Mayonnaise is one of those sauces that is either loved or hated by the sauce community. there is no middle ground here. It is a staple sauce that pairs wonderfully with most crunchy snacks, sandwiches and more. It is the foundation of several classic sauces.

As a mayo lover, I would like to dedicate this recipe to all the home cooks out there.

In the video above you will learn how to make mayonnaise using a food processor and the traditional way; using a whisk and bowl.

Feel free to dive in and try this recipe at home, the goal here is to spread sauce knowledge and encourage home cooks to create restaurant grade sauces at home.
