Take your time – it will be worth every buttery mouthful.

  • 10 tablespoons cold butter, cut in 1 tablespoon pieces
  • 2 tablespoons white wine
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 small shallot, diced
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  1. In a sauce pan, place the white wine, lemon juice, shallot and 1 tablespoon of butter.  Put the pan on medium and cook until almost all of the liquid is gone.
  2. Lower the flame to low. Add the butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking constantly.  When a piece of butter is almost all melted, add the next  piece.  Slow and low is key here.  Low flame, slow to add butter.
  3. When all of the butter has been whisked in add salt and pepper.  Taste!  Make sure there is enough seasoning.  Add the chives and enjoy!
