1. Definition Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is a cold sauce and is used as a basic recipe for many preparations. If the homemade mayo is successful, then it is an emulsion, an even mixture of egg yolk, vegetable oil, lemon juice or vinegar, mustard and salt. The mustard acts as a binding agent, as an “emulsifier”. The intensive stirring combines the ingredients to a creamy sauce mayonnaise. Where does the name mayonnaise come from? The exact origin of the mayonnaise is uncertain. The name refers to Maó, Spanish “Mahon”, which is the capital of the small Balearic island of Menorca. According to tradition, the coldly stirred “Salsa Mahonése” was served to French conquerors on Menorca. From France, this sauce began its triumphal march around the world under the French name “mayonnaise”.
The Duden says: Mayonnaise is a thick, cold sauce made from egg yolk, oil, lemon juice (or vinegar) and spices; short form: Mayo
