Sauce bearnaise. Today I want to share with you the recipe for my favorite sauce. Well, what about French cuisine without the sauce? In his name I thought he was a native of Bearn, the region which is located at the foot of Perineal. Imagine my surprise when I learned that the sauce is quite different origins. But it turned out he was in error. In 1837году chef of the restaurant of the hotel " Pavillon Henri IV ", which is located near Paris, forgot the fire sauce from onions-shalott. The sauce pretty much disappeared and to save his reputation, the chef added a beaten egg, butter and herbs. Customers loved the sauce and the question about the title, responded :"Bearnaise," sliding look at the statue of Henry IV, who was a native of Bearn.
