It never ceases to amaze me how food products come about…and mayonnaise is one of those great creations.  Who would have thought that by whisking egg, vinegar and oil you could get this incredible delight that has transformed our sandwich eating lives…not to mention the addition to eating a chip.  Yum!

Here our Head Chef, Sean Kelly has put together a recipe for homemade mayonnaise with an added twist for this time of year, which includes wild garlic.  We are fortunate enough to have this wild stuff growing almost on our doorstep – in abundance.  It is sweeter than a normal garlic bulb so we make soup, pesto, butter and mayonnaise with the fine allium and serve the mayonnaise with our hand cut fat chips.

Go on, have a look in your back garden and you may be surprised at what you find then try making some – you know you want to!

      Great to hear from you and delighted you are interested in recreating our recipe. Pop down to the Fort Augustus Abbey and follow your nose (!)…there is masses of the wild garlic just past the Catholic Church along the main road just before the bridge in the wooded area…you can’t miss it. Happy Cooking!
