My husband and I were eating at a restaurant in Paris where the chef came and prepared the Caesar salad right next to our table. We loved it and asked him for the recipe. He offered it to us for $200, which was quite a lot of money at the time. As we left the restaurant, my husband assured me that he had remembered everything. As soon as we got back to the hotel, he wrote down everything that he remembered. After this trip, every time that I prepared this dish my husband would rate me. He always scored me between 80% and 90%, never a perfect 100%. So I told him “if you want the original recipe, go back to Paris!”
