Harold McGee in his latest edition of On Food and Cooking
mentions a couple of the La Varenne and Pierre de Lune as
"hollandaise like."

For La Varenne it's the Asparagus in Fragrant Sauce.

For Pierre de Lune  it's the Trout in Court Bouillon and Perches in  
Butter Blanc.

See page 585 for the recipes in McGee.
