A bountiful ocean, rich soil and ingenious residents combined to create unforgettable and enduring gastronomic legacies. Discover the disputed origins of local specialties like the Chicken Tetrazzini, chop suey and the classic martini, along with the legend behind the creation of Green Goddess Dressing. Special guest stars in attendance: Peruvian cuisine expert Nico Vera making pisco punches, and Tamir Ben-Shalom of Bull Valley Roadhouse representing (and doing a tasting of) the martini/martinez cocktails!
