Hoy empiezo una nueva etapa. Después de algo más de cuatro años y medio trabajando en Alaior regreso a la oficina de Ferreries. Se que echaré mucho en falta a mis compañeros y a la gente de Alaior ¡¡que bien me he encontrado en este pueblo!! pero también que en mi tierra (soy de Ferreries y vivo aquí) estaré estupendamente, me esperan unos buenos compañeros y el lujo de tener mi casa a menos de un minuto de la oficina. ¡¡A por ese lunes!! #ferreries#menorca#encasa#nuevaetapa#bicicleta#bike#bicycle
e então... BODAS DE ALGODÃO!
simples, leve, sincero... assim se passaram nossos 2 anos de casamento!
e seguimos... com sorriso fácil, companheirismo e muito aprendizado!
dia a dia, forever and ever.... com você, em qualquer lugar, para onde Deus nos levar!!!
Most people assume that mayonnaise comes from France. Especially the French. But on the small Spanish island of Menorca, the people here will tell you their own origin story.
The clue, they claim, is in the name. The largest city on Menorca is called Mahon and, if you say it right, mayonnaise sounds just like Mahon-aise.
As the story goes, it was in the mid-1700s that mayonnaise emerged here on Menorca. The French had laid siege to the island and the duke in charge of these forces enjoyed his food. It was his chef who brought mayonnaise to him. Either he was forced to create it through experimentation because there was no decent cream on the island – or the locals showed him how to make it because they already knew (the tale differs slightly here). Regardless, it was a product of Menorca, according to this version. the Spanish version.
“The story says that at the time it happened, it was when the French occupied the island and then the French export the mayonnaise from here.” This story is supported, some believe, by the fact that French cuisine had no mention of mayonnaise until the middle of the 18th century. It could make logical sense that the French brought back the idea and the recipe from Menorca.
However, there is another school of thought. The bluntest proposition within the alternate version is that a small island like Menorca just didn’t have the sophistication to come up with something like mayonnaise. The more educated reasoning is that all the old recipe books describe mayonnaise and French and there is no mention of Menorca or Spain in reference to the condiment.
In some ways, It is odd to think that there is even such an argument about a food that is really quite basic. Mayonnaise only has two ingredients – eggs and olive oil – so why is it not possible that it was invented independently in more than one location?
