Inspired by a recent "conversation" following the thread on an alternative way to make bechamel:
Ha ha ha, and I suppose you make Hollandaise in a blender too.........;)
I took that as a challenge, of sorts, and make this a "challenge within a challenge"! Can anyone tell how this hollandaise was made? :)

I remember years ago making something like a crepe pie. It was with my grandma and it was crepes and chocolate. It's must be almost 50 years ago!

Sheesh, nearly three weeks into it and I am finally getting around to posting my first entry, which was actually finished a week ago. As I mentioned, eggs and lemon.

The Players

Food Rangpur Ingredient Meyer lemon Natural foods


The ingredients for the soup. Chicken, of course, onion, garlic, eggs and lemon. I was going to use orzo, but the store was out, so I grabbed a box of ancini de pepe. And for those Nervous Nellies squawking "Cross contamination! We are all going to DIE!" lighten up. It is all going into the same pot in a little while. I am a home cook, not a line chef prepping things in advance. Sheesh!

The Process

The first thing to do is get the chicken poaching.

It goes into a big pot with a couple slices of onion, some garlic cloves and black peppercorns.

After about an hour or so, the chicken is pulled out of the pot.

The meat is pulled of the bones.

Ingredient Recipe Wood Food Cuisine


The carcass is broken up and put back into the pot to make the stock.

Barely at the simmer point for another hour or so. Along with about half a dozen big strips of lemon peel to add that citrus note. Strain the broth, then put it back in the pot over low heat. Add the pasta.

When done with the broth, make the avgolemono sauce.

Separate a couple eggs, juice the lemon that gave up its zest. Start by whisking the whites.

Once you get soft peaks, whisk in the yolks. And the lemon juice.

Whisk Food Ingredient Recipe Fluid


Slowly whisk the sauce into the hot broth.

Give it a good, but gentle stir. You want to end up with a creamy soup.

Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces, add it to the soup. Give it a stir, make sure the pasta is done, the chicken is hot. Check the seasoning.

The Product

Garnish with some fresh dill, a slice of lemon and have at it!

Wish I had made another batch of pita bread for this, would have been a nice touch. A very tasty, lemony delight!
