THE COBB SALAD

"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.

"Cobb's midnight invention became an overnight sensation with Derby customers, people like movie mogul Jack Warner, who regularly dispatched his chauffeur to pick up a carton of the mouth-watering salad."

Since 1937, more than 4 million Cobb salads have been sold at Brown Derby restaurants, according to the Brown Derby Restaurant Group, which, now that the two original Hollywood restaurants have closed, is what the company calls itself. It licenses the restaurant name for merchandise (including bottled Cobb salad dressing), as well as to Disney, which opened a reproduction of the original Brown Derby in Orlando, Florida, in 1989 and, in 1990. signed a 20-year agreement for Brown Derby restaurants in Tokyo, Paris and Anaheim, California. You can read all about The Brown Derby and its glamorous customers in The Brown Derby Restaurant: A Hollywood Legend, which includes many of the Derby's recipes.

Footnote: There's also a legend about how the Brown Derby got its name: One night, Herbert Somborn, an ex-husband of Gloria Swanson, remarked -- speaking of the mood of Hollywood in the roaring 20s -- that "You could open a restaurant in an alley and call it anything. If the food and service were good, the patrons would just come flocking. It could be called something as ridiculous as the Brown Derby." Hence, a restaurant shaped like a hat opened near Hollywood and Vine in 1926.



Cobb Salad

1/2 head lettuce, about 4 cups

1 bunch watercress

1 small bunch chicory, about 2 1/2 cups

1/2 head romaine, about 2 1/2 cups

2 medium peeled tomatoes

6 strips of crisp bacon
2 breasts of boiled chicken

3 hard cooked eggs

1 avocado

1/2 cup crumbled Roquefort cheese

2 tablespoons chopped chives

1 cup (approximately) Original Cobb Salad Dressing



Cut lettuce, half the watercress, chicory and romaine in fine pieces and arrange in a large salad bowl.

Cut tomatoes, bacon, chicken, eggs, and avocado in small pieces and arrange, along with the crumbled Roquefort cheese, in strips on the greens.

Sprinkle finely cut chives over the Cobb salad and garnish with the remaining watercress.

Just before serving mix the salad with the Cobb salad dressing.


Original Cobb Salad Dressing

Makes 1 1/2 cups

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1/4 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 teaspoons salt

3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 teaspoon dry English mustard

1 small clove garlic, finely minced

1/4 cup full-flavored olive oil

3/4 cup salad oil


Blend all ingredients together, except oils. Add olive and salad oils. Mix well.

Blend well again before mixing with salad.

A note from the Brown Derby: "The water is optional, depending upon the degree of oiliness desired in the dressing."

1. Do you need significantly more calories or find yourself eating more in order to maintain the extra weight?
2. When actively gaining or maintaining, do you have a bigger food budget or do you choose cheaper but less healthy high-cal foods instead?
3. How often do you feel physically sick after a large meal after the buzz goes away and how do you deal with the sugar crash?
4. Isn't gaining and weight maintainence stressful?
1. I've always been fat, and I've always naturally eaten a large enough amount of food to maintain my current weight or unintentionally gain. It's never a struggle for me, it happens naturally.
2. I have never actively gained more than a small amount of weight, but as for maintaining, I don't necessarily plan it out. Whatever happens, happens. I'm broke so in general I try to mooch off my parents as much as possible and eat 89 cent tacos from Taco Bell.
3. I've felt physically sick often enough to make me be careful. I hate that feeling. I just remind myself that it'll go away soon, generally even if I go a little too far, the pain wears off within a half hour or so and I feel okay. I don't really ever get a sugar crash.
4. Not for me, as I let it happen naturally.

I think discussing some of these elements to feeding could be enlightening to the folks that just don't understand where you're coming from. I am definitely a feeder but weight gain is not necessarily the goal all, or really any, of the time.
I wouldn't say I have absolutely no inclination to gain weight, as it does interest me, but since I'm not currently trying to gain I focus more just on the eating itself. Those elements are definitely a large majority of what appeals to me about feederism.. the idea of overindulgence/gluttony is enough to get me going, generally. However, I'm not really trying to enlighten anyone.. especially in this thread!

1. Do you need significantly more calories or find yourself eating more in order to maintain the extra weight?

No. I've always been chunky and throughout my life I have always gained 10 to 15 pounds each year. It was not voluntary. I noticed that for no reason at all I would go through a severe increase in appetite. This usually happend in the fall -- September, October -- and would continue for weeks, sometimes months. Attempts to stop the gain only made my appetite more savage than it was originally. When all was said and done I usually gained about 13 pounds from the incident and the weight never came off despite my appetite's returned to normal. It has been a yearly occurrance to the present day.

2. When actively gaining or maintaining, do you have a bigger food budget or do you choose cheaper but less healthy high-cal foods instead?

I supplemented my food intake with daily treats: A brownie, cookies, ice cream, a milk shake instead of soda, chai tea with heavy cream. I did not change my diet at all other than including one of those simple daily treats. Once I stopped this supplementation my weight usually returned to what it was previously unless the weight gain was a natural occurrance due to the happenstance described above.

3. How often do you feel physically sick after a large meal after the buzz goes away and how do you deal with the sugar crash?

Not very often. My situation is complicated by an unknown food allergy that I am trying to narrow down. This allergic response was triggered once the law forced restaurants to stop using trans fats to prepare food. It is inconclusive at this point though. Because I take small steps that are barely noticeable in the big picture the gain is pretty much straight forward and painless. Including protien with sweets usually does much to stave off sugar crash. A bag of nuts seems to balance things out nicely.


4. Isn't gaining and weight maintainence stressful?

No because the amount of food I eat is normal for me and my weight is normal for me as well. My brother is tall and underweight. He eats more food than I do and is far more indiscriminate in what he eats than I am. His weight never goes up yet my hands and ankles swell just watching him eat a plate of home fries. He *should* weigh what I weigh at the very least but he doesn't. Sometimes it just boils down to what cards we've been dealt in life and we have to make the most of it with what is right for us. The concept of a one size fits all formula is a myth.

I don't really care about the individual labels either way. I do kind of hate that the fetish is called "feedERism", though, because I feel like it doesn't acknowledge the feedee side of it. I'd prefer it be called "feedism", I guess.

I call it feedism just... because I like it better too. It's rare that I actually say "feedERism". Feedism or just Feeding usually works for me.

I used the word feedism BEFORE all the cool kis were jumping on the feedism bandwagon.

I too prefer the term Feedism. Feederism seems to favor the Feeder side of things without acknowledging the Feedee, who, in my opinion, is the most important person in the relationship.

Oh well, guess there is comfort in being able to take someone to a lot of good restaurants :-)
Kevin:

For me cooking is both a pleasure and therapy. I'm not a big fan of fast foods. I use to eat the stuff when I was younger and will eat some every now and then;but, prefer to cook and or get my ides from some of the resturants...

In fact, I get some of my best ideas eating out. The other day I had gotten this Pasta Salad from the http://www.chow.com/places/28894] Milano Market[/url]...It was pretty good - but, I didn't want to spend another $4.00 for 1/4 lbs. - so let me do something at home

I know that this stuff should be on the FOODEE Board- so I hope you don't mind that I post this here...

Milano's Pasta Salad
(Tri Color Pasta/Feta Cheese/Mayo/Fresh Spinach Chopped/ Tomatoes Diced)
This was good;but, I wanted to do something along theose lines at home and see what other ingredients I could add...




Tony's Pasta Salad

1 (16 ounce) package tri-color pasta
1/3 cup Mayo
3 tablespoons Chopped Dry Parsley (from the Jar
1 cup Grated Feta Cheese (or Goat Cheese)
1 (1 ounce) of Marinated Red Peppers
1 (2.25 ounce) can pitted olives drained
Pepper To Taste

*** mix all ingredients let chill for at least an hour or two before serving

*** I did not add any salt as I get plenty of that from the Feta Cheese
other ingredients can be adjusted accordingly

*** Left out tomatoes as they tend to get mushy if you don't eat this salad the same day.



I sincerely hope my talk of food has gotten some of you gorgeous ladies in the thread to rush to the fridge and grab a snack or two or three..

I changed the topic header. But I think that you'll find very few additions to those who've already responded.
