    Elle, I’ve never tried to make the traditional one – must have a go some time if my wrists will let me. However, I often make the cheat’s one, and a chef friend told me to add a splash of lemon juice and some fresh parsley to kill the garlic breath. It works, and it gives it that extra bite too.

    Another way I use it is on tuna sandwiches instead of butter. Works with ham and cheese as well. Great post – you really must make time for more blogging honey x

      Yeah – the pounding is a killer on the wrists. You could transfer it to a food mixer when at the oil adding stage – but where’s the fun in that?
      We use it on burgers, with fish, in soups… and loads of other dishes. Bloomin lovely!
