Anyone have the bernaise recipe from 1960s Flavor of France cookbook?

We’ve made this bernaise recipe every Christmas Eve for decades. We’re celebrating at our new house and my mom forgot the book! I haven’t been able to find it online, any cookbook collectors happen to have The Flavor of France cookbook and can look it up and share it? Please save Christmas!

Carlie I have the book! It's Tournedos Bearnaise. Page 9. I happened to look up the value of this vintage book I have and somehow this site came up. How may I send you the recipe? I realize this was posted 2 years ago or so.

I have the book.
I think I replied in comments by accident. How can I send you the recipe.

Thanks for your reply! I needed it that day since I had left the book at my parents house in another state, we’ve since been reunited!

So you have the book? You are welcome to have mine if you would like.

Waverly Root's FOOD OF FRANCE (1958) doesn't provide a recipe of sauce béarnaise, although he does point out that it's not actually from Bearne but from the ile de France. Here is the Escoffiier version. Hopefully you can see the entire recipe here.

Don't have that one but do use one from Julia Child. I'm sure that is's from 1970's.

We don't have that exact recipe, but here's an article on how to make bernaise without a recipe!
