CtBF – Hard-cooked eggs with chervil mayonnaise

I don’t often make my own mayonnaise, but have done so in the past. David’s recipe is a bit different since it uses a whole egg instead of the yolk. Otherwise pretty straightforward.

But there’s a fantastic market near my work, called Asiana Market. It’s an interesting mix of Asian (from Japanese… Continue reading ffwd – lyonnaise garlic herb cheese
