As a regular maker of a rather fine hollandaise, I can advise that if
your hollandaise is hot enough to melt your face, then your yolks have
definitely curdled and the emulsion separated. To avoid this, you
should take care to keep the temperature below 82 degrees Celsius
while preparing the sauce. Many would say that you should use a bain
marie for this, but I prefer simply to melt the butter beforehand, and
drip it into the yolks while it is still warm.

I have a degree in Classics from Oxford.
