  1. There are moments in life when one has to acknowledge ignorance and this is one – I have never used mayonnaise as an ingredient in a hot dish! My ignorance must be adjusted and I will give this a try when I get back to France (after all mayonnaise is French and therefore tends to have its own dedicated aisle along with the plethora of mustards to pick from in most supermarkets!)
