Jamie O's Beautiful Mayo


Feeling snackish??? Us too. Why not whip us some of your own healthy, preservative free mayo to slather on all those veggies in your fridge. Try this beautiful, simple mayo recipe courtesy of Jamie Oliver. It will take you less than 10 minutes and it’s absolutely luxurious. You'll never go back to store bought.  Even when you can go back to the store :) 


  • 2 free-range egg yolks
  • 1 heaped teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 500 ml mixed oils (we used EVOO but you do you, boo)
  • 1-2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • ½ lemon
  • sea salt


  1. Whisk the egg yolks in a bowl, then add the mustard and whisk together. Gradually add about half the oil, very slowly at first, whisking continuously for around 3 to 5 minutes, or until thickened. Once you’ve added about half the oil, whisk in 1 tablespoon of vinegar – this will loosen the mixture slightly and give it a paler colour. Continue to gradually add the remaining oil, whisking continuously. Season with a pinch of salt, a squeeze of lemon juice and a little more vinegar, if needed. Store in a sterilised jar in the fridge for up to one week.
