What is garlic aioli sauce?

Garlic aioli is a versatile condiment that is made using simple ingredients with a mayonnaise base. The addition of garlic cloves and spices creates a flavourful dip that is ideal for dipping truffle fries in – ask us how we know!

Traditional aioli uses fresh garlic for a more in your face flavour, roasting the head of garlic in this recipes yields a more subtle garlic-y flavour that we love.

This easy garlic aioli was developed from the mans obsession with the truffle fries and dip at one of our favorite local restaurants called Central. He orders the same thing every time that we go, the vintage burger and truffle fries.

While I doubt we’d have much luck recreating the iconic burger and fries at home, this aioli has been a winner for sure!
