1. Definition and interesting Facts about Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is a classic cold sauce. Properly prepared, it is an emulsion, an even mixture of egg yolk, vegetable oil, lemon juice or vinegar, mustard and salt. The mustard acts as a binder and “emulsifier”. Through the intensive stirring, the ingredients combine to form a creamy mayonnaise sauce. In the professional kitchen, mayonnaise is the basis for many cold sauces; I will introduce the derivatives of mayonnaise:

You need fresh egg yolk for the homemade mayo. You can recognize the fresh egg by the compact egg yolk and the perfect smell.

2. Mayonnaise, the Sources of Errors in the Preparation of the Mayonnaise

If the mayonnaise does not succeed, this is due to the following reasons:

  • Egg yolk and oil were not tempered or too cold.
  • The oil was stirred in too quickly.
  • The oil content in the recipe is too high.

You need tempered ingredients to prepare the mayonnaise, then the mayonnaise succeeds safely. In the future, prepare all the ingredients at room temperature advice or at approx. 20°C two hours before the mayonnaise is made. Please prepare all tools clean, dry and fat-free. First mix egg yolk with mustard and salt, then slowly add the oil. At the beginning of the preparation, add the oil in a thin jet, stir vigorously and work into an emulsion. When the mayo is firm you can add a little more oil and stir it in.

3. Saving Coagulated Mayonnaise

Prepare the curdled mayonnaise at room temperature. Start the preparation again from the beginning: Use a fresh egg yolk, mix it with mustard and salt, slowly add some fresh oil and let the ingredients emulsify by stirring until creamy. Now you can slowly stir in the curdled mayonnaise.

  1. Use a high beaker so that you can mix the egg yolks well.
  2. Use the stirring disc from the hand blender, not the knife.
  3. Use tempered ingredients to make the mayonnaise 100% successful.
