The History of Noodles
The Italian cooking is delicious and different in all its aspect, but noodles have been its pride and radiance through much of its history. When Italians traveled, relaxing throughout the New World and Oceania, they carried their noodles with them, and it found its way into everyone’s lifestyle and ease global food that today we take for fixed. The birth of noodles is as tangled, yet, as spaghetti tossed in a basin. Let us trace the ambiguous history of past, detonate a few mythologies and ask a few questions.
- The first open record of noodles by boiling is in the Jerusalem Talmud, written in Aramaic in the 5th century AD. The word used for the noodles was it Riya.
- In Arabic references, this word stands for the dried noodles purchased from a vendor, rather than homemade noodles which would be fresh. Dried noodles are portable while fresh must eaten immediately. More than likely, noodles were introduced during the Arab subjugations of Sicily, carried in as a bare essential. The Arab geographer, Al Idrisi wrote that a flour-based product in the shape of strings was developed in Palermo, and then an Arab colony.
- Some historians think the Sicilian word “noodles” which translates as “made into the dough by force” is the derivation of our word, noodles. Anyone who has massaged durum wheat knows that force is necessary.
- “Yankee” was a mispronunciation of the word “English” in the Dutch language, and “Noodle” came from a German word meaning ‘simpleton.’ In the pre-Revolutionary era, the dandified British macaroni scoffed at the colonialists and called them Yankee Doodles.
