10 People Who Gave Their Name To Food

Have you ever wondered who the Alfredo in Fettuccine Alfredo was? Or The Salisbury in Salisbury steak? Listverse has the stories of those whose names are left behind in the foods we eat.
Crêpes Suzette (thin pancakes covered with orange liqueur and sometimes set alight) were invented by the famous French chef Auguste Escoffier in honor of the renowned French actress (and Baroness) Suzanne Reichenberg (1853-1924). While this is the most likely origin of the dish (as Escoffier almost single-handedly invented modern French cuisine), other stories claim it was invented by a 15 year old assistant chef serving Queen Victoria’s son. This is most unlikely as an assistant chef would not have been given the chance to cook for royalty.
