Cauliflower cheese?

Well done you. Takes lots of skill to use a roux and not have it taste flour-y.

I use a roux too when I make it. So much flour has been burnt in the course of me learning to make a roux correctly,

What kind of cheese?

Tricky. The secret is to go slowly, use hot milk but never let it boil.

I'd be very happy with that, looks lovely and smooth.

Since I got the hang of making a roux I've not really looked back - the cornflour is consigned to the back of the cupboard... like lots of cookery stuff, can be a bit tricky, but really worth it.

I found the perfect simple way to make cheese sauce. Get a tub of cheese spread (eg. Dairylea) and empty it into a saucepan with half a pint of milk. Heat gently whilst stirring, and hey presto, easy cheese sauce.

Nice work. Always better to make your own, and so much more satisfying to eat!

Personally, I've never had a problem with white rouxes, been using them for years - I didn't even know they could go wrong! Perhaps I'm just lucky that way. :)

Oh, the other easy-peasy way to make cheese sauce - grate cheese, add flour and toss through, then place grated cheese into hot milk/beer/cider/wine and stir. Fondue styleee. It's a bit riskier, you have to have a pretty good idea how much flour you need up front, but it's fast.

Thanks for all the positive comments. It was my first attempt, following Mrs_euphro's instructions and, to my surprise, it turned out really well, with no lumps.

The beer/cider/wine variant of your version does sound delicious, mat :)

Euphro says:

Oh, and the cheese was finely-grated double gloucester :)

Oooh, the idea of a good cheddar with cider makes my belly rumble - would be great with a pork chop and mash...
