm soup, and “my feelings” were a few of the responses. Comfort was the running theme. Polina Chesnakova offers versions of nachos, a croque monsieur, stuffed shells, and a khachapuri that hearkens back to her Georgian heritage. They’re all in her book of cozy recipes, “Hot Cheese.”
