How Bob Cobb Brought the Cobb Salad to L.A.’s Hungry Celebrities

Hosted by

Summer is on the way, and that means it’s time for a lot of salads. And some salads are more substantial than others. Salads like the cobb salad. Loaded with bacon, avocado, hard-boiled egg and Roquefort cheese - it’s not just a salad, it’s a meal. A meal invented at the iconic Brown Derby restaurant by Robert Cobb, who chopped it up after-hours for Hollywood celebrities.
