Today we made hollandaise, and I learned a lot because it took me three attempts to get it right!
- Use a thermometer if you are a hollandaise nube. Your eggs will cook if they get too hot, and you aren’t trying to make lemon flavored scrambled eggs.
- Whisk like your life depends on it. Don’t be lazy and sit there checking your phone while your stir occasionally. You will end up with scrambled eggs or a broken sauce.
- According to the textbook we reference, lemon juice helps stop the cooking process, so that is just an interesting little tidbit.
