Occupation: Chef
Trick: How to make perfect mayonnaise:

  • Three egg yolks
  • 1 tsp Dijion mustard
  • 200ml Light olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Half a lemon, juiced
Place the egg yolks, lemon juice and mustard in a bowl and combine fully. Next, pouring slowly with one hand and whisking with the other, add the oil gradually drop by drop, making sure each drop is combined before adding the next. Once a thick emulsion has formed the oil can be added faster in a constant steady stream. Keep whisking until a smooth creamy thick texture has been achieved. Adjust the seasoning to taste.
