Make a Classic White Sauce

This versatile white sauce can be used for many dishes including Macaroni Cheese, Lasagne, Cheese sauce for a cheesey Vegetable Gratin using leftover vegetables and lots more!!!!!!


1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan very gently. Make sure it doesn't brown or this will affect the flavour and colour.

2. Remove from heat as soon as it's melted. Add cornflour and continue stirring to form a glossy paste, known as a"roux".

3. Return to a gentle heat for 1 min to cook the cornflour, still stirring.

4. Remove from the heat again and add a quarter of the milk and beat vigorously until completely smooth, mixing well with the roux.

5. Return to the heat and add remainder of the milk stirring all the time on a medium heat until the mixture starts to bubble.

6. Add salt and pepper, cheese if needed and use in various dishes.

Bon Apettit.
