How to make mayonnaise

Put an egg yolk in a bowl with some salt, mustard, lemon and vinegar. Whisk together gently, then start to drizzle in some light oil in a very thin, slow stream. If you do this too quickly the mayonnaise may split, so be very careful.

Once the mayonnaise has started to become thick and glossy finish it with a little extra virgin olive oil to give it more flavour and colour, then add a little splash of water.
