No Ordinary Mayo

Highlighting Homemade Flavored Mayonnaise from around the World

Homemade mayonnaise serves up international flavors with the squeeze of the trigger on your iSi Creative Whip. Mayonnaise is said to have been invented in either France or England but is now loved around the world.

In Provence and Catalonia, it’s aïoli, made with olive oil and garlic, served with seafood platters and grilled vegetables.In Japan, with rice or cider vinegar instead of lemon juice, they squiggle it on okonomiyaki. In Mexico, it’s lime instead of lemon, found on elote, one of the world’s greatest street foods. Roasted corn on the cob, slathered with lime mayo, sprinkled with spicy chili powder, and topped with finely crumbled queso anejo, a salty cow’s milk cheese. In Belgium, cones of golden, crispy frites are served with a classic side of mayo. In the U.S., restaurant cooks can’t seem to live without Sriracha for staff or their own personal meals. The spicy red pepper hot sauce mixed into mayo makes for an irresistible dip or sauce for everything from tacos to burgers, to fried calamari and catfish.

To make your own flavored mayo, mix up your ingredients, flavor it up (passing through a fine sieve if there are any chunks), charge, shake, and your ready to go.

Easy enough for everyday, your homemade mayo brings a world of flavor to your next tailgate or holiday party – and it’s only a squeeze away.
