You'll need

30 gm butter, coarsely chopped, plus extra for greasing 30 gm plain flour 350 ml milk 2 eggs, separated 1 eggwhite 80 ml (1/3 cup) pouring cream 60 gm Gruyère, coarsely grated   Mushroom sauce 120 gm butter, coarsely chopped 2 golden shallots, finely chopped 400 gm mixed mushrooms (such as pine, chestnut, Swiss brown), thinly sliced 60 ml dry white wine 250 ml (1 cup) pouring cream 2 tsp finely chopped thyme

Add mushrooms, sauté until tender (5-6 minutes), deglaze pan with wine, reduce liquid by half (1-2 minutes). Add cream and thyme and reduce slightly (1-2 minutes). Season to taste, divide among four 250ml-capacity ovenproof baking dishes and set aside.

  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200C. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat, stir in flour and cook, stirring continuously, until mixture comes away from sides of pan (2-3 minutes). Remove from heat, set aside to cool.
  • 03
  • Bring milk to the boil in a separate pan, then whisk into cooled flour mixture until smooth, return pan to heat and stir continuously until mixture comes to the boil, then cook, stirring continuously, until thick (2-3 minutes). Remove from heat, stir in yolks, season to taste, cover with plastic wrap and set aside to cool.
  • 04
  • Whisk eggwhite until soft peaks form, then whisk one-third into cooled milk mixture. Fold in leftover eggwhite with a metal spoon. Divide among four buttered 250ml-capacity metal dariole moulds, bake until golden (5-7 minutes).
