Cheesy recipes are my favourites, and when its about Cheddar Cheese Veloute, I cant be more happy. Garden veggies with fresh cheddar cheese and cream can soothe anyone's appetite. Infact, the first time when I tried this cheese recipe, I remember how I cribbed to prepare it for days. That heavenly flavor of wine, the spicy touch from chilli powder, all blending well in a bowlful of meat of chicken stock is simply out of this world. If you have already tried other forms of cheddar recipes, its time you should taste Cheddar Cheese Veloute.
