Raw egg aioli promoted for Ocean’s Eleven screening

Dinner and a Movie on TBS is incredibly hokey and contrived, which makes it perfect entertainment fare along with trashy magazines and Tom Robbins novels while recharging at the beach.

During a (probably repeat) screening of the George Clooney Ocean’s Eleven remake on Friday night, the recipe to accompany the movie was ‘Risky Aioli;’ risky because, as the hosts said, the recipe included raw egg.

The host did say that if you didn’t feel up to it (were a wus) a tablespoon of commercial mayo could be substituted instead. They went ahead with the raw egg.

I’m guessing the egg-of-course-we-only-promote-the-cooked-kind industry didn’t register any health objections when the episode originally aired.
