And His FAVORITE DISH
Pollo Marengo is a dish that was created by Napoleon Bonaparte 's Chef (Dunand) after Napoleon defeated the Austrian Army at The Battle of Marengo in Piedmont, Italy. It is said the Napoleon was hungry and his chef had to forage for food-stuffs to make a meal for Napoleon. The Chefs assistansts came back with a Chicken, Crayfish, and Eggs, and so the chef went to work. The dish he created, of which Napoleon was totally enamored with is known as Pollo Marengo after the town where the battle was fought.
