    Seriously, dude?

    Yes I know that too,
    Mayonaise was invented by Machon -Mayo brother of Hannibal

    he was forced to feed soldiers and the only left was olive oil, vinegar and eggs,

    but not in Balearides outside Rome I know,

    Hmmm...
    I don't believe all the stories.

    Who invented what?

    Some things just pop up at lots of places and periods in time.

    For instance... Worcestershire Sauce.. Hmmm..
    The British copied a sauce from India, and the Indians got it from.... the Romans..

    Another thing is, it's not that hard to understand that combining the standard flavors salty, sweet, bitter, sour and whatever herbs to make a well balanced and fine tasting dish.

    BTW In the middle ages European food was kind of sour according to our taste.
    They used lots of onions, cabbage, cooked with vinegar to make it softer.

    I think the French Boeuf Bourguignon gives you an idea.

    Many dishes which are assigned to France (and less to Italy), they clearly existed before, in many other places. A typical example is "mayonnaise", which in fact has its origin in MaĆ³ (Menorca), in Catalan "maonesa", which is a derivation from the Catalan "all-i-oli". But there are examples of the same or similar product much earlier, in Greece and in Egypt.

    https://ca.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maionesa

    In general, many products which are "known" to be French, they are in fact Mediterranean, having existed for a long time before in the anonymous homes of many Mediterraneans. French (and Italians) just appropriated them without proper referencing.
