I was a little surprised not to see this version of Veloute posted here. According to "The Escoffier Cookbook" (the American edition of Guide Culinaire) Escoffier uses nutmeg and white pepper. Most of the recipes here either omit the nutmeg or use regular black pepper. Note that this recipe makes four quarts, so adjust as necessary. Also note that fish stock or chicken stock can be used to create two variations of the original recipe.
