Welcome to Mythical Kitchen Picks, the series in which the culinary experts from Mythical Kitchen tell you all about their favorite foods and ingredients. This week, the team is letting you in on all their favorite cookout buys—from meats to grill to condiments to snacks. Today, Lily Cousins is here to turn you on to her favorite flavored mayo, which she says is so good, it can even make a burnt burger taste good.
Lily’s Pick: Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayo
Whether you call it a cookout, a barbecue, a picnic, or a wiener roast, it’s one of the best summer time treats. The problem I have with a good ol’ cookout is that the person labeling themselves as “the grill master” sometimes ain’t no chef at all and I end up with a burger that is somehow both burnt and undercooked. That’s when I turn to Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayo.
Quick tangent: If you’re trying to become a better cook, sauces and condiments are EVERYTHING. Sauces teach you the balance of salt, acid, fat, sweet, umami; and once you understand that balance, you have suddenly graduated from non-cook to pretty good cook.
Okay back to my boo, Sir Kensington. I have a confession… I’m not always the best guest at a cookout and due to my poor time management skills, I am guilty of showing up empty handed (I’m sorry friends/fam who have kindly invited me to their wiener roast functions). So, if you’re like me, pick this chipotle mayo up at your local grocery store and stop eyeing the sketchy store-bought potato salad no one is going to eat anyway.
Squiggle this sauce on a hot dog, a shrimp taco, or some grilled veggies, and I guarantee a delicious bite that puts reg-o mayo to shame. I’m so passionate about this bottled good that I dare you to name something le Sir Kensington can’t do. Last I heard, he’s a fixer-upper of a burnt burger, he is more athletic than Miss Hellmann, and he’s compatible with every food that’s kissing your grill this summer. Happy wiener roast season, folks!
