"Bearnaise sauce (bair-naz)"
History: Chef Jules Colette at the Paris restaurant called Le Pavillon Henri IV in the 19th century invented Bearnaise sauce in Paris, France. It was named Bearnaise in Henry's honor as he was born in Bearn, France (a region in the Pyreness mountain range in southwest France). It is said that every chef at the restaurant tried to claim the recipe as his own.
