The perils of sauces ...

... made my chips and bernaise last night; lovely chips but the sauce was truly horrible ::g::. Far too buttery for my taste, and yet I followed the recipe to the letter. I didn't curdle it or anything, but I just didn't fancy eating it :). I will have to try again with a different recipe - I think having a jar of bought sauce that I like next to the cooker and throwing ingredients into my sauce until it tastes the same is a better way to go ::g::. I have a second recipe that puts the tarragon in last rather than cooking it with the shallot which may bring out the flavour of the herb better.

Any one have a fail safe recipe for bernaise sauce?
