Your mayonnaise is a great judge of character.  No, really, I haven’t lost my mind.  If you’re not vegan, and you hate mayonnaise, it is probably because you’ve never had anything but the homogenized, bland, store-bought variety.  Real mayonnaise, if fresh, is made of three simple ingredients: egg yolks, oil & acid.  I prefer farm-fresh eggs, olive oil and lemon.  The are hundreds of combinations each with their own quirks and complexities.  Mayo-making is an foodie’s artisan craft, and this next Call is a celebration of fine craft from basketry to furniture and everything in between.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from NICHE Magazine for the 2015 Niche Awards-Professional.  This is a celebration of fine craft at its very best.  I this one for you?
