Homemade Mayonnaise

"All good cooking is about flavor, and that's why fresh mayonnaise is worth the effort. It's inexpensive, easy to make, and tastes spectacular," says Tory McPhail, advisory panelist and chef at Commander's Palace in New Orleans. Refrigerate any leftover mayonnaise; it will be good for another four to five days.
