Sauce Bearnaise is a classic French Leading Sauce made from a Hollandaise Sauce made with a reduction of Vinegar, optimally tarragon vinegar (we want a lighter colored sauce), wine, chopped Chervil, chopped Tarragon, Black Peppercorns and Shallots. Sauce Bearnaise is finished with egg yolks and whole butter.
