When I was in France, I went to a traditional restaurant where you will find the traditional cuisine of France. I went there and ordered white pasta. I ate it and found it very delicious. In that white pasta, I found a thing that attracted me the most and was unique for me too. It was the white pasta sauce from which they have made pasta.
Before that day, I ate a variety of White Pasta but the way they have catered it was very unique. I went to the chef of that restaurant and I asked about the sauce that they have used in the White Pasta. He called that sauce Besciamella, I heard this word for the first time and I was very confused, so I asked him What is it? he replied with some information and that information is.
It is an Italian sauce or we can call it as one of the five fundamental French “mother sauces”. It was originated when Louis XIV was ruling over France. It is used in flavouring many dishes.
He also told me that, this sauce is used to make lasagnas, baked pasta dishes, poured over vegetables etc.
