    • 300ml (10 1/2floz) sunflower oil/olive oil, or a blend of the two
    • 2 large egg yolks
    • 1tsp English mustard powder
    • 1tbsp lemon juice or white wine vinegar
    • 3 cloves garlic


    • Thoroughly mash the garlic and a little salt into a paste.

    • Pour the oils into a jug. Put the egg yolks in a small bowl with the mustard powder and a pinch of salt. Whisk well until thoroughly blended.

    • Add half the oil drop by drop, to the egg mixture, whisking well after each addition.

    • Beat in a few drops of lemon juice or vinegar, then dribble in oil, whisking constantly. Continue to alternate with a little lemon juice and vinegar.

    • When all the oil has been incorporated, season. Add more lemon juice or vinegar if necessary.

    • Add the garlic to the yolks, then continue as before, blending until the mayonnaise is thick. Cover and chill – it will keep for two days in the fridge. Delicious with thick-cut chips.
