You might know white sauce by another name – béchamel, a famous fine dining sauce and a cornerstone of French cuisine. It’s often used in lasagne, mixed with other ingredients to make more complicated sauces, or poured over main meals. We think it’s perfect alongside the crunch of our cod fish cakes.
This one does take a little bit of time so it may not be right for a midweek meal, but it’s a great gourmet choice for a party or a special dinner. Make white sauce for fish, pasta, chicken and steamed vegetables (especially spinach); the results are well worth the effort!
