If you were a young, upper class Englishman in the 17th or 18th century, chances are you set off on a Grand Tour—a rite of passage trip throughout the continent. In Italy, you most likely would have been served macaroni, and you would have found it delicious. Back at home, you would talk so much about its deliciousness that you and others like you would receive a nickname: The Macaroni Club. On-trend accessories, clothing, and one particularly extravagant wig would be deemed “very macaroni.” Later, Yankee Doodle would stick a feather in his cap and call it such.
So the next time your child brings home the quintessential Mother’s Day gift made in arts and crafts, wear it with pride, knowing you are accessorizing well. A macaroni necklace made of actual macaroni? How deliciously meta.
