Video guide to making Novelli lump-free gravy
Julia: Hello Jean- Christophe, my name is Julia
JC: Hello Julia, how are you?
Julia: My gravy always goes lumpy. How can I produce lump-free gravy?
JC: I like the way she says ‘help me.’ Ah that’s fantastic. I think what is very important is before you do anything always make sure the pan remain warm. Then try to use a sieve, like so, and what you do is simple. You can acknowledge that the flour which has been going through the sieve is already absorbed by the residue
Julia: How clever!
JC: It is. Now I’m going to give you a spot tip to make your gravy more exciting. Add a little bit of cocoa powder in there. The smell of this is absolutely superb. If you want to come closer to me, I will let you to have a try. Shall I let you try this, are you ready?
Julia: Mmm, oh that’s wonderful.
JC: What do you think?
Julia: I like it very much. I like the smell and it gives the sauce a lovely flavour too.
JC: Are you happy with that?
Julia: I am, yes.
