Can you think of recipes with names of people/titles in them?

I'm thinking along the lines of Shepherd's Pie or General Tao's chicken, things like that.

Barring that, recipes with puns of people's names in them - like Cobb Salad (named after its inventor - Richard Cobb).

England has a rich history of these things, Molly cake, Sally lunn's buns, queen of puddings, hairy marys (also known as London cheesecakes), spotted dick (although I'm not sure if dick is a term for pudding here, or the more normal use as an abbreviation for Richard...)

Hunters chicken, And nowadays, with so many celeb cooks and chefs about, lots of recipes are prefixed with their name... I did Nigellas ham in cherry coke, jamie's pork recipe etc...
