Braised mushrooms

In a skillet, brown mushrooms in a knob of butter. Add poultry stock and sprigs of coriander. Bring to a boil. Cover and braise over medium heat for 5 minutes. Set aside.

Hollandaise

In a round-bottomed bowl, combine egg yolks and water. Whisk in a double-boiler until very creamy.
