  • This popular classic salad, including all the tableside showmanship by waiters when preparing it tableside, became a sensation in America back in the 1920s. It is widely accepted that Caesar Cardini, a restaurant owner and chef in Tijuana, Mexico, whipped up a salad from scratch with leftover ingredients for a gathering of hungry Hollywood notables.

    To many, including me, this is the king of salads. It was probably the first main coursesalad, and topped with chicken or fish, is truly a main course.

Bags of cough drops and boxes of tissues leave grocery and pharmacy shelves. Henny Penny’s false alarm has come true. Menacing flu with its myriad aches and pains, weakness and fever has struck.
