  1. Melt the butter in a small pan.
  2. Tip in the flour and whisk together with the butter.
  3. Let this mixture (the roux) cook out for 1 minute, otherwise the sauce will taste floury.
  4. Add the wine and allow the alcohol to evaporate.
  5. Slowly add the stock and milk and whisk until combined. Bring to the boil, then cook at a strong simmer for 10 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened and become rich, then add the double cream and cook out. Your looking for a finish like a thick double pouring cream or even a thin custard.
  6. Add the parsley and cook for 2 minutes.
  7. You can go super pro and blitz in a high-powered blender until the sauce is smooth, but I think this should just stay home cooking and as it is.
  8. Season with Parmesan, nutmeg, salt, pepper and the lemon juice.
