  10. Separate the yolks from the proteins and send them into a tall bowl. Proteins in this recipe we do not need.
  11. Also add wine vinegar to the bowl. Whisk the yolks with vinegar.
  12. Now gradually add two soup ladles of the broth in the bowl to the yolks (stir all the time with a whisk).
  13. We put the pan with the broth on medium heat and with a thin stream we introduce the mixture obtained into it. Stir the soup with a whisk.
