Notes Luisa Tetrazzini was a struggling singer when she finally made her mark at San Francisco's Tivoli Opera House in 1904. Considered one of the greatest coloratura sopranos of all time, Tetrazzini joined the Metropolitan Opera Company a few years later, but never forgot San Francisco's genorisity toward her, and returned often to sing for its citizens. The recipe for Chicken Tetrazzini was created in her honour by the chefs at San Francisco's Palace Hotel, around 1910. SFPALM
