If you like mayonnaise this is way, way better than anything you can buy, but don’t expect an experience without taste and colour. Perfect for a rustic lunch with bread and some salad.

  • Put the egg yolks into a large bowl. Add the mustard, the salt and the pepper. Alternatively blend in a processor.
  • Add the oil, a drop at a time, beating even more quickly until the mayonnaise is very thick, in a blender the oil can be added faster (as fast as it is absorbed)
  • Add the vinegar or lemon juice.
  • Add the rest of the oil, a tablespoon at a time now until finished.
  • You can now flavour your mayonnaise, if you like. Some great additions include crushed garlic., chilli sauce, tomato ketchup, chopped capers, cornichons, onions, herbs, anchovies.
  • If you don't serve the mayonnaise right away, or in the unlikely event of leftovers, the mayonnaise will keep for 2 days in the fridge if it is put in a bowl covered with cling film touching the mayonnaise.
