Cucumber, Hummus, and Lemon Tea Sandwiches

Actually the lemon rind has a natural sweetness when eaten with the tart flesh inside. I use to eat whole the lemon wedges that came with my tea as a palate cleanser after the meal. Just don't try it with limes or oranges.

Pork and Pâté Vietnamese Sandwich (Banh Mi)

I found a nice little recipe for the mayonnaise that is traditionally spread on the bread.

Prepare 1 egg yolk and 100 ml of oil (vegetable oil, or olive oil if you like)

1. Separate the egg yolk and egg white. Keep the egg yolk
2. Add the egg yolk into an electric mixer. Turn on at lowest speed.
3. Add half a teaspoon of oil into the egg yolk. Mix until the egg yolk and the oil are well blended into each other
4. Add another half a teaspoon of oil into the mixture and continue to mix until everything is finely blended.
5. Continue to add half a teaspoon of oil until you finish that 100ml

It should take about 30-45 minutes for 1 egg yolk. When finished, the sauce will have twice the volume of the original oil.
