Recipe by Lisa Pizza

For the SERIOUS garlic lovers only! :) I saw this made on Julia Child's show and had to try it. We used to have something very similar at a Spanish restaurant in San Diego and would CRAVE the stuff in between visits. This is pretty darn close. It's kind of a garlicky mayonnaise. We usually dip some nice bread into it, or artichokes. It's best if you use a mortar and pestle. You don't want to whip air into it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mortar, mash the yolk and garlic with the pestle until creamy.
  2. Slowly add olive oil while mashing/stirring, until desired constancy/flavor.
  3. Salt and pepper to taste--careful!
  4. It only takes a very small amount of each.
  5. Just a couple shakes.
