    Link: Since When Is Mac And Cheese A `Black Thing`? - Is this racist? Pat Robertson asking if Mac n` Cheese is `a black thing` or her caricaturistic confirmation that it is?

    Gonna go with VERY NOT BLACK

    Since the Kraft Company put it in a box in 1937 every American kid grew up with macaroni and cheese. There can be no doubt that its ultimate origins are Italian, as one finds macaroni and cheese recipes from the late thirteenth century in southern Italy. The anonymous Liber de coquina, written in Latin by someone familiar with the Neapolitan court then under the sphere of Charles II of Anjou (1248-1309) has a recipe called de lasanis which we can call the first “macaroni and cheese” recipe. It was a macaroni, in this case, lasagne sheets made from fermented dough and cut into two-inch squares that were cooked in water and tossed with grated cheese, probably Parmesan. The author suggests using powdered spices and layering the sheets of lasagne, just like today, with the cheese if desired.

    But the American macaroni and cheese has two main lines of ancestry claimed. In the first, it is thought that macaroni and cheese was a casserole that had its beginnings at a New England church supper. In southeastern Connecticut it was known long ago as macaroni pudding. In the second, and more famous story, and more than likely the original story, it is said that the classic American macaroni and cheese returned with Thomas Jefferson to Virginia after his sojourn in Italy. Jefferson had brought back a pasta machine from Italy. His daughter Mary Randolph became the hostess of his house after Jefferson’s wife died and she is credited with inventing the dish using macaroni and Parmesan cheese. Later, the Parmesan was replaced with cheddar cheese. Anyway, that`s one story. It is more likely that Jefferson encountered the dish in Italy and brought back the recipe.

    "it is said that the classic American macaroni and cheese returned with Thomas Jefferson to Virginia after his sojourn in Italy. "

    ??????????????
    Who the hell comes up with this poo??!!
    I mean, for cryin out loud! Macaroni is an italian dish, man!
    Italians came to the states as lowly immigrants in the late 19th century and brough that dish with them... the rest of the americans started eating macaroni and cheese when Kraft sold it in a mass consumption box...

    jeez... the crap you come up with...
    what`s next? George Washington ate feta cheese and mousaka whilst writing your retarded rights to carry machine guns?

    If Pat Robertson was blonde, young, and female, he`d (or she`d) fit the stereotype perfectly.

    Yup, yell at me for quoting history. Obviously an Italian dish couldn`t possibly be brought in by somebody who had been in Italy at some point in their life. Those stupid drating historians and their crap eh?

    Every time I celebrate a holiday with my best friend and his family, who are black, the mac and cheese is the first thing on my plate. Next is the fried chicken. Next are the greens. It`s called soul food, and it is how many poor people celebrate the holidays, regardless of skin tone. I could go for some right now... screw the turkey and taters!

    Is mac and cheese a delicacy to them? She doesn`t get that many white family`s have mac and cheese as a side dish with fish sticks and other main dishes...How much money does she make? She can afford mac and cheese EVERY DAY. It kinda gets boring after a while when you have to live off of it though.

    @Thedaringeel
    Try to make more sense in your posts and I don`t know about how it is where you live, but around here `white family`s` don`t have `mac and cheese as a side dish with fish sticks` on Thanksgiving. Turkey Day, not Fish Sticks Day.
