How to Make a Silky Aioli

June 20, 2012

Inspired by conversations on the FOOD52 Hotline, we're sharing tips and tricks that make navigating all of our kitchens easier and more fun. Today, Amanda coaches us through making a silky aioli. 

We've shown you how to make aioli, and how to fix broken aioli -- clearly, we can't get enough of this stuff.

The only thing that sounds more appealing than aioli? Silky aioli. Sometimes, homemade aioli can turn out to be just a bit too thick for our taste, too gloppy to hold on to its accompaniment. Here, Amanda shows you how to loosen it up to your heart's content -- because all aioli should be, and can be, perfect. 


Today's video was shot by Alex Lisowski, and edited by Kyle Orosz.

This video is labeled about aioli but it only tells you to put water into mayonnaise. There is nothing here about aioli...not even a hint. I know how to make aioli but maybe other people might think it's watered-down mayonnaise if they watch this. Why don't you make a video about making aioli the title says??
