Chilli Mayo

  2. Slowly trickle in 3 cups of grapeseed oil until all oil is emulsified.

  2. Shape into patties and allow to sit in the fridge for about 2 hours, up to overnight, to make it easier to sear and grill.

Pickled Cucumbers

  1. In a small pot on medium heat, mix 2 cups white wine vinegar, 1 cup sugar, and 2 tbsp. salt. Heat just until sugar and salt is dissolved.
  2. While mixture is cooling, slice 1 cucumber, chop a handful dill, and mince 4 cloves of garlic, and place into a jar or container.
  3. Once liquid is cooled, pour over cucumber, and refrigerate overnight.
