  • Makes about 1 cup
  • Ingredients:
  • 2 – 3 small cloves garlic
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of water
  • 1 cup Master Miller Extra Virgin Olive Oil



Using a mortar and pestle, pound the garlic with the salt until smooth. In a separate bowl, add the egg yolk, about half of the garlic and a 1/2 teaspoon of water. Mix well with a whisk. Slowly dribble the olive oil into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly. As the egg yolk absorbs the oil, the sauce will thicken, lighten in color, and become opaque. This will happen rather quickly. Then you can add the oil a little faster, whisking all the while. If the sauce is thicker than you like, thin it with a few drops of water. Taste and add more salt and garlic, as desired.
