A Macaroni Recipe From 1784

Jon Townsend (previously) cooks up a little macaroni and cheese from a recipe published in 1784. Along the way, we get a bit of history about the term "macaroni" in the sense that it was used in the song "Yankee Doodle." But that has nothing to do with food. This dish is pretty basic, but sounds delicious. Several comments under the video asked where the nutmeg is. I had never heard of macaroni and cheese with nutmeg, but apparently there are a lot of recipes that call for it. Townsends has their own blog about historical recipes and food, aimed at use in reenactments, called Savoring the Past. (via reddit
