Mayonnaise is a creamy sauce or dressing which is yellow and light. Often used on sandwiches, hamburgers, composed salads, and French fries, Mayonnaise is famous around the world. It is sweet and is made of egg yolk, oil, and vinegar.The name of Mayonnaise comes from the transliteration of the French Mayonnaise. The origin of this stuff is very interesting, it is a Mediterranean-style food native to the Spanish island.

Between 1754 and 1763, the colonial empires of Europe fought each other all over the world for the territorial and colonial interests of Africa, Asia, America, and other places. It was called the 7-year war. During this period, the two feuds between Britain and France were naturally inexorable. As long as there was some land interest overseas that could be contested, they would fight each other without hesitation.

Before the 7-year war, on the western side of the Mediterranean Sea on the border between Spain and France, there was an island called Minorca, which originally belonged to Spain. The island was occupied by the British during the War of the Spanish Succession in 1708. However, the residents of the island were not forced to speak English at that time. Like the rest of the Mediterranean, the island is also planted with a large number of olive trees for oil extraction. The islanders like to mix the yolks of their homemade eggs with olive oil, turn it into a sauce, and eat it with bread as a side dish. Mayonnaise was originated near the largest port on the island, Mahón. This mayonnaise is called Mahonesa by the islanders, which probably means "Mahong sauce". Back then, the sauce is only limited to the island, no one eats like this except people on this island.

When the French came to Menorca, they were interested in the local food. The French immediately followed the subordinates to the island to inspect. It didn't take long to discover that the islanders were eating this Mahone mayonnaise. After a few bites, they were amazed and immediately learned from the islanders how to prepare the sauce.

BUTTER -          

Butter is a dairy product made from milk. It is yellow and salty, melting at a certain degree when heated. Although cow's milk is the most frequent source, butter can also come from the milk of other mammals, including sheep, goats, buffalo, and yaks. Butter can be used as an ingredient in baking, sauce making, pan-frying, or dipping with bread.

To make butter, the procedure is very similar to that of the fresh cream. First, the raw milk is heated and separated into milk fat (fresh cream) and skim milk. Then, sterilize and cool the fresh cream and start churning, whipping the fresh cream continuously to release fat fine particles. When the cream fine particles gather to a certain extent, the moisture in the fat will begin to be discharged, forming buttermilk. After that, the buttermilk on the surface is washed with clean water to form a block, ready for packaging and selling.
