We’ve heard the fancy french terms béchamel and mornay thrown around, but they always seem out of reach in the kitchen. Chef Ayo Cherry breaks down a basic béchamel and then transforms it into a beautiful mornay with just a handful of ingredients. Spoiler alert: it’s not as difficult as it seems.
Ayo Cherry is the executive chef and owner of Served, her private chef and catering company. Her road to operating her own company began with a referral, and a great steak, leading her to becoming Lil Wayne’s personal chef. Currently, she has a rotating list of celebrity clientele. Ayo won Supermarket Stakeout on Food Network and you can catch her cooking on Buzzfeed’s Tasty.
