Made from a base of butter and flour, béchamel sauce is practical and can be used for various recipes, such as gratins or other sauce-based dishes. This video demonstrates just how easy it is to make.

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and whisk until smooth. Whisk continuously until the mixture turns a nice golden colour, approximately 6 minutes or so.

In the meantime, warm milk until it begins to boil. Remove from heat and pour milk into the butter mixture 1 cup (250 ml) at a time. Whisk continuously. Bring to a boil and cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until it thickens. The sauce is ready when it coats the back of a spoon.

Remove from heat. Add salt, white pepper and a pinch of freshly ground nutmeg. Set aside until ready to serve.
