It would be easier to prepare this dip in the blender or food processor, but you will need a larger quantity of garlic for the size of the blender's bowl; double or triple the quantities but keep to 1 egg yolk (if you are using it).
Comments: This is an essential accompaniment to grilled chicken or quail. It is particularly tasty except that it will turn you into a social leper for a good 24 hours after you eat it. Still garlic is reputed to be very health and as long as you share this dip with the people you will spend time with afterwards, you don't need to worry. The traditional garlic dip is made with only garlic, lemon juice and olive oil but it does not rise as well as when you add an egg yolk, so you have the choice to make a proper aioli with an egg yolk.
