The exact origin of macaroni and cheese is unknown, though it most likely hails from Northern Europe, with the earliest known recorded recipe being scribbled down in 1769. A staple of American cuisine, the creamy combo made its way to the United States courtesy of Thomas Jefferson, who, while visiting France, became enamored of fashionable pasta dishes served there. He brought back noodle recipes and a pasta machine, since this foodstuff was unavailable in the Colonies. As president, he served macaroni and cheese at an 1802 state dinner. Continue reading

Slip down to The Capital Grille in Dallas, Fort Worth or Plano and take part in The Generous Pour. It is essentially a matching flight of wines to go with the food you choose from the menu.

You start with the whites. Your waiter or waitress gives you a good-sized taste of each wine. If you want more of one that you especially like they are easygoing about that.        Continue reading
