Béchamel sauce, also known as white sauce, is made from a white butter and flour and milk. It is one of the mother sauces of French cuisine. It is used as the base for other sauces (such as Mornay sauce, which is Béchamel with cheese). Get into the core and start doing your own white sauce at home.
