Creamy Garlic Sauce Recipe

Aioli sauce recipeCreamy garlic sauce is just as it sounds. It is a rich, creamy sauce infused with the lovely flavors of fresh garlic right off the pod. These flavor elements are brought together with a base consisting of eggs, extra virgin olive oil and salt for added flavor. All this is combined until emulsified and the mixture thickens beautifully. Does this sound familiar? Creamy garlic sauce is also known as aioli. You have probably had it on various sandwiches or with fries. It is similar to hollandaise in terms of the ingredients but no cook time is required (just a lot of arm work). This rich, garlicky concoction originates from Provence, France. The first mention of the sauce was written by Roman procurator Pliny the Elder in Naturalis Historia published in the year 77. Many believe garlic was introduced to France by the Romans during the crusades. Chances are, the original recipe differed quite a bit and everyone has their own way of making this sauce today but the one below is as close to the original as possible. Get your mortar and pestle ready!
