When a bar & grill owner posted an ad on Craigslist for a new cook, he never expected a two-star Michelin chef from Italy.
Twenty-nine-year-old Michael Magner, owner of a sub shop and pizzeria, decided to open an authentic Italian restaurant in Beverly, Massachusetts. He needed a chef. Paolo Laboa, a two-star Michelin chef, had just moved to Massachusetts with his wife and children from San Francisco. This award-winning chef couldn’t find a job anywhere in the Boston area. Calling All Chefs is the story of the improbable meeting of these two men and the magic they created.–Nubar Alexanian
