In 1914, Chef Ettore Boiardi (Boy-Ar-dee) came to the USA through Ellis island. He was 16 years old! He became the head chef at the Plaza Hotel in New York City ONE (isn't that amazing) little year later. Mr. Boiardi even catered for the reception of President Woodrow Wilson's second wedding.
Ettore opened a restaurant in Clevland, Ohio in 1924. His spaghetti sauce was a hit! He initially sold it in milk bottles to his saucy customers. But he ended up opening a factory to keep up with the demand! Here's Beef-a-roni Part 1:)
