This, the national fare of Italy, deserves much more popularity than it enjoys among ourselves. Weight for weight, macaroni contains from two to three times as much flesh-forming material as good household bread. This is the opinion of eminent analytical chemists at home and abroad; while Dr. Hassall claims for it far more nutrient power than any of the cereals employed as food in this country. Now that butcher's meat has become so high in price, the use of macaroni, as a substitute, twice or thrice a week, deserves consideration. It is susceptible of varied culinary treatment, and is not only palatable and appetising, but of high nitrogenous value when cooked with cheese.

The finest qualities of macaroni (from the Italian maccare, to bruise or crush) are those which are whitest in colour, and do not burst or break up in boiling; it should swell considerably and become quite soft ; but if it does not retain its form when boiled, it has not been made of the best wheat. Some makers flavour and colour it with turmeric, to suit certain tastes; but this is limited to very few. Only hard kinds of wheat are applicable to the manufacture of macaroni, as they contain a large per-centage of gluten. The following is the method of preparation :—The wheat is first ground into a coarse meal, from which the bran is removed—in that state it is called semolina ; while the grinding is going forward, it is necessary to employ both heat and humidity to ensure a good, semolina. This is worked up into a dough with water, and for macaroni it is forced through pipe-shaped gauges. Strictly speaking, indeed, the name macaroni applies exclusively to wheaten paste in the form of pipes, varying in diameter from the size of an ordinary quill pen to an inch. There is no essential difference between vermicelli and macaroni.
