* Béchamel sauce is delightful enough to use on its own to accent fish, poultry, eggs and vegetables, but it’s the derivative sauces made from the béchamel sauce that can really tantalize the taste buds, as well as get the creative juices flowing. One of the most common sauces derived from béchamel is the simple addition of cream. The classic name for this sauce is crème sauce. The addition of the cream delivers richness and creaminess that suits it to a host of applications. By itself, crème sauce is ideal for rich pasta sauces, as well as draping over a pan-seared chicken breast or sea bass.
