Béchamel Sauce

This basic white sauce is the basis for many variations of pasta sauces. Just start with a minced onion and add cooked fish, ham or cheese at the end. It can also be used as a topping on a vegetable gratin.


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • salt and white pepper.


In a sauce pan melt butter. Add flour and sauté for a bit. Stir with a whisk while adding the milk. Let come to a boil, then simmer for 5 min. Add whipping cream and salt and pepper to taste.
