Katie Holmes Celebrates 100 Years of Mayonnaise
Metro UK ^ | Friday 27 Sep 2013

Posted on 09/27/2013 7:36:39 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Katie Holmes might have distanced herself from the Church of Scientology, but few could doubt her dedication to egg-based sauces, as was shown this week with her becoming the face of Hellmann’s Mayonnaise.

The actress posed next to a massive cake shaped like a Hellmann’s jar at the company’s 100th birthday on Pier 84 in New York.

Going a little off message, Holmes told USA Today about the non-mayonnaise-centric dishes she likes to cook, saying she ‘flourishes at pancakes.’

‘I love food. I’m working on being a better cook,’ she explained. ‘I flourish at pancakes. I do sea bass, too.

Katie Holmes celebrates 100 years of mayonnaise Katie Holmes was all smiles as Hellmann’s entered its 100th year of making mayonnaise (Picture: AP) ‘Every little thing I do, I take a thousand pictures and send them to my older siblings. “See, I can do it, too”.’

The fun didn’t stop at Katie Holmes leaning gingerly on a table however, with Hellmann’s also breaking the Guinness World Record for longest picnic table at the event, which now stands at 320ft.

The Batman Begins actress may have picked up her PR expertise from ex-husband Tom Cruise, who was previously seen running along the Great Wall of China for some reason.

miracle whip is the most awful thing in the world....I grew up with Hellmans and after moving west used cheaper varities until I found that “Best” mayo is Hellmans, and it makes such a difference in recipes....

I’m sure I will be condemned as a heretic for this but...I don’t like mayonnaise. I’m a Miracle Whip man, especially on BLT’s.

And don’t get me started on aioli...

Hellmann’s is the only thing I will call “mayo”. Everything else is crap.

If she were the 5th person so to celebrate, she’d be the Cinco de Mayo.

She’s a little wacked. Why any girl would choose to be a beard for a gay dude is nuts, I don’t care how much money Cruise offered her, to let yourself be impregnated by his sperm and then divorce after the contract is up, what is she? A breeding cow?

An article was posted about that model a few months ago. I believe she’s in her 70’s now.

The ingredient list is obscene! There is nothing like homemade: egg yolk, oil, and salt.

Peanut butter, onion and mayo, I’m not kidding but you can’t talk to anyone after eating such a sandwich for a couple of hours (breath problem).

I’ve done that a time or two, but only on toast. It just doesn’t taste right to me on plain bread.

Another one that’s supposed to be good is PB and a little sweet pickle relish. I’ve never tried it, though.

Add to your list of ingredients just a bit of mustard powder and lemon juice. Mayonnaise made the real way is the best, but it can be a PITA to make with out a good food processor.
