Avgolemono is easy to make and creates quit a stir at a formal dinner party. It is an almost ethereal sauce, light, foamy, and a beautiful pale yellow color. It is a great accompaniment to roasted meat or chicken, or poached fish, and it is heartily recommended for boiled artichokes. Add another cup of chicken stock and serve this as a perfect first course soup.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk until lemon colored and frothy, then beat in the lemon juice until the mixture is very foamy. Whisk in the hot stock a little at a time until the sauce is light in color and foamy. Serve immediately.
Yield: About 2 cups
