The History of Mac & Cheese
Did you know that the earliest history of mac and cheese dates back to 1769? It’s true. A scribbled recipe was actually found from that year and the origins of the dish trace back to Northern Europe according to smithsonianmag.com. The website further states that Thomas Jefferson became enamored of fashionable pasta dishes that he was served while visiting in France and brought the pasta concoction back to the United States. He even served macaroni and cheese at a state dinner in 1802.
The Kraft Foods Company, however, is primarily responsible for the widespread popularity of macaroni and cheese throughout the country. The company introduced its boxed macaroni and cheese in 1937 while America was in the throes of the Great Depression. The inexpensive cost and great taste was an immediate hit with the public.
