  • beshamel is a type of thickening sauce well-known in French cooking. I saw it listed in a menu miss-spelled as beshemel. I thought by now someone would have asked for a definition. Two tweets, one in French , one in Spanish, came up during my search. Both tweets confirmed my spelling and my basic definition.

    Signed, fabulous
