According to records, three customers came to her establishment "La Buvette De La Marine" for lunch and she wanted to serve the pike that they ordered with some béarnaise sauce. However, she forgot to add the tarragon and egg yolks when preparing the sauce, thus accidentally inventing the beurre blanc sauce. Some sources also claim that this invention occurred while she worked as a cook for the Marquis de Goulaine at Château de Goulaine.
