Béchamel sauce: The secret to the taste of many dishes
Béchamel sauce, also known as white sauce, is one of the staples of French cuisine and is used in many different cuisines around the world. It is a milk-based sauce that gains density and creamy texture due to the addition of flour and butter. These three ingredients - milk, flour and butter - are the holy trinity that forms the basis of this sauce. Béchamel is used as a side dish or ingredient in many dishes, such as lasagne, casseroles and various types of pasta . It adds smoothness and creaminess, is an excellent binder for many ingredients, and is the perfect backdrop for many other flavors. We realize that making the perfect béchamel sauce can seem a little complicated, but the truth is that it is a process quite simple. The key is patience and constant stirring to avoid lumps.
