Prepare a béchamel sauce by heating the oil and adding the sieved Schär Flour Food Service Mix; stir for a few minutes with a whisk, gradually add the milk and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg as required. Set aside a quarter of the sauce for the savoy cabbage cream and add the pieces of gorgonzola and the carrot cream to the rest of the sauce. 


Blanch the savoy cabbage leaves for about 5 minutes; add salt if necessary and mix with the béchamel sauce previously set aside.
