Heat the milk with salt, white pepper and a pinch of nutmeg.
In a saucepan, melt the butter and whisk in the flour. Cook for 5 minutes over low heat, stirring continuously. Remove from the heat and leave to cool a little.
Return the pan to the heat and add the hot milk, whisking vigorously.
Cook for 5 minutes until boiling and pour into a bowl, covering with cling film to prevent a crust forming on top.
