Eating Italian Style


I took some smartphone pictures of the delicious macaroni and cheese dinner that was made tonight. The cheese is so rich and thick, which I what I love in one of my favorite meals of all time.

The word “macaroni” comes from the Italian maccheroni, plural form of maccherone. It also has Greek origins meaning “a funeral food”.

Food historian John Dickie, in his book Delizia! The Epic History of Italians and their Food (2007),  says that the word macaroni, and its earlier variants like maccheroni, “comes from maccare, meaning to pound or crush.”
