  • 1/2 cup dry vin santo or 1/2 cup dry amontillado sherry wine
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 pinch nutmeg (to garnish ) (optional)
  • 1 pinch sugar (to garnish ) (optional)


  1. Beat together the chicken stock, sherry, honey and egg yolks in a large bowl.
  2. Strain through a fine sieve into a soup pot.
  3. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg and set the pot over very low heat.
  4. Stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, add the butter a tablespoon at a time.
  5. Keep stirring as the butter melts and dissolves into the soup, just as it would with a hollandaise sauce.
  6. Continue stirring until the soup thickens.
  7. DO NOT let it come to a boil or it will curdle.
  8. When the soup is thick, pour into warm soup bowls and serve immediately, sprinkling the tops if you wish with a scrape of nutmeg and a few grains of sugar.
  9. Cook time is an estimate as the recipe does not give it.
