• 6 to 8 fresh garlic cloves
  • salt (about 1/2 tsp for this amount or to taste)
  • 2 large egg yolks at room temperature
  • extra virgin olive oil (about a cup)


Place garlic and salt in a mortar and mash together with a pestle till it forms a smooth paste. Blend in the egg yolks, one at a time until the mixture is a smooth homogenious mass. Working very very slowly whisk in the olive oil, literally drop by drop, as you would while making mayonaise. When it is thick enough taste and add salt and pepper and optional lemon juice to taste.

Finally!!. This is the Aioli recipe I've been looking for. When I was in Canada some years back, there was a restaurant named Aioli beside the clinic where I worked. I like the name and the kind of food it represents. So now, I can make my own version of aioli making it suited to my own taste and preference. I'm glad about this Aioli recipe. Thanks.
