Abstracts of Recent Research in Cookery and Allied Subjects: III: Mayonnaise


by Victoria Carlsson — 1930

The early history of mayonnaise making is only legendary. In some of our earliest cookbooks it is called Bayonnaise, because it is believed to have originated in the old fortified town of Bayonne, France, which is noted for its salad oils. Another theory is that it derived its name from an old provincial word "mahonnes” meaning to mix salad and that the suffix "aisse" evolved because of the old custom that the youngest and prettiest daughter in the family would mix the salad. There is another tale of a chef of the Duke of Mayenne who, while preparing a special salad dressing, suddenly discovered that the cream he was to have used was sour. He daringly substituted olive oil with great success.
