Bearnaise Sauce

Bearnaise sauce is one of the ‘child/daughter’ sauces from the Classic Hollandiaise sauce, which is one of the 5 Classic Mother Sauces.

The classic way of making Hollandaise sauce is to cook the egg yolks and lemon juice over a bain-maire with whisking them together to achieve the emulsification.

In this recipe I use a simpler method, which still achieves a wonderful rich sauce.
