Spicy Chive Aioli

Did you know that there is a hierarchy to mayo? A hierarchy that reflects the lives we live. It’s true, I invented it myself.

  1. Spicy Chive Aioli
  2. Aioli
  3. Homemade Mayo
  4. Store bought Mayo
  5. No Mayo

 

Spicy Chive Aioli

On the bottom is the painful realization that you have no access to mayo. You don’t want to be here. Get yourself some mayo. ASAP.

The next step up is an improvement but not by much. This is the store packaged mayo that most of us are accustomed to, it’s silent and complimentary to most of our foods: much like a timid individual trying to fit in. This stuff is uniform and lacks personality.

You then have the homemade mayo, the genuine by-product of your conscious decision to be different, to be better! Unlike the uniformly labeled jars, you chose to be better via hard work (it’s actually only 5 minutes but that’s besides the point…you took the extra step).

Aioli, do you know what this means? Yes it means “oil and garlic” in Catalan. It also means that you have taken on a personality that separates you from most. You, my dear reader, have made it to the upper class in all things mayo.

Finally, if you haven’t settled for the previous level, you have Spicy Chive Aioli. This is the Bill Gates of mayo. Divergent from all the rest, refusing to conform to the norm, this mayo has flare and is packed with richness. I mean, even the color is green!

There you have it, go out and make the first steps to becoming a better version of yourself. Starting with this Spicy Chive Aioli of course.
