He explained: “More on to the mayonnaise, really easy to make your own mayonnaise.
“I’m allergic to mayonnaise, so I have to make my own mayonnaise.”
“Are you?” Holly asked before Phillip added, “What are you allergic to?”
James replied, “It’s an acid they have in mayonnaise and kiwifruit.”
A surprised Holly remarked: “Oh really?”
“I’m really badly allergic to it,” James continued. “So I make my own.”
The TV chef mixed egg yolks, Dijon mustard and vegetable oil in a food processor.

“You basically mix that together, now it’s really easy, once you learn to make your own mayonnaise it’s very easy.”

The TV chef revealed that the homemade sauce should last “a couple of weeks”.
“Really?” remarked Holly before James revealed how to make lettuce cream.
