Cardini worked in Tijuana, Mexico to avoid the Prohibition happening in the United States. Rosa, Cardini’s daughter, stated that her father invented the salad at his restaurant Cardini’s, at the Hotel Cesar, on July 4th, 1924.
Also question is, who actually invented the Caesar salad and when?
We may never know the real story of whether Caesar, Alex, Livio or Paul created the dish, but one thing is for certain: an Italian immigrant invented one of the US’s most famous salads in Tijuana with romaine lettuce named after Rome.
Likewise, is Cesar salad from Mexico?
This classic was invented somewhere we never would have guessed: Mexico. Legend has it that Italian-American restaurateur Caesar Cardini invented the salad in 1924 in Tijuana, Mexico.
Who invented the Caesar?
Gaius Julius Caesar (Latin: [ˈɡaːiʊs ˈjuːliʊs ˈkae̯sar]; 12 July 100 BC – 15 March 44 BC) was a
|Gaius Julius Caesar|
|Born||12 July 100 BC Rome, Italy|
|Died||15 March 44 BC (aged 55) Rome, Italy|
|Cause of death||Assassination (stab wounds)|
But trust me the only way to really get that incredible authentic Caesar flavor is to use Anchovies. They provide that briny blast of goodness and that rich umami flavor. Umami literally means pleasant savory taste, which is exactly what the anchovies provide.
