    Chef Luis Aguilar's Note:

    This sauce, used to prepare numerous white sauces, has a name that translates from French as "velvety, soft, and smooth to the palette". A truly excellent veloute should meet several criteria. The flavor of a veloute should reflect the stock used in its preparation: white veal, which will be nearly neutral in flavor: chicken: or fish. It is thickened with an appropriate amount of roux.
