Although I love to grill and “do it big” during the summer season, every now and then a nice sandwich is just right (especially when the kitchen is a construction zone). Salty, moist focaccia, the creamy, cheesy eggs, the smooth garlic kick from the aioli, the Danish salami – packed up nicely and ready to go! Fingerlickin´good…
I don´t know if you believe me, but it is summer in Stavanger, Norway (let´s not even start discussing that, ok?). And in the summer we throw grill parties and BBQs and go on picnics and boat trips and mountain hikes and late night terrace tapas parties. Let me present to you the perfect companion to all these events: smooth, garlicy, slightly salty, can´t-get-enough-of-it AIOLI! (or garlic mayonnaise if you wish)
Even though aioli is created by emulsification (a molecular gastronomical phenomenom) it is surprisingly easy to make. It just sounds fancy – don´t be intimidated! I made this out on the terrace. See? It is summer!
Homemade gifts are definitely hot this year. Why not go for some double heat and give your aunt some homemade chili oil this Christmas?
And edible gifts are also usually a big hit as they clutter less than yet another pair of candleholders!
