Schmaltz (chicken fat) is the new go-to fat in the food world, but it’s been indispensable in Jewish cooking for generations. Chef Evan Bloom at San Francisco’s Wise Sons has many clever uses for it, including this silky, rich aioli. Plus: Chicken Recipes and Cooking Tips

How to Make It


In a medium bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the vinegar and garlic. Add a few drops of oil at a time, whisking constantly until the sauce starts to emulsify. When it starts to look creamy, gradually add the rest of the oil in a very thin stream, whisking constantly until a thick sauce forms. Whisk in the schmaltz in a thin stream until it is incorporated. Stir in the tarragon, parsley, celery leaves and savory. Season the aioli with salt and pepper.


Schmaltz is available in the refrigerated section of most supermarkets.

Serve With
