This classic dip goes great with tones of stuff and is so much better then shop bought mayonnaise. It is not that difficult to make as long as you keep whisking like there is no tomorrow and you should achieve the perfect consistency.

  • 2 Large egg yolks
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt + pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 300ml light olive oil


    1. Start by separating the yolks from the whites and placing the yolks in a large bowl. Be sure not to get any white in with the yolks.
    2. Add the white wine vinegar, the dijon mustard, seasoning and the minced garlic. To mince the garlic use a garlic press or by using a grater. After adding the garlic whisk the mixture until it has become smooth.
    3. At this point you may consider getting somebody pour the oil into the bowl whilst you are whisking as you do not want your emulsion to split. Start trickling the oil into the egg yolks very slowly and constantly whisking. Don't stop whisking whilst you are pouring the oil into the bowl.
    4. After you have poured all of the oil into the mixture you should be left with your homemade mayonnaise. You may need to add more salt or pepper depending on what flavour you are looking for. Your mixture should be smooth and look rather similar to normal mayonnaise.
    5. Finally add in 1 tbsp of water to the mixture and transfer the mayonnaise to an empty jam jar which has been thoroughly washed and dried. The mayonnaise should keep for up to 4 days in your refrigerator.
