TIPS FROM CHEF TO CHEF

01. Real Cheese makes all the difference when melted cheese is asked for. It has a superior taste and excellent melting qualities – and tastes great even when cooling down. Real cheese is made from fresh cow’s milk with no added flavourings. It is a highly valuable grocery and part of a health conscious diet. Cheese is an excellent source of protein and high in calcium and vitamins A, B2, B12 and D.

03. Roux is flour and fat cooked together and used to thicken sauces. Roux is typically made from equal parts of flour and fat by weight.

02. Depending on your taste, you can also use other fish. Smoked trout or salmon also taste great in this dish.
