The Delia Project (#50): John Tovey’s Quick Hollandaise Sauce

The Delia Smith Project: John Tovey's Quick Hollandaise Sauce

Finally we can enjoy some Swiss asparagus! And I’ve been keeping this recipe for Hollandaise Sauce in mind for just this purpose. Butter, wine vinegar, lemon juice, a pinch of salt and egg yolks. So simple.

Just one word of warning: you can keep this sauce warm by placing it in a bowl over some hot water. My water was in a saucepan and was simmering just a little because I forgot to turn it off… I nearly ended up with scrambled eggs! I managed to save it by whisking in a couple of tablespoons of hot water. Luckily, the sauce was very forgiving.

Here’s Delia Smith’s recipe for Hollandaise Sauce (almost the same as John Tovey’s).
