D’nis demonstrated a few recipes in the South Arm Multicultural Community Kitchen.

The first recipe is a Homemade Mayonnaise. You can make green mayonnaise by adding green herbs, or red  by adding a piece of red pepper or a chili.


  • one whole egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • juice of 1 lime or lemon, or 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup canola oil (or olive oil, or half and half olive and canola oils)
  • when thick, you made a delicious mayonnaise!
