A little history of pasta

The first pasta factories established in Turkey are Piyale (1942), ECE (1954), Nuh’un Ankara Makarnası (1959) and Ulukartal (1961). It is rumored that the pasta came from the name of the Commedia dell’Arte hero Mascherone. It is also rumored that the name comes from “makarios” (contentment in Greek) said by Frederick III (ruled between 1515-1576) during a feast where he ate pasta and liked it a lot. Mass production of spaghetti was started in Naples and it was dried in wooden frames in the 1800’s. The dough was kneaded by hand until the 1830s, and the development of mixing machines increased pasta production.
