How to Make Mayonnaise – Gordon Ramsay’s Way

Gordon Ramsay’s Mayonnaise



Recently on The F Word Gordon Ramsay said not to be afraid of making your own mayonnaise, so come out from behind the kitchen table and let’s get to cooking.

Mayonnaise is basically just raw egg yolk, oil and mustard (mmm, healthy)!

Ingredients:

  • 3 egg yolks
  • teaspoon of dijon mustard
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper (freshly ground if possible)
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 1/4 cups of flavorless cooking oil

You can whisk this by hand, but it will take quite an effort, use a food processor if you have one.

Directions:

Put the egg yolks in a food processor with the dijon mustard. and turn the food processor on. The first 30 seconds of making mayonnaise is the most crucial, so be careful during this period and go slow with the oil. SLOWLY begin pouring the oil into the food processor while it’s on. After 30 seconds or so you can start pouring faster. Turn off the food processor when you’ve added all the oil.

Add the salt and pepper, then cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the mayonnaise mixture. Give the mix a quick burst with the food processor and done!

Store the mayonnaise in the fridge.

    Gordon uses English mustard for this, not Dijon. I just watched the YouTube video of him making it.

    I am looking all over for an F Word recipe for a potato dish; had sliced onions layered with sliced potatoes. Your website, as far as I can tell doesn’t allow me to just type in “potatoes” and have it come back with potato recipes. Very frustrating. I believe there is cream poured over the whole dish and baked.

    Can you help; I just see a long scroll of all his recipes; can’t see how to just fish out one.

    Thanks,

    We have tried 3 times to make this recipe. Once in food processor and twice in blender. Each time it turned out like watery liquid. The first time we added the oils slowly and stopped the food processor each time we added it. So we figured that dorked it.

    The next time in blender we used a medium low speed and very slowly added the oil. Like 1/4 cup per 30 seconds. It never made an emulsion.

    The last time we tried a fast speed and added the oil even slower, still wattery goop.

    You could see the yellow bits and watery bits in the fluid of all three disgusting.

    Also, one whole lemon seemed to make it too bitter.

    This is a horrible recipe or I don’t know how to do it. More likely that I dont know what I am doing. Please any help.

    We are huge Ramsey fans in San Diego and would love any help anyone can give.

    Maybe someone knows a good site with a good recipe. I grew up in Brasil and I grew up on homemade mayonaise and I know how delicious it should be.

    I have made mayonnaise and the key is to blend the egg REALLY well, and then add the oil a little bit at a time, then once you have added all the oil, KEEP blending it, it should get thicker…

    Use a Kitchenaid mixer with the whisk instrument. This is like owning a light saber.
