Sam Mason Opening Aioli Shop in Brooklyn

Why Mayonnaise Could Really Be the Next Big Thing

Yesterday, news that pastry chef and Dinner With the Band host Sam Mason is opening a mayonnaise shop spread faster than a dollop of Hellmann's on white bread.

The chef's shop, Empire Mayonnaise Co., will open in Prospect Heights in Brooklyn this November, and it will be dedicated solely to high-end aioli and mayonnaise. He plans to serve roughly 40 different types of the condiment, ranging from coffee to foie gras and mushroom.

Specialization in a singular craft is something that's flourished these days; we've seen stores that sell everything from just pickles to just hot sauce. What is newly fascinating here is seeing such a big name focus on such a specific condiment — although given mayo's ability to make burgers, fries, salads, and sandwiches transcendent, it sort of does make sense. Tell me your thoughts: does mayonnaise have the potential to be the next big food trend?

I have no idea but then again I am not completely gaga over mayo. What kind of put me off mayo for a while is seeing a picture of a woman eating straight out of the jar on the bus.

Mayo is my #1 most-hated thing ever... with the major caveat that I love truffle aioli.
