Jefferson requested a “maccaroni machine” for Monticello after falling in love with Italian cuisine. He describes the machine to have “some holes in the iron plate, where all the black is solid, and the rest open… there is a set of plates which may be changed at will, with holes of different shapes & sizes for the different sorts of Maccaroni.” Jefferson’s cooks used this machine in the Monticello kitchen, making pasta a popular dish at Jefferson’s presidential dinners.
