The perfect point for Carlos Arginiano to make homemade béchamel:
At the end of the recipe, Carlos shows us the question he gave the béchamel. You can leave it more or less as you like best.
Our chef’s recommendation is to leave the béchamel at a time when it does not look like a thick puree. Too much this will depend on the recipe we prepare. For example, to steam some cannelloni, we will need finer béchamel. To make croquettes, however, it will need to be thicker.
