When spanish people see this our first reactions are: 1. That's a spanish sauce you illiterate frenchman! and 2. Only such an obnoxious frenchman such als yourself would make it all wrong and put Egg in it!!
Well, I commend all people that come from my country to chill, accept that in southern france they also discovered that emulsifying garlic is delicious, that they call it the same way, and that we should all be grateful to the french, if not for the vast culinary, philosofical, literary,ETC culture they have created and shared with the world, then at least for uniting Europe around mockery towards them.
As long as its in good fun I'm all in.
(Spanish "hate" french bc of historical reasons,also their 90s governments resistance against Spain entering the EU. The worst thing is that they dont hate us back because apparently we were too insignificant to hate, which is weird because we had capes and really cool hats.)

the spanish ali-oli hasn't got mayo (eggs); the name of "ali- oli" comes from catalán language, and means "garlic (ali) and oil (oli): "ali" comes from latin "alium" and "oli" from "oleum". Latin etimology show us cuisine. Love your channel :3

Double dipping!!

No Dijon mustard, I thought it was mayonaise with garlic!

grafvonstauffenburg says:

It's a surprise that no lemon juice or vinegar was added; this is diff. but more direct & easier….esp., the vertical spoon test for viscosity….!

fresheclair says:

How would you serve this? As a starter? Just as a meal on its own for lunch or dinner? How much of each veg should one person eat?
