The way I heard it, when Maria de’ Medici married Henry IV of France, the French were still eating with their hands, and she was appalled by French food.

Salsa Mahonesa (Mayonnaise) was invented by the Mahon family in the Balearic Islands. http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=es&u =http://historiasdelagastronomia.blogspot.com/2006/ 09/salsamahonesa.html&sa=X&oi=translate&resnum=3&ct= result&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dsalsa%2Bmahonesa% 26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1T4GPTB_enUS298US298 Aioli is Garlic Mayonnaise and originated in Catalonia. http://historiasdelagastronomia.blogspot.com/2006/0 9/salsa-mahonesa.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aioli
