Then fill Le Tube with a verrine nozzle and set the position to 5 cl (50 ml).
Make the béchamel by melting the butter in a saucepan. Off the heat, add the flour all at once and stir vigorously with a whisk.
Then gradually add the milk and continue whisking until the mixture thickens. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
