To make the mayonnaise, mix together the egg yolk and Dijon mustard. Very slowly add in the oil, while constantly whisking.
Next, squeeze in a tiny bit of fresh lemon juice while continuing to whisk. Season to taste with salt and white pepper. Whisk together.
Once done, refrigerate until ready to use. Homemade mayonnaise is fantastic with pommes frites, calamari or crab cakes, just to name a few.
