Historians believe that Caesar salad honours restaurateur Caesar Cardini (1896-1956), who invented it in Tijuana, Mexico in 1924. The story goes that Cardini was running low on food and put together a salad for his guests from leftover’s in the kitchen. His original recipe included romaine lettuce, garlic, croutons, Parmesan cheese, boiled eggs, olive oil and Worcestershire sauce, all prepared tableside. In 1926, Alex Cardini joined his brother Caesar at the Tijuana restaurant and added anchovies to the mix. Caesar was said to be staunchly against the inclusion of anchovies in this salad, contending that the Worcestershire sauce was what should provide that faint fishy flavor. He also decreed that only Italian olive oil and imported Parmesan cheese be used in the dressing.
