An essential technique for thickening a sauce, everyone should know this!


  • 50 grams butter
  • 50 grams flour


Step 1

Melt the butter, add the flour and cook gently for five minutes, taking care that the mixture does not colour.

Step 2

Allow to cool and refrigerate. This will last for a few days if kept covered and can then be added into sauces to thicken them.

Step 3

The roux must be stirred into a hot sauce, otherwise it is likely to form lumps.
