I have compiled a long list of dishes named after famous people,
like fettuccine Alfredo, beef Stroganoff, tornado Rossini etc.
Please provide other examples in a format:
<dish, name of a person, short description & origin>.
The post's aim is to jointly cover the whole range(if possible) of the alphabet.
(In reply to let's play chicken
by ed bottemiller)
From the web;
is a game designed to test the nerve of the players involved. Many believe the only way to play a game of chicken is the car way - in which two people each get into the driver's seat of a car and drive straight towards each other at top speed, the first to swerve out of the impending head-on collision is the "chicken". However there are other ways that a game of chicken can be played. One ways is to have all players stand on a railroad track as a train quickly approaches. The first person to leap off of the tracks to avoid being hit by the train is the "chicken". Another way is to have all players swim into a river that has a large waterfall downstream. The first person to get out of the river to avoid going over the waterfall is the "chicken". Yet another way to play chicken is most popular with surfers. Two or more players get onto their surfboards and catch the same wave – a wave that is taking them straight for jagged rocks. The first person to ditch their board and swim away to avoid the rocks is the "chicken".
