On this day in:

1768 Francois Auguste Rene Vicomte de Chateaubriand was born. Chateaubriand was a French writer and politician. His chef, Montmireil, created the famous recipe consisting of a center cut from the beef tenderloin, grilled and served with béarnaise sauce and chateau potatoes. He named the dish Chateaubriand.

1781 The settlement known as “El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora La Reina de Los Angeles de Porciuncula” (City of the Queen of the Angels) was founded. Now known as simply Los Angeles, California.

1783 Frederic Tudor was born (died Feb 6, 1864). 'The Ice King' He created an export trade for block ice harvested from frozen ponds in New England during the winter.  The ice was shipped in insulated cargo holds to the Carribbean, India and Europe and stored in insulated warehouses.

1885 The Exchange Buffet opened, the first self service restaurant.

1920 Craig Claiborne was born (died Jan 22, 2000).  Influential American food writer, cookbook author. Food editor and restaurant critic for the ‘NY Times’.

1957 Last game of the greatest baseball team in history. On September 4, the last game is played at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn as the Dodgers prepare to move to LA. On February 23 of 1960, they tear the stadium down. Days that will live in infamy. I guess you can tell I was born in Brooklyn and a Dodger fan.

1967 The final episode of 'Gilligans Island' TV show airs.
