  • 1 tsp mustard

  1. Twirl a tea towel around and around and then make it into a circle on your workbench (this will ensure your bowl remains secure during all the whisking!)
    put your bowl in the centre

  3. Gradually add your oil a splash at a time and continue whisking until combined and the texture of a thick mayonnaise- this can take a while so be patient.
