Trivia 8/6

trivia 8/6
Mayonnaise is said to be the invention of the French chef of the Duke de Richelieu in 1756. While the Duke was defeating the British at Port Mahon, his chef was creating a victory feast that included a sauce made of cream and eggs. When the chef realized that there was no cream in the kitchen, he improvised, substituting olive oil for the cream. A new culinary masterpiece was born, and the chef named it "Mahonnaise" in honor of the Duke's victory.

Meaning “one who struggles with God,” the name Israel was given to Jacob, one of the Hebrew patriarchs, after he prevailed in his struggle with an angel of God.
The 12 sons of Jacob are referred to as B’nai Israel, or the children of Israel, in the first chapter of the book of Exodus. Subsequently, the term B’nai Israel was applied to the whole Jewish people, who by tradition were considered descendants of the sons of Jacob.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
