COOKING WITH SIMON: Which came first? The yolk or the white





2 egg yolks

1 tablespoon white vinegar

1 teaspoon mustard

1/2 teaspoon each salt and white pepper

1 teaspoon boiling water

1 cup extra virgin olive oil


Place yolks, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk vigorously. Gradually drizzle in oil while continuing to whisk, alternately, you can do this in a blender and slowly drizzle in the oil. Add the boiling water. Taste for seasoning and make adjustments. If too thick, drizzle in a bit more water while blending. If too thin, drizzle in a bit more oil.
