Place the garlic, seasoning, egg yolks and Dijon mustard in a food processor. Blend for a few seconds and then in a slow steady stream, pour the oil into the mixture through the spout. Blend until thickened and “mayo-y”. Do not over mix.

Serve this with freshly fried chips.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
