Aioli Sauce (Garlic Mayonnaise of Provence)
The hallmark of Provencal cuisine is aioli, a rich sauce of crushed garlic, egg yolks, lemon juice, mustard, white wine vinegar, and sunflower oil. A traditional summer banquet, Aioli Complet, consists of poached salt cod with a variety of fresh steamed vegetables, and bowls of thick aioli. Sometimes a boiled egg, shellfish, leg of lamb, and chickpeas are added to this feast. This displays the many delicious foods that are enhanced by delicious aioli. Try it on grilled fish or meats, chilled to the side, or grilled on top. Savor it in soups and sandwiches. It can also be used as a mayonnaise to liven up such dishes as potato or chicken salad. Aioli is more than a sauce-- it's a symbol of Provence!
