3 Quick Classic Sauces You Need to add to your sauce arsenal. Hollandaise, Béarnaise and Mayonnaise are the trio of the ‘aises’ sauces. Each is egg yolk based with oil added for mayonnaise and melted butter for Béarnaise and Hollandaise.
Each sauce is a stepping stone to make other sauces
- buttermilk and herbs added to mayonnaise and you’ve got Ranch dressing, add garlic and you have aioli or add saffron and paprika and you’ve got rouille.
- leave out the tarragon in béarnaise and add tomato puree and you have sauce Choron or substitute the tarragon for fresh mint for sauce Paloise
- add dijon mustard to hollandaise for sauce Dijon, add curry powder for sauce cafe de Paris or add orange juice for sauce Maltaise
You get the picture……
Each of these 3 classic sauces you need has been made using the vortex method
No more whisking and whisking and whisking with this revolutionary method. You will need a stick blender for these recipes and a jar that the head of the stick blender fits snugly into. These sauces come together in a minute or two. WE LOVE IT!
The vortex is created when the stick blender gradually pulls down either the oil or butter onto the whirling blade by gently moving the stick blender up and down. Voila! Too easy.
This hollandaise sauce is unbelievably quick and easy to make. You’ll be putting up eggs Benedict in a flash. The sauce is emulsified with a stick blender in a jar and is foolproof. Instead of heating your eggs and adding the butter, you add hot butter to cold egg yolk. No more whisking and whisking over hot water. Voila! Here’s the link.…Easy Hollandaise Sauce

Not anymore! Here’s the link…30 Second Whole Egg Mayonnaise

It’s New Years Eve and Jen has just had a delivery of water, as her tanks are just about to run dry. Australia is presently gripped with severe drought and raging bushfires. Sadly many, many townships are either running out of water or have run out. She is fortunate to be able to have water delivered and siphoned into their rainwater tanks, whereby not everyone has tanks.
Cooper thought he had better investigate this huge hose and truck in the driveway, a first in his lifetime.
