You may think of aioli as “upscale mayonnaise,” but it's far more than that, in the same way that risotto transcends “fancy rice.” There are few condiments as versatile and flavor-packed as aioli, a creamy, garlicky sauce with roots in the Mediterranean, where it has long been a staple accompaniment to grilled seafood, roasted vegetables and crusty bread, to name a few.

Right now aioli is having a moment, thanks to its ability to elevate even the simplest dish, imparting a punch of umami and a luxurious mouthfeel. While the classic version is made by hand-whisking egg yolks, oil and garlic into an emulsion, modern interpretations offer smart shortcuts for the home cook. With easy aioli in your culinary arsenal, you can transform ordinary ingredients into extraordinary meals bursting with character.
