“A Tale of Two Caesars” by Martin S. Lindsay

The Culinary Historians of San Diego announce an online presentation via Zoom of “A Tale of Two Caesars: Salad and Pasta” by Martin S. Lindsay at 10:30 am on Saturday, March 20, 2021. The event is free and open to the public.

This event will be held online via Zoom. 

Many have claimed to, but who really originated Caesar’s Salad? And where is Baja-Mediterranean style cooking from? Lindsay will explore the culinary legacies of the Cardini and Pastore families. From the origins of Caesar’s Salad (Alex and Caesar Cardini) in Tijuana to Caesar’s “Half-and-Half” Pasta and brown mushroom sauce (Caesar Pastore) in San Diego.

10:30am – 12:00pm
Saturday, March 20, 2021
