The favourite of all Belgians
At least there is one thing all Belgians agree on: mayonnaise is their favourite cold sauce! More than 50% of all sold cold sauces is Mayo! But where do you think the name mayonnaise comes from?
There are several theories regarding the origin of where mayonnaise got its name. The funniest one is the story about the woman from Mahonesse, a village on the Spanish island of Menorca. She fell in love with Richelieu, the 16th century French duke and cardinal. The woman revealed Menorcan cooking secrets to the Frenchman, including the recipe for aioli: a sauce of olive oil, mixed with egg, salt and garlic. Richelieu took the recipe to his country of birth, where it was developed into a sauce without the garlic. Mahonessa sauce became sauce mayonnaise.
