See also: Chicken Tetrazzini Recipe
Louisa Tetrazzini (1871-1940) was an Italian operatic soprano. Chicken Tetrazzini was created in her honor by an American chef in the early 20th century.
The following information was contributed by Andrea Niosi:
James Beard believes it [Chicken Tetrazzini] was created in San Francsico, as well as many others, but I find no documentation.
My research shows one of two scenarios:
1. Created by Chef Pavani at the Knickerbocker in NY around 1912 or
2. Created by Chef Arbogast at the Palace Hotel in SF, CA around 1908.
