Bernaise Sauce, MtAoFC, p. 84.
I made Bernaise sauce tonight for the very first time - also have not made Hollandaise before, so I also didn't realize that Bernaise is a variation of Hollandaise. It worked out very well, though I was worried it wasn't thickening properly. Put it aside to have our soup course before making the filets, and when I got back to the kitchen, it was very thick and I actually whisked in a little more butter before serving it. Delicious! Didn't take a picture of the sauce itself - in this picture, it's in the artichoke heart on top of the filet.
I read through the instructions both from this book and from TWC. Noted that this one also had a recipe for using a blender, but chose to do it au naturel, so to speak. Next time I think I'm going to try making "Sauce Choron", which is Bernaise with tomato paste.
