Just go by a box of bechamel at the store and you'll have a nice cream.This looks fantastic! For me, pastitso is all about he Krema - it is tricky to get it right. It looks like you have gotten it right!!! When my yiayia passed away, "the touch" that she had with the Krema passed with her. I feel like we are finally close to replicating.
You just add milk.I didn't know you can buy boxed béchamel, do you just add milk/water?
Good point! I like to buy European versions of the mix at Greek supermarketsYou just add milk.
My wife uses this one when she makes pastitsio (she's from Greece), but don't buy it for $13 because that's an outrageous price - it usually sells for about $3.50.... You should go to a local international store and look to see if they have anything.
