If you find yourself saying, "Extra mayo, please," this one's for you.
Slathered on sandwiches everywhere, mayonnaise is one of the most popular and versatile condiments. Although the spread is cherished worldwide, it's possible that no region loves mayo quite like the South. Perhaps it's because the city of Greenville, South Carolina, is the birthplace of Duke's Mayo, the brand that Southerners are so immensely loyal to. For over 100 years, Duke's has become a staple item in chef kitchens and household pantries, so why not celebrate it in a big way? Move over brewery and winery trails … enter the Mayo Trail.
In November, Greenville, South Carolina's Eugenia Duke's Unofficial Mayo Guide to Greenville launched in partnership with 20 local restaurants to feature the condiment in one of their menu's signature dishes. The self-guided trail was created to honor the Queen of Mayo herself, Eugenia Duke, whose original recipe was crafted in Greenville in 1917.
