Cobb salad was created at the Brown Derby Restaurant in Hollywood.
As with many “how this began stories” We don’t know how much is actual fact, but here is the official story from the Brown Derby themselves.
“One night in 1937, Bob Cobb, then owner of The Brown Derby, prowled hungrily in his restaurant’s kitchen for a snack. Opening the huge refrigerator, he pulled out this and that: a head of lettuce, an avocado, some romaine, watercress, tomatoes, some cold breast of chicken, a hard-boiled egg, chives, cheese and some old-fashioned French dressing. He started chopping. Added some crisp bacon — swiped from a busy chef.
“The Cobb salad was born. It was so good, Sid Grauman (Grauman’s Chinese Theatre), who was with Cobb that midnight, asked the next day for a ‘Cobb Salad.’ It was so good that it was put on the menu.(kitchenproject.com)

So the three day weekend is over and all of that barbecue from Memorial Day is still stuck in my ribs..
Time to tone this meat eating extravaganza down a bit by getting a salad today.
The good news is that we have some new hires starting at my job today which means my boss will take us somewhere nice to welcome them in. Nice!!
That restaurant of choice is an elegant restaurant called Birk’s!
