Origin of Mayonnaise
During a Mid-18th century battle on the island of Minorca, Spain, a French marshal Duc de Richelieu enjoyed the sauce for a meat dish in a coastal town of Mahon, and brought it back to Paris as Mahon's sauce, or Mahonnaise. It is widely believed to be the origin of what became known as mayonnaise.
