Drain from the water and leave to dry before placing them on a board to cut in half.

MAYO

Place the mustard garlic, salt, pepper, vinegar and egg yolk into a Magimix bowl for approx. 2-3 mins until emulsified.  Pour the oil on to the egg mix quickly, adding all the oil.  You may need to add a little water to the mix if it gets to thick.

Place the mayonnaise into the bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and the potatoes
