Having investigated its true origin, it seems that everything points to it being in the Mediterranean , which is why in Spain we quickly associate it with areas such as Valencia, Catalonia or Murcia. The reality is that this sauce is quite integrated into the gastronomy of the entire country.

The complex thing to achieve a thick, creamy and delicious aioli is its preparation, which consists of: 
  • Peel and halve 4 garlic cloves.
  • Remove the green part inside the garlic.
  • Cut the garlic into small pieces.
  • Put the pieces in a mortar together with a little salt.
  • Now we crush the pieces until we get a uniform paste.
  • Once we have that pasta that for now only has salt and garlic, we will add the oil little by little, while we will not stop mixing and moving the pasta at any time.
  • We will continue adding oil drop by drop, while mixing until we achieve a uniform sauce.
