RaccoonRanger Posted October 26, 2020 Report Share Posted October 26, 2020 (edited) On a positive and educational side twist, I introduce this thread on interesting trivia bits that pertain to culture.. Food, Music, Movies, Fashion, etc. Something you saw, or bought, or did, and learned a little something about its history. Chef Boyardee - You see him in every grocery store in the canned food section. Was a real talented Chef who popularized take out meal kits in the 20's. And during World War 2 he was a large producer of MRE's and food for the soldiers overseas. So that can of beef ravioli in your cupboard was basically what WW2 soldiers ate for their rations. His name was changed to make it pronounceable in English. It was Ettore "Hector" Bioardi He grew his own mushrooms near the plant he used for his pasta sauces. https://www.history.com/news/the-surprising-history-of-the-real-chef-boy-ar-dee Edited October 26, 2020 by RaccoonRanger Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
