This mayonnaise is so easy to make and tastes so much better than the shop bought mayo.


  • 1-2 egg yolks
  • 1-2 teaspoons of french mustard
  • 100-200ml of olive oil
  • 2-3 teaspoons of white wine vinegar
  • A pinch of salt and pepper
  • A few sprigs of chives


  • STEP 1
    Place the egg yolk in a large bowl, put the mustard in the bowl and mix.
  • STEP 2
    While whisking continuously gradually add the oil. Don't let it curdle, if it does you will have to start from scratch!
  • STEP 3
    Once all the oil has been added. Add the vinegar, salt and pepper
  • STEP 4
    To serve I like to finely chop up chives and sprinkle on top.
