Start preparing the mayonnaise that will fill the sandwiches with roast beef, rocket and pesto. Collect the egg yolks in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Squeeze the lemon and keep the juice. Start pouring oil drop by drop, mixing the ingredients with a hand (or electric) whisk and waiting for it to be well incorporated before adding more. As soon as the mixture thickens, dilute with a squeeze of lemon and continue alternating oil and lemon until exhausted. You will need to get a well whipped sauce.
