The Story

 

When Queen Elizabeth I died at the beginning of the 17th century, James I became the King

 

His decision to send Scots and English to Ireland occurred around the same time that the Spanish and French were fighting over the Island of Menorca

 

It was in Mayo, the capital of Menorca, that a chef was instructed to make a sauce of egg yolks and oil - this occured whilst the fighting was underway

 

The French then took this sauce to their mainland and created what we know today as mayonnaise

 

 

Our Mayonnaise is made to a traditional recipe, using eggs from rare breed ducks we free range on our farm in regional Victoria.
