Why maccheroni? A ransom dream

"‘Macaroni’ is one of the best known Italian culinary words outside of Italy, but today the ‘macarone’ is not exactly associated with high-quality cuisine. They are often precooked industrial products, seasoned in a surreal way for an Italian, tasting rather badly. But forget about industrial food. The Italian macaroni (maccheroni) are something completely different, artisanal made and with a genuine taste. Rather fantastic, just try.

Macaroni are of very ancient origin - perhaps even Etruscan – and already very famous in the fourteenth century when Boccaccio describes them as a prototype of goodness in the country of Bengodi in his Decameron.

Italian emigration has contributed a lot to macaroni’s fame worldwide. At the end of the nineteenth century thousands of Italians, often poor, left for the United States and soon they founded macaroni factories and even a newspaper, the National Macaroni Journal. In 1928 the paper published a revisited chapter of Marco Polo's Il Milione, in which a Venetian sailor seduces a beautiful Chinese woman and by doing so invents the macaroni. Probably not true, but the story became a myth and is still very much alive.

In Italy the durum wheat pasta has to be cooked al dente, seasoned strictly with mint and a freshly prepared sauce, topped with cheese. The result is a simple and very popular dish, exemplary for the top dishes of Italian cuisine and best enjoyed with a glass of good wine.

Combine MACCHERONI AND WINE and you will get an international table, a global story in which everybody is invited and included. Where the most elitist and the most popular foods meet each other, fall in love, and make a perfect wedding. Consider it a metaphor f or life – Maccheroni and wine. Enjoy.
