Exotic Tropical Plate Of The Week: The Original CAESAR SALAD

Caesar Salad Was Invented in Tijuana, Mexico by…

Caesar Cardini had originally operated a restaurant in San Diego, California, but relocated to Tijuana, Mexico with the advent of Prohibition.  Like many restaurateurs, Cardini believed that a fine meal in the town required cocktails before dinner and wine with dinner.  In Tijuana, he could offer both.

According to Caesar’s daughter Rosa, her father invented the salad when a Fourth of July 1924 rush depleted the kitchen’s supplies. Cardini made do with what he had, adding the dramatic flair of the table-side tossing “by the chef.”  Caesar salad is the most spectacular salad in the world!

Workation Fabulous Idea: New Zealand A Real Paradise!

New Zealand is a small country, similar in size to Great Britain or Japan. With a population of only four million people, it’s also gloriously uncrowded.

It is made up of two main islands and numerous smaller ones. Around three-quarters of the population lives on the North Island, which is also home to the capital, Wellington.

Agriculture is the economic mainstay, but manufacturing and tourism are important. Visitors are drawn to the glacier-carved mountains, lakes, beaches, and thermal springs. Because of the islands’ geographical isolation, much of the flora and fauna are unique to the country.

ABOUT the last image of Colombia: the Caño Cristales river features no fish at all, probably because it is so filled with coral and aquatic plants.
