sage mayonnaise an easy and delicious recipe to prepare, this recipe is a thick cold sauce or dressing commonly used in sandwicheshamburgers, and on French fries.


Before the sauce called Mayonnaise appeared in French cookbooks in the 18th century, several versions of similar sauces existed in Spain and in France.

In 1750, Francesc Roger Gomila, a Valencian friar, published a recipe for a sauce similar to mayonnaise in Art de la Cuina (‘The Art of Cooking’). He calls the sauce aioli bo.

Earlier recipes of similar emulsified sauces, usually bearing garlic, appear in a number of Spanish recipe books, dating all the way back to the 14th century Llibre de Sent Soví, where it is called all-i-oli, literally ‘garlic and oil’ in Catalan.

This sauce had clearly spread throughout the Crown of Aragon, for Juan de Altamiras gives a recipe for it in his celebrated 1745 recipe book Nuevo Arte de Cocina (‘New Art of Cooking’).[8]

A simple, creamy spread that’s perfect for leftover turkey sandwiches after Thanksgiving, or anytime.
