The Boss of Sauce

Would you like to be a sauce boss this Thanksgiving? I know, maybe you'd like to be boss of something else, like a multinational corporation. Or even the boss of the family, because then you'd get to tell everyone what to do and how to cook everything while you sit in an armchair with a glass of champagne and some canap├ęs.

But Hellmann's Mayonnaise can only offer you this. To be the boss of sauce. It is not a particularly powerful position, really. It just means that you have a jar of mayonnaise and believe that you can make any kind of sauce by adding things to said mayonnaise.

For example you can mix mayo and canned cranberry sauce to make Tart Berry Sauce. Or add soy sauce and ginger to mayo and make, ahem, Yum Yum Sauce. Anyway, you carry on adding things to mayo and putting them into cabbage-leaf bowls until everyone becomes so frightened about your obsession with Hellmann's that they just make you sit down somewhere quiet in the living room, far from the cooking.

And of course, this is exactly what you wanted to have happen! Don't forget to grab the champagne and some snacks on your way out of the kitchen.

Yes! My goal exactly. (To be ostracised from the kitchen.)

I'd rather be villain of sauce, sitting in a cavern someplace, nobody seeing any of me but the back of my menacing over-sized office chair and one black gauntleted hand. But the hand would not be petting a cat, as evil villains seem to be doing. No, one hand would be mixing a dish with mayonnaise and secret ingredients only I know about. Everyone would love the sauce, but only I would know the recipe. An agent from Hellmann's would there, begging me to let her put the recipe in her magazine. No, you shall never know the recipe for my delicious sauce that everyone in the world loves! Bwahahaha!

I really need to get a life.

Judging by the photograph, 'The boss of sauce' has taken his (I'm making a huge assumption here) job very, very seriously. Only the turkey and ham have escaped - no, wait - there are FIVE POTS of sauce ready to take them over.......

Mayonnaise mixed with canned cranberry jelly is a horrible idea.
Just saying.
