This dish is named after the small village of Marengo, in Italian Piedmont.
On June 14, 1800, Bonaparte had just won a battle against the Austrians. There was not much left in the camp kitchens and Napoleon began to feel hungry. To satisfy him, Dunand, in charge of his table, served him what he could find: sautéed chicken in olive oil with tomatoes and garlic, served with fried eggs, crayfish and bread croutons.
Napoleon really liked it and asked to have that dish served again in the future.
