How to make a white roux


  • 3 ½ oz all-purpose flour
  • 3 ½ oz butter


Step 1

Melt the butter in a hot pot or saucepan, being carful not to let it brown.

Step 2

Sieve the flour, add it to the butter and mix with a whisk until it forms a smooth, uniform mixture.

Step 3

Cook the roux for 2-3 minutes, paying attention to the colour which must remain white. Roux is used in cooking to bind sauces, like the classic béchamel sauce.
