Random Fact: Mayonnaise takes its name from the island of Naise in the Eastern Atlantic. During medieval times, merchants from Europe took early summer trips to the island to acquire a delicious spread produced by the locals. Eventually, the secret behind its creation was discovered, but it retained its name from the initial trips. Every “May on Naise” merchants looked forward to the tidy profit they could turn by bringing the concoction back to the continent.*
