Lime Hollandaise – Starter

Ingredients: Serves 2

  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 2 large egg yolks

  1. Place the butter in a small saucepan and simmer on lower heat until the creamy part and oil part separate
  2. Fill a medium saucepan with a few centimetres of water, and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  3. In a medium heatproof bowl, combine the egg yolks, vinegar and cold water. Place the bowl over the simmering water and whisk constantly and vigorously until the yolks are thickened and light, about 3 to 4 minutes. (If the eggs begin to scramble or the mixture is cooking very quickly or gets too hot, remove the bowl from the heat and whisk to cool). Remove the eggs from the heat and whisk for 30 seconds to cool slightly.
  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and slowly drizzle the butter into the eggs while whisking constantly.
  5. Whisk in the lime juice, salt, and pepper to taste. (If the sauce is very thick add a few drops of warm water to adjust the consistency so it is creamy and light.) Serve immediately or keep the hollandaise sauce in a small bowl set over warm, but not hot water, for about 30 minutes.

How to Cook Sticky Rice


  1. Use good quality short grained rice. (we prefer nishiki or koshi: Yutaka brand)

  9. Rice to water ratio: 250g of rice: 330g of water.
  11. Place in a pan, cold, medium heat, no lid at this point, waiting to start simmer.
  13. After bubbles appear, place the lid on your pan, turn the heat down and simmer for 11 minutes.
  15. Turn off the heat and let rest for 20 minutes, do not remove the lid.
  17. Add seasoning, mix well and chill well in a refrigerator before using. (ideally overnight)
