mayoIt has been a while since I posted about a good condiment.  In the realm of condiments, I have a weird relationship with mayonnaise. Generally, I don’t use mayonnaise on a regular basis, but when I do it is usually in a restaurant and it is something a little better than the standard jarred stuff.

I have found over the years that mayonnaise in a sandwich is pretty blah and a waste of fat and calories, so I usually use spicy mustard or something with a kick.  But a good mayonnaise used as a condiment for French fries or something, can be really awesome.

The latter being what attracted me to the folks at Empire Mayonnaise.

About Empire Mayonnaise: “Founded in 2011 by chef Sam Mason and designer Elizabeth Valleau, Empire Mayonnaise creates mayonnaise with exotic flavors and formulations. We use natural and organic local eggs and flavors whenever possible, but our primary goal is to make the best tasting and most interesting mayonnaise possible so we do source ingredients from all over the world.”

In particular, I want to try Empire Mayonnaise’s “Jubilee Collection” mayo infused with malt vinegar – the perfect companion to French fries I would say – or chips as it were with the nod to the Queen’s Jubilee.

About Empire Mayonnaise’s “Jubilee Collection” Malt Vinegar Mayonnaise: “Not all British cooking is amazing, but one thing they do better than anyone is French fries, or ‘Chips’. But then again, maybe it’s the malt vinegar they douse the hot greasy treats in. Since mayo is our favorite condiment for fries, we’ve created the best of both worlds here. Use it on fried things, fresh things… anywhere you would usually want a pop of malty tang, combined with the smooth creaminess of mayonnaise. Delicious!”

By the way, did I mention Empire Mayonnaise has a bacon flavored mayo?
