Steve Mayo Recipe

Thread here.

You're right - cooking with genuine EVOO is a waste of good oil! Use it for dressings, garnishes or steeping roasted garlic, red peppers and the like. Never use it for mayonnaise - the whisking process breaks it down, leaving a bitter taste. For mayo - if you've got a stick blender, put one egg yolk, a cup of canola oil, a tablespoon each of dijon mustard and water, the juice of half a lemon and a pinch of salt into a jug and blend. In two minutes, you'll have the best mayo you've ever tasted. I grate a clove of raw garlic with a microplane into it right at the end. It's all I can do not to eat it straight out of the jug! You'll never eat the store-bought stuff again.
