Sauces to Entertain

Basic béchamel sauce:
4T butter
4T flour
2 1/2 cups Clover milk
Salt to taste
Melt the butter over a medium heat before adding the flour and stirring through. Cook for 1 minute while continuing to stir to cook out the floury flavor in the sauce.
Slowly begin pouring in the milk in stages while mixing with a whisk to prevent any lumps. Once all the milk has been added allow the sauce to cook for another minute still whisking. Season lightly with salt.

1 cup mature cheddar, grated
1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
4T chives, finely chopped
4T Tabasco Chipotle
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Slowly begin adding the 2 cheeses into the sauce while stirring to help the cheese evenly melt. Add the chives and finish of with the tabasco chipotle.

To turn the sauce into a mushroom and pepper sauce:
3T olive oil
100g porcini or button mushrooms
1T roughly chopped rosemary
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper to taste
n a separate pan: Heat the oil over a medium heat before adding the mushrooms and allowing them to cook until golden and evenly cooked. Add the rosemary and garlic before cooking for another minute with salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper.
Add the cooked mushrooms to the béchamel sauce and stir through.

To turn the sauce into a parmesan and pesto sauce:
