I first met Mrs. Avra, mother of one of my fellow students, in the summer of 1988 in Halkidiki. Warm, welcoming person and amazing cook. She was from island Chios but had become a “love migrant” in Thessaloniki because of her husband. Every afternoon she enjoyed her coffee looking at the sea.

I have eaten sea urchins only once in my life, when while we were swimming, he dived and caught a sea urchin and in the sea he opened it with a small knife, that she carried with her and offered me its eggs! Unique experience!

He also made me love & eat fish dishes with an amazing mayonnaise recipe. Therefore, from Mrs. Avra, I’ve learned to cook this light, but also cheap (because we use half the olive oil of the normal recipe and it yields the same amount) mayonnaise recipe.

In a bowl, mix the egg yolk with the mustard well and leave it aside.

In a bain-marie (no special utensil is needed, just place a metal or fireproof bowl over a pot of boiling water) we place the water, the cornflour / corn starch, the salt and pepper. Stirring them constantly with an egg beater whisk until it thickens and becomes the texture of a sauce. Also, you 'll see the consistency of the mixture has been slightly transparent.
