The Béchamel

The Béchamel

Ingredients:

25g butter.
25g flour.
300ml milk.
Pinch of ground nutmeg.
60g cheddar cheese, grated.
30g parmesan cheese, grated.

We are starting by making our roux. Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the flour and stir it, till it is forming a paste. Over medium heat, start by adding one third of the milk, remember to keep whisking to prevent forming of lumps. Continue by adding one third at a time, still whisking of course. Season with salt and pepper a pinch of fresh grounded nutmeg to add the little extra. Cook the sauce for another minute before adding the cheese. And Voilá, you have your Béchamel sauce.
