Mayonnaise

A simple emulsion made off egg yolks, olive oil, salt and pepper, lemon juice and often mustard. Often used on hamburgers and sandwiches in America, mayonnaise is the most stable of a basic salad dressing. A good mayonnaise is very creamy and is rather pale to ivory in color.

 Basic Mayonnaise Recipe

3 Egg Yolks
1 fl oz White Wine Vinegar
1 Tbsp Water
2 tsp Mustard
24 fl oz Vegetable Oil
1 tsp Salt
¹/₂ tsp Sugar
¹/₄ tsp Ground White Pepper
1 fl oz Lemon Juice

Whisk egg yolks, vinegar, water, and mustard in a bowl, until slightly foamy. Slowly add oil, constantly whisking, until oil is incorporated and mayonnaise is smooth and creamy. Add salt, sugar, pepper and lemon juice, adjust seasonings to taste. Refrigerate immediately.
