Traditional Bechamel Sauce

Makes approx 600ml Rated:    
by Tenina Holder


Forget the lumps. Forget the stodgy thick and unappealing white mass.

A stock standard in your recipe arsenal, bookmark or pin this one for future reference. You will need it again and again. If you get Bechamel right, you will love it. If for some reason you get it wrong (read; use the wrong in not this one) then it can be quite a nasty experience. I love adding eggs to my bechamel, and the cooking temps and times need careful attention as well.
Discover is the best recipe out there. (Just saying!)
