  • 2 egg yolks at room temperature
  • 2-3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100 ml olive oil
  • 100 ml vegetable oil
  • Freshly ground white pepper


  • Place the egg yolks, 2 teaspoons of the lemon juice and a pinch of salt in the bowl of your stick blender and process until the mixture just begins to thicken.
  • Pour the olive and vegetable oil into a measuring jug.
  • With the motor running, gradually add oil to egg-yolk mixture in a thin steady stream, occasionally stopping to scrape down the side of the blender bowl with a spatula, until the mixture is thick, creamy and pale.
  • Add the oil slowly, but not too slowly as the mixture could thicken too quickly (if this happens, add a little hot water, about 2 teaspoons, to thin down the mayonnaise before adding the remaining oil).
